March Madness

It’s one of the sure signs of spring.  No, not new bright green leaves on the trees.  No, not the blooming of bluebonnets.   No, not even the warmer temperatures.  None of those.

It’s March Madness!  The NCAA basketball playoffs to determine the best college teams in the country.

Whether you’re a basketball fan or not, it’s hard not to take some interest in the competition.  Sweet Sixteen.  Elite Eight.  Final Four.  National Championship.  It’s exciting to see if your favorite or a local team advances in the rounds.

Like most of the planet beyond our borders, I've been watching a good deal of the World Cup. Despite the hornet's nest drone of the ubiquitous vuvuzelas and the fact that soccer players tend to react like they've been trepanned with a soup spoon whenever an opposing player so much as gives them a hard stare, I've been enjoying it.
