It's the most wonderful time of the year!

First day of spring... everything starting to bloom and come back to life.
And most importantly...  Tourny time!  And even though UK isn't in the big dance this year... and My Racers didn't make it either...  My Tops did! And even though I didn't graduate from there, WKU will always hold a special place in my heart.  After all, I was with that team in New Orleans when they gave Florida a run for their money back in 01'.  So yea, they're still my team.  (And Georgia will never know how good of a coach Felton was)

Anyways... I love March Madness because it's the only thing that can get my heart pumping like I'm watching a horror flick or something.  Honestly, I was up last night watching Illinois chip away at Western's comfortable lead... and it looked like they might pull it off!  But thankfully, UK turned down Pettigrew (Ky's Mr. Basketball a couple years ago) and he sunk 2 free throws when they counted most.  ahhhh Go Tops!
Oh, and UK looked pretty good in the first round of the NIT against UNLV too the other night.

After the first day/night of the big dance... I have only missed one pick.  Though I'm sure that luck will change today.
But the three Ky teams are holding it down so far!  Moorehead, though an OVC rivial of the REAL MSU (Murray) won their first round... and they get to play overall number 1 Louisville!  So honestly, even though UK isn't in it... The state of Kentucky is well represented.
I am pulling for the Cards this year, as I think they've got a great team, and I still like Pitino a lot.  Best all around coach in college basketball if you ask me.  But really, I just love watching good basketball, and this is the most wonderful time of the year!  Even Tennis and some golf is starting back up!  What more could a person ask for?!

As every year... I'll post my bracket.  Sorry it took me till half the first round was done.  My bad.

just fantastic...

So most of you that still visit the site, probably know me pretty well, and already know about my grandfather.
The family and myself would like to thank you for your thoughts and prayers in this time of loss.
He will be greatly missed.

And to top it all off...
