65 Teams Means 33 Tournament Games To Be Played In Two Days
Our virtual office will be closed this Thursday and Friday due to non-stop television coverage of the NCAA Mens College Basketball opening round of March Madness. Games will start about 9 a.m. Thursday and the first round will not conclude until about 18-hours thereafter.
So, with annual Saint Patrick’s Amateur Irish Binge Drinking Night on Wednesday, this may make it the longest weekend of the year. Even with the federally-mandated Daylight Savings Time law in-effect, the added hour will not be a factor at all.
I did not consult Uncle Ricky, so here are some unadulterated favorite colleges to make next weekend’s Sweet Sixteen semifinalists: New Mexico Lobos, Temple Owls, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Butler University Bulldogs, the Duke Blue Devils, Saint Mary’s Gaels or Villanova Wildcats, Texas A&M Aggies, KY Cats or TX Longhorns, Wisconsin Badgers, University of Florida Alegators, Syracuse Orangemen, Michigan State Spartans, Kansas Jayhawks, Notre Dame Fighting Irish or the Baylor Bears, University of California Santa Barbara Gauchos, and the Georgetown Hoya Bulldogs.
We’ll see what Vegas oddmakers think in tomorrow morning’s issue of USA Today. Who knows, my dog Teddy and I might win a free trip from the Left Coast to the Final Four inside Indy’s Lucas Oil Drum Stadium. Sounds like a business trip, doesn’t it? Maybe I can visit with my pharmaceutical friends at LLY and my latest author phenom (CJS) who resides down near Lake Monroe, Indiana.
Enjoy the games! May be all have a safe week on the highways, along pedestrian crosswalks and bike paths, and in the air.
