Tourney Time, Fly Zone, Keith Returns


Some of my friends are already asking me who I have in the final four (men's, of course). I'll be honest...I haven't even had time to look at a bracket, yet. I do know that it's going to be awfully hard to pick against Ohio State. When you have great guard play, 3pt shooters, and a big man inside, you have it all. By the way, I hope you're not in the same pool as a Hassel. My Dad and I clean up, in March. Good luck, you're gonna need it...

Thursday's opening round (now called the 2nd round) is my favorite day of sports, all year. It would be nice to have a rooting interest, but sometimes it's better not to. In 2006, when 3 seed Iowa lost to the team that shall not be named, the entire tournament was ruined. I plan on firing up the grill, grabbing a few adult beverages, and taking it all in. I'd do it on Friday, too...but I have to work.

Ladies first, except in college basketball. The men had their selection show on Sunday, and the women got theirs tonight. Iowa State, Iowa, and UNI, are all dancing again this year. I'd like to get excited about it, but I don't see any of these teams making a run in the tourney. If I'm wrong, I'll gladly eat my words.

A year ago, Cyclone fans were all jacked up about landing highly touted recruit Eric McKnight, from North Carolina. One year, and 1-point a game, later...he's gone. McKnight decided to transfer, and from what I hear, that's a good thing for both parties.

If you saw SoundOFF, you're aware that I bought a car from a rotten-toothed British dude, in a Minneapolis strip mall. And, no, I'm not making up the fact that his fly was down the entire time.

The wife is out of town all week. Any ideas for things that I absolutely NEED to do? I have a long list, myself, but I know there are some things I'm not even thinking about.

While Andy and I were slaving away at work, Keith sent us this picture of him slaving away on vacation. The tide is about to turn...Keith returns Tuesday. Welcome back to reality!

I am sure Murphy had a good time at at a certain beach hotel in Florida with all the other Iowans that were there as well
