Have you heard?
‘Olympian Blue’ is the Pantone Color of the Week on Stylelist.com.
Designers tout the strength of its ‘jewel tones,’ and how this ‘pop of color’ enhances neutrals. As we say in the country…
I say Olympian Blue is especially hot this week for one reason and one reason only…
‘Cause these bad boys are burning a trail up and down the floor!
Sweet Sixteen and beyond…
GO BIG BLUE!

Today The Sticky Egg dedicates this space to its mighty alma mater, the University of Kentucky Wildcats, the first team to earn a spot in the Sweet Sixteen of the 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament!
It’s also the first day of Spring, and I can’t help but notice — everything is coming up blue!
But that’s March Madness for you.
Gotta love it.

It’s called the Sweet Sixteen with good reason.
Making the Elite Eight and Final Four is, of course, the raison detre, but surviving that first weekend of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is oh, so sweet.
Your expectations beyond that point — well, that pretty much depends on who you are.
For the Cinderella teams like Northern Iowa, Cornell and St. Mary’s, any other wins they amass at this point — as my friend Jason so aptly put it this morning — are gravy.
But for a seeded team for Kentucky, Duke, Syracuse or even Ohio State, any loss is a huge disappointment to both the team and its fan base. They are expected to win from here on out.
No exceptions. No excuses.
If only the seeded teams could look at each win going forward as ‘gravy.’
Would that make the final victory even sweeter?
