Joy to the World (Part 2)

Tragically, 2007's Thursday of Thursdays turned out to be a bit of a letdown. But I assume it's safe to say this is why the basketball gods chose to make 2007's Saturday of Saturdays one of the finest I can recall.

It started with the "mighty" Musketeers of Xavier University coming within a gasp of upsetting the #1 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes. This was followed by Butler University fending off Maryland in the final seconds and Acie Law (the Michael Jordan of college basketball) and Texas A&M fending off Louisville in the final seconds.

That, however, was only the beginning.

As I sipped by festive St. Patrick's Day brew at Barney's (with Wrigley Field towering right outside the window) I watched on one TV as Georgetown rallied from eight points down to fend of Boston College's potential upset while on the TV right next to it cinderella Virginia Commonwealth and Pittsburgh went into overtime while on the TV right next to that TV Vanderbilt and Washington State went into DOUBLE overtime.


You know how at the end of Christmas Day you feel a little depressed because now all the presents have been unwrapped and that space beneath the tree is empty and you have to wait another 365 days for it to happen all over again? That's the same kind of depression I'm going through right now.

Barney's? I think you went to Bernie's. Alchol is the leading cause of forgetfulness in young men; do you consume more than 3 drinks in a night?
