One wek certainly made a difference in the opinions of the Briejay fan. Last week, it was a feeling of complete indignation as the team they've loved for the last half-dozen or so years got passed over for the NCAA tournament. This week, that's the furthest thing from their mind.
OMG! F-in Kentucky is coming! Ashley Judd! Rick Pitino!
Umm no. We'll see if Mrs. Franchitti comes to town, but I think Pitino is going to concentrate on his current job. But whatever trips your trigger.
Amazing how the indignation from last week disappeared. The Brie stopped whining about Arizona (in the Sweet 16) and Michigan (kept it close against Oklahoma in the 2nd round), and have turned their attention to the Wildcats. Wisely so, since the arguments against the NCAA tournament committee just got weaker and weaker...especially with the egg that Creighton nearly laid against the Perverts in the 1st round.
Speaking of the NCAA tournament, not a lot of upsets, but it's been awfully close. My bracket looked a lot better before LSU knocked off Butler. I also took a flyer on Western Kentucky, which almost paid off. But alas...close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. One thing is for sure: CBS does a great job with the telecasts, especially with switching you between games. How about Friday night, when CBS bounced you back and forth between Ohio State/Siena and Wisconsin/Florida State.
I think every Husker basketball fan had the same disgusted feeling over the lunch hour on Thursday. Every Roburt Sallie three-point shot was a shot in the gut, as Sallie went for 35 points for Memphis to help the #2 seeded Tigers hold of Cal State-Northridge. I'm sure someone in the academic support office in Lincoln was feeling awfully uncomfortable on Thursday.
