NCAA Hoops thoughts

Monday, Mar, 25 2013

Quick thoughts on NCAA hoops:

Sorry to see the Green Bay women bounced in round one to LSU, on their home court.  The NCAA's handling of home court  advantage in women's basketball is atrocious.  It's all about ticket sales...the big just keep getting bigger.

Speaking of Bigs, the GB women were really weak in the post last night.  Too many outside shots will catch up with you.

On the Men's side, wow, this could get crazy.  From Florida Gulf Coast, the first #15 seed to make the Sweet Sixteen, to a #13 seed, Lasalle.  Three of the four #1 seeds are still alive.  I lost my bracket favorite, Georgetown, right out of the gates!  Louisville, Kansas, Miami and Ohio State are my picks now--good luck!

A new Pope

Tuesday, Mar, 12 2013

What a fascinating process, this search for a new Pope!  Admittedly, I am not Catholic, but the whole process is amazing. What other nominating/selection/election process is anything like it?

First, we get this exclusive group of cardinals together, close the doors, lock the windows, take away their cellphones and require them to pray for guidance on which among them they should vote for.  Then, they scribble their vote on a peice of paper, and one by one, walk it up to the ballot box.  Three people count the votes and burn them immediately, with black smoke if no one gets the required votes, and white if the new Pope is found!  Wow!
There's just nothing quite like it, to see people watching a smoke stack to see what color the smoke might be!

Keep an ear to WHBY, as we will break in with coverage once the smoke goes white.

Bad bug!

Wednesday, Mar, 6 2013

Ever notice how rotten it is...to feel rotten?!  I was laid up for a couple of days with a stomach bug--knocked me out of commision for a few days.  It sucks to get sick!  What a waste of time!

OK, you have to stay down for a day or two and let it finish beating you up. But, I rarely get sick, and lounging around like a sloth is not my favorite thing. TV stinks, ESPN repeats everything they do 90 times a day, and as attractive as Giada is on Food Network, I'm just not hungry right now! 

Plus, I was supposed to attend a conference in Washington D.C., and thanks to my bug, and lousy weather, that's not happening this year.  Oh well....at least I dropped 5 pounds in the last few days. The hard way.
