Like I said yesterday, I've started to go mad for March Madness, and today was no different. And what a day it was--all sorts of upsets, and my bracket is starting to look like a mess! Two games were particularly exciting to watch: Western Kentucky's upset of fifth seeded Drake, and then a similar overtime game with San Diego upsetting UConn, of all teams! Last minute shot games are the ones that always have you riveted, but I was equally pleased to see Butler knock off South Alabama. Right now I'm in the middle of watching the Hoosiers play Arkansas--go Hoosiers! (I know, I contradict myself by cheering for both IU and Purdue, but I'm just like that.)

I really have more to write about, as today was Good Friday and my father and I attended the evening Way of the Cross service at my church, but I will save that for tomorrow. AND, tomorrow will also be my last six-days-a-week blogging day! Hurrah--I did it!

more tomorrow...have a great, basketball-filled evening. There are loads of games on, what are you doing reading this?

You seem to have the same level of madness that my wife has. Her whole pool thing fell apart on Friday. Of course I keep teasing her about UCONN or as I call them "Calhoon's Goons"! Also, Gonzaga getting knocked off so soon was a surprise.

Gil...I had heard that Davidson might upset Gonzaga, but we had gone ahead and put Gonzaga as winning that on the brackets--just to be hopeful :). The big upset that we called was Kansas State over USC--I was very proud :). Otherwise you're right--our brackets are kind of a disaster!

Happy Easter to you as well!
