Every post I make about college basketball is prefaced by, “But I don’t really watch college basketball.”
That being said, every year I get sucked into the tournament. The flawed, terrible, glorious tournament. I can’t imagine a lot of progress on my novel will be made over the next four days.
Also, I picked UCLA (beating Georgetown), and now it seems like everyone and their blind uncle is picking UCLA.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I was at the game, and four hundred feet away, so I had no way of knowing this. Also, I was too depressed to look too deeply into the coverage afterwards. Anyway, why did no one tell me that Rasheed was cursing out Flip Saunders on the court during the loss? Seriously, why did no one tell me about this? (I just heard about this on Simmons’ podcast with Gus Johnson.) We definitely look out of sorts in big games.
