Wow, its March 6th and this is my first reference to March Madness. No sense getting hyped to early. Lots of energy will be expended this month. We love the madness. Its only 14 days 18 hours and 22 minutes away by the Countdown to First Tip-off Clock I found online. Actually it was on a page I was looking at for the history of the tourney and it was in the upper right corner.
I caught the madness bug back in the mid 1960’s. When UCLA started its run. And then Lefty came to Maryland and swore to make the Terps the UCLA of the East. He gave it a great run. College ball is so much fun to watch. You don’t get the spirit and excitement at the pro game unless its playoffs and then its a bunch of rich people who don’t know how to get excited.
When you see student sections standing the whole game. You see them doing coordinated dances and songs. Wearing school colors by sections. And of course going totally ape s__t when they win. One thing that does bother me is all the big shots with the big money and the best seats aren’t using them often.
I was just thinking about how much more I write in the blog than I intended when I set out. Little did I know there was a writer caged inside this skull. And it is something I’ve come to enjoy. Of course on the other side of the coin by doing this I’ve exposed myself to the old adage of “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.”
I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed but I’m plugging away at it. And one day I’ll hopefully have a lot more wonderful images to go along with the random banter.
Random Thoughts of the Day
The word “Jeopardy” took on a whole new meaning today. Best of luck Alex.
I saw my sister for the first time in quite some time and it was good.
I’m seeing each day as an opportunity greater than the one before it.
(%@Y%@#$@*& – Sorry I was just COLD.
It’s already been proven over and over, there are people above the law. And there is a good chance we will see this played out again. I don’t like it and it pisses me off.
