Monday, April 01, 2019 – The Green Final Four
Do you know why you are so tired today? You have just completed at 31 day March.
What a March of madness it was if you are a basketball fan. First on the men’s side of NCAA Division I. I am sure my Alabama buddies are as thrilled about Auburn reaching the final four as I am about Texas Tech reaching it. So let’s go Virginia Cavaliers. Beat the Tiger with the auburn fur. Let’s us remember that I picked Michigan State to win it all. Puffy Spartan! Please do not let me down. And finally, PLEASE anybody but Tech.
Now to the women’s side of NCAA Division I. Does anyone know the words to the Stanford fight song? Tonight Stanford will play the Girls of Muffetry – AKA Notre Dame at 8:00 on ESPN2. I wonder if Muffet will wear the lime green boa around her neck. Did you see those lime green stilettos she had?
Speaking of green colors. Baylor plays Iowa at 6:00 on ESPN2 tonight.
Speaking of even more green colors. The Oregon Ducks will wait for the winner of Baylor and Iowa State. Yesterday, against Mississippi State their uniforms looked like two of the colors in the Crayola Box escaped. It could be a semi-final of various shades of greens and yellows.
And not wearing green. The UConn Huskies will play the winner of Notre Dame and Stanford.
I am not wearing green to watch any of the games. I do not have any green pajamas. Sic ‘Em Bears! And what every the Dancing Tree of Stanford Cardinal (like the color, not the bird) says. Are we for certain really smart people go to Stanford?
If Baylor does not win, I will offer the following quote by one of my favorite, and so articulate heroines, Hermione Granger.

Friday, March 23, 2018 – Weekend Events
I know. I was absent for two days. My bad.
The clock ran out on the Texas Aggie men’s team last night. It rained three pointers for Michigan all night long. Still proud of you Ags! But as usual, it is the women who will have to take control and BTHO Notre Dame.
What an exciting weekend we have awaiting us. It is the Sweet Sixteen for the women’s basketball teams. Still in are: Texas A&M, Baylor and THE University of Texas. Baylor plays Oregon State at 6 and The UT plays UCLA 8:00 tonight.
The Aggie women play ND tomorrow at 3:00 on ESPN. Dear God, about that stomach virus for the Irish, tonight would be a good time for it to sweep through the team. PS – Sister Jean loves the Aggies!
Because of the late game and because it is The Big Event in BCS, the March for Lives on campus does not begin until 5:00. Therefore Ms. Navasota and I will move our March for Our Lives protest to the courthouse square in Brenham. This time slot fits better for our food and drink schedule.
I am wondering what to write on my sign. Suggestions are most welcome. I still my flag shirt from 1969.
So HWIT – “I wore this shirt in 1969. I did NOT plan to wear it when I was 69 years old and having to do this crap again.”Marching on to other weekend events. Sunday is Palm Sunday marking the beginning Holy Week for Christians. With so many TV offerings, I hope the 60 Minutes Interview with the President El Dick Tator’s porn star mistress does not interfere evening church services or with Charlton Heston (former NRA President) and The Ten Commandments.
Happy Week End.
Praise the Lord and Pass the damn basketball!
