Tuesday, March 29, 2016 – And Then There Were Four – As in Four for UConn

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 – And Then There Were Four – As in Four for UConn

And then there were four teams from the Women’s basketball NCAA Division I. And Then There were four teams on the Men’s basketball NCAA division I. Then there were none – None of the teams of either gender that I care about.

Headed to Women’s Final Four in Indianapolis, Indiana for the UConn Invitational will Geno and the Giants, the Beavers of Oregon State, the Huskies of Washington (Dub is actually an Alaskan Malamute) and the Orange Fluff Ball from Syracuse. Otto the Orange

Should have used last year’s bracket.W Bracket

Headed to the men’s Final Four in Houston are Oklahoma, University of North Carolina, Villanova and the Orange Fluff Ball from Syracuse. FYI  – The Orange Fluff Ball is named – Otto the Orange.

Headed to assist the Baylor softball and baseball teams to assist the pitching coaches will Kim Mulkey. For the sports challenged – in an act of frustration during last evenings Baylor/Oregon State game, Baylor women’s coach Kim Mulkey threw her most beautiful and very expensive gold jacket a good thirty yards in an act of frustration. Next year, Coach Mulkey, since you know going to receive a Technical foul anyway, throw your jacket at the referees. (NCAA Rule Violation Section IX, Paragraph 6, Part B, Sentence one – Jacket Throwing). Apparently the only three people in the arena and across ESPN who did not see the Oregon State player hold on to the Baylor player for good 1.4 seconds were the three referees standing within three feet.

Super Tuesday, March 1, 2016 – VOTE! March Comes in Like a Lion and Goes Out Like a Lamb. VOTE! Let the Madness Begin.

We shall leave the political March madness and let it continue to run amok on its own social media course. Now, it is time for March Madness – COLLEGE BASKETBALL!!!

Get ready because I follow both men’s and women’s Division I NCAA college basketball. For the sports impaired – this is the sport with the big, round, brown ball that one bounces and tries to put through the tall pole with hoop attached to a net. Players wear uniforms that resemble underwear.

Here’s What I’m Thinking will be your handy guide to the bazillion DI college basketball games about to be played across the Sisterhood of ESPN. As in football, HWIT may or may not actually be about basketball.

Beginning Thursday (because tomorrow is Texas Independence Day – March 2 – a sacred day in the history of Texas) you can look forward to such insightful topics as:

  • The Teams
  • The Coaches
  • The Brackets
  • The Schedules
  • The Mascots – Really? Your school’s mascot is a spider (Richmond) or a blue hen (Delaware)?
  • CPR for Buzzer Beaters – Or Do Not Throw your Dammit Doll toward the TV or Do Not Through Your Computer Tablet Toward the TV while you are watching two games.
  • A Critique of the Announcers – Welcome to Brent Mushberger. Now, please go away.

  • The Texas Aggies
  • The SEC Conference

And the most important one of all – Fashion – This will include, but not limited to:

  • players’ uniforms,
  • players’ footwear,

Hair is a separate category – in basketball – it is all about the hair!
