the Madness...

One might assume I'm not into basketball or any athletics, for that matter, but I am when it comes to March Madness for some reason. Maybe because I like choosing my brackets and then having someone to root for? I don't know...

Please notice that I'm typing in orange today. I'm also wearing orange. Though I wish it were for Illinois, I'm sporting it in celebration of the Longhorns' victory last night over West Virginia. What a crazy game!

Throughout that game, I couldn't help but sing the words "West Virginiaaa...." as in a Brad Paisley song to which I know no other words or melody. That's all. "West Virginiaaa...."

And seriously, I can't believe Duke and Gonzaga both lost! Are you kidding me? Talk about madness!!!


And on the Gonzaga note...this guy, Adam Morrison, is the least likely guy to ever look like a b-ball player. As my roommate said last night he needs to get rid of the trash 'stache. sick. And dude, it sucks that you lost, but you need to get up off the floor now.







That's all for now...we'll see how tonight's games go.

yeah, that was awkward when he fell down and started crying. Actually when UCLA scored to go ahead he started balling on the floor. I was upset for him as well especially after having complete control of the game. But he's got a great pro career ahead of him so he'll get better. I can't imagine crying like that on national television though!

Yeah, I felt bad for him, too, for a minute and then I was like, get up buddy. He is good and he will do well.

I am watching Villanova right now. I hope they win. If they do, Jake has a good chance to win some money. I already lost in the ESPN pool.

I like to refer to Adam Morrison as "Almost Famous" since I think he bears an uncanny resemblance to Billy Crudup in that movie.

Morrison cried with 2 seconds left. Dudes with the crusty look shouldn't cry on national tv.
