Happy Trails To You! Until We Meet Again!March 21st, 2013 at 5:07 pm by Lawrence Gilligan under Latest Posts, Sports
I woke up this morning feeling like a kid again. For every basketball fan, the NCAA Tournament feels like Christmas Day. Number one seeds are like the family members who give you the same thing every year- in this case, 2nd round wins. Then, we all have that crazy aunt or uncle who gives us a present that is completely random. In this case, it’s the upset. My upset of the day was 14-seed Davidson beating 3-seed Marquette. The Wildcats had the nation’s longest winning streak at 17 so picking Davidson to topple Marquette just felt right. However, instead of bringing joy, Marquette won and I get a fat lump of coal. The Golden Eagles outscored the Wildcats 11-5 to end the game thus the 3-seed moves on in the big dance. D’oh! This, is what Christmas in March feels like. I ALMOST got new golf clubs, instead I received a velour sweater-vest.
