March Madness is…

march madness

  1. Having a panic attack mid-afternoon when you fear you may have missed one of the Sweet 16 games.
  2. Breathing a huge sigh of relief when you realize they don’t begin until after 7pm ET. Geez.
  3. Keeping your birthday open because you don’t know the game schedule yet.
  4. Wishing the games would just get here…and wanting them to last forever, all at the same time.
  5. Being grateful every day that you are an alum of the University of Kentucky!

GO BIG BLUE! #BBN #TIMEFORNINE

Fashion forward (and center and guard)

As I sit firmly planted on the couch, enjoying another full day of March Madness, I noticed a trend amongst the basketball players.

(And I’m not talking about falling seeds.)

More and more are wearing tights under their shorts.  A quick survey of Google images reveals many NBA players are making this choice as well.

I for one consider it a slam dunk.

Being a fairly pasty person, I find displaying my glowing gams to be a fashion don’t . The older I get, the smarter this decision becomes.

If these basketball leggings inspire fashion designers of everyday wear…

The NCAA tourney will have more than one winner this year!

Bully for you

I didn’t expect the ESPN documentary I Hate Christian Laettner to make me like the guy.

It’s a movie, not a miracle.

But unlike a movie plot, Laettner’s story exhibits no signs of growth or learning over the past two decades. In his interview, he seems as much of an arrogant bully now as he was 20 years ago.

What did surprise me was not only  Coach K’s acceptance of his behavior but also his decision to let Laettner have ‘free reign’ to bully others — not the best message to send.

I guess winning was more important than how they won.

I’m glad we currently have teams in college basketball who can win the right way…and I still hate Christian Laettner.

Blue-White Day North

In honor of the Kentucky Wildcats’ undefeated regular season record of 31-0, and their start in tournament play, the mayor of Lexington, Kentucky declared today Blue-White Day in the glorious proclamation below:

blue white day

And I, in no official capacity, proclaim for New York City and surrounding environs —

Ditto.

Kentucky just beat Florida 64-49 in their first SEC Tournament game. Thanks for the positive juju, Mayor!

Do you see…

What makes a person look older?

Grey hair? Mom jeans? A few extra pounds?

According to the announcers calling the UK-Florida basketball game —

It’s readers.

The announcer actually called them ‘cheaters’ when he spied them in the crowd on UK superfan and actress Ashley Judd. You could hear his disbelief, his teenage fantasies becoming as blurry as the words on her game day program.

She had aged before his very eyes.

One word: progressives.
