Running Out Of Steam With The NCAA Tourney

It’s been a long day, but a good one filled with a lot of basketball and a lot of ramblings and musings on my part.   But as they say, all good things must come to an end, and while I plan to watch the rest of the night’s proceedings, this will be the last entry on the blog tonight regarding the tourney.  Unfortunately, there’s too many things I didn’t do today while I was watching games that are now demanding my attention.

Tomorrow will see me running in a number of different directions trying to get things done — and alas, none of those directions lead me back in front of the television during the day, so I’ll have to settle for the night’s games to satisfy my college basketball fix.  My picks for the first round are still on record here and here, however, so even while I’m not present to laugh at all of my screw-ups, you can do it for me.

In the meantime, other observations made during the day so far:

— So much for my earlier comment that “Chattanooga is keeping it surprisingly close against UConn”.  I’m not sure if Chattanooga actually scored again after I made that comment.  UConn is an explosive squad, and they showed it with a vengeance against their over-matched opponent.

— Speaking of an over-matched opponent, American was anything but against Villanova — but the Wildcats just had too much for the underdog to handle.  Losing Villanova in the 1st round would have done some damage to a number of brackets, not just mine.

— And speaking of brackets, mine is holding up pretty well at this point.  We’ll see if I’m still saying the same after the weekend.

And I’ll be back again at some point before the weekend is out (hopefully late tomorrow).  I enjoyed this exercise in pointless updating — maybe I’ll try it again with something else down the road.
