March Madness


Another reason I've been a little out-of-pocket online is the season in which we find ourselves.  I'm not talking Spring necessarily (although it is in the 60's today!).  No... the season of March Madness.

Having grown up in a state where little boys were given their first basketball in the nursery... and now little girls, too... basketball is a big deal in our house.  I hope to not sound sacrilegious if I call it nearly a religion in itself.

This afternoon, I was taking a little nap when I woke up to shouting coming from the vicinity of the family room.  It turned out there were numerous upsets going on throughout the various tournaments and the guys were watching three games at once... all coming down to the wire.

There is something about David beating Goliath on the basketball floor that brings out the best (or worst?) in all of us.  It gives individuals hope that within this crazy world, there are times when the little guy wins.

Of course, if your team is a Goliath then you don't want any such occurrence.  So far, we're still good (crossing fingers, and toes, and anything else I can think of... even if I don't believe in luck).  ;)

Woo hoo!!!! NCAA Tournament Time, Baby!

Like my Dickie V attempt?

Okay, Brenda, you are probably the only blogger I read where I could even write something like that and the blogger wouldn't think I was deranged. (Well, I could do it at Dukie Lindsey's blog too.)

I hope your team brings their A Game. I've got them in my Elite 8 in my bracket. :-)

I can not imagine have three men in the house watching three different teams. If you could have slept through that, you could take a nap in Time Square. ☺
