I will go ahead and procrastinate with everyone else considering our posts aren’t due till next week (according to the syllabus).

I want to give a little shout out/rant.  The fact that millions of people fill out brackets in hopes of getting every pick right is absurd to me.  I can understand hoping to perhaps get a certain percentage of games right, sure maybe 80%.. maybe.  The fact that anyone thinks they can predict the tournament is absolutely absurd, and maybe that’s not why they do it.  Perhaps people do it just for the fun or the money.  The unpredictability of sports is why we love it in the first place.  The fact that the underdog can win at any time.  I love rooting for the underdog.  Either way, March Madness is awesome but not because we fill out millions of brackets but because we love to see the Cinderella story. Also, is that why they call it “The Big Dance?”

The baseball team (Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders) opens up conference play against Western Kentucky this weekend (who got thrashed by UK tonight). #goblue
