It's that time of year. Before the weekend is out, we will know the 65 teams in the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament. My team may or may not be there, but I will still watch. Just like I watched or listened throughout the weekend. Didn't even have a dog in the fight, but I just can't help it. Love me some basketball.
Just couldn't wait to give you my final or 'favorite' four, in no particular order....
or maybe they are.
1) Villanova - coached by Jay Wright. Currently ranked number 4 with a record of 32-2.
2) Iowa State - coached by Fred Hoiberg. Currently ranked number 13 with a record of 25-8.
3) Kansas - coached by Bill Self. Currently ranked number 9 with a record of 26-8
4) St. John's - coached by Steve Lavin. Currently ranked number ... oh, they're not exactly ranked in the AP poll, but they received votes, with a record of 21-11.
It is my gut feeling that Kentucky won't make it to the end. Just saying.
Those are some of my favorite teams to watch. What's that you say? Well, I'll be darned... Those teams do have well-dressed and fine looking coaches.
I love watching basketball. Love football. Have almost figured out soccer, don't think I could call a game yet, but I get it. After basketball, I have to be open-minded about my sports. I'll admit, I have a hard time watching pro baseball on tv, but I can watch it live any day of the week. Golf, yes please. Nascar -- I like that because I can multi-task while it is on. Horse racing, count me in.
Don't misunderstand. I am not an uber-fan of any of these sports, just capable of watching with a decent general comprehension of what is going on. And I am perfectly capable of getting up in the middle of any of it and walking away. I might need to take out the trash, do a load of laundry... who knows. Most sports make good background noise if I need to be doing something else.
