Michigan Madness

The "N.I.T." will have to be spelled without Michigan this year, as the Wolverines break the 11-year NCAA tournament drought with the No. 10 seed in the South Region. Will they make a "Beilein" to the final four at Ford Field in Detroit this year? Now THAT would be sweet! At least the Ed Martin taint has finally been purged.

Good luck to everybody in their various office pools (DISCLAIMER: Except those competing against me, in which case - Good luck to me!). Here are some Youtube vids to set the mood.

That basketball was like a basketball to me.

#1 son graduated high school in '93. He started playing hoops in a competitive league when in 4th grade. He was really wrapped up into it and after a couple years I started calling him "Basketball Jones." He didn't like that.

He was captain of his high school team in his senior year. But, being a 5'7" white kid at the time (he's still white) couldn't be considered for a Div. 1 school.
