In honor of March Madness, this seemed appropriate.
Last week Scott and I went the the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs game. The game wasn’t much of a game, but it was a good time.
College basketball season is here. It started over the weekend, but for me really kicked off last night when Kentucky played Duke and won. It was their third game of the season, but the first against a top tier team. Excluding defensive rebounding I think they looked pretty good. Since Kentucky basketball has returned I… Continue reading College Basketball Season
The first week of March Madness has come to an end and it’s been a wild one. Of the 11.5 million brackets completed on ESPN, only 1 remained perfect at the start of Saturday. This tournament is all about surviving and winning by 1 on a controversial call or blowing a team out counts the… Continue reading March Madness Opening Week
The Kentucky basketball team is pursuing perfection. I’m sure every team was, but Kentucky has made it through their regular season without a loss. There were a couple scares, overtimes, and below par performances, but they’ve made it through the first 31 games. For the most part the regular season doesn’t matter. It’s just preparation… Continue reading Pursuit of Perfection
It’s nice to see the NCAA allow this. College Moves Up Season So Dying Basketball Player Can Play First Game, about a young lady diagnosed with a brain tumor. A terminally ill basketball player in Ohio will get a chance to make her dreams come true with her first college game.

The team recently had what was essentially… Continue reading Basketball Season is (Almost) Here

I went to Columbus for Cheer Power. While there we went to the Arena District to watch Kentucky beat Louisville. Next stop is the Final Four.
The last 7ish days have been busy. I went to a funeral on Tuesday for the previously mentioned mother of an 8th grader at David’s gym. Wednesday we left for David’s wedding in Florida. Thursday, while in Florida I talked to a couple friend that will be opening their own gyms soon and gave them… Continue reading 7ish Days
Human errors in sports are a reality. They’ve change the results of games and cost people a spot in the record books, just ask Armando Galarraga. What should we do to try to eliminate these?

If the Clearinghouse gives a green light, the kid should be able to play without future penalty to the school. If the Clearinghouse later learns… Continue reading College Athletics
The NCAA Tournament field has been announced and Game One has been played. A lot of Kentucky fans are upset about our path, but I’m not too bothered by it. Assuming the higher seeds advance, we’ll play East Tennessee State, Texas, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Duke, and Kansas. I’m not upset with this path because it’s… Continue reading Tourney Time & Jealousy
