Election Day or College Basketball

Leave a comment

Ah who cares about Elections when there is more important stuff going on. Like the start of the College basketball season. Duke and Kentucky will be a nice diversion from the endless results and commentary on the election. Yes that is the important thing. Yes I voted. Yes I care deeply about the results.

But, my excitement today will be in the kickoff of the College Hoop Season. The joy today will be hearing from my Daughter but that is more personal in nature. So back to college basketball. The Terps (University of Maryland) kicks off their 100th season tonight. Wish I could attend but being out on election night would be a mortal sin in the business I work in. But the March towards March Madness has begun.

I’m glad to see people voting and excited about doing so. I also saw something earlier I wish I could remember. But the message was be humble in victory and gracious in defeat. I’m sorry, you probably heard me laughing. Of course people are going to crow about it on either side. Unless you have been living under a rock, its gotten noisy out their. But I’m going to try to take that advise. I think you earn more respect by acting right.

Remember “we are all made on main.”

Remember we are one nation.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
