There are so many possible blog topics: Butler University in the men’s NCAA National Basketball Championship game again, my saga with a cold that wouldn’t quit, more lessons through Bailey—and those are just the simple choices. There are always the heavy hitter topics, like radiation leaks, earthquakes, the Middle East and stuff like that.
Let’s start with Butler. Of course, I am rooting for Butler tonight. There are so many reasons why. Once again, this small school with way less money and resources is taking on a giant. I even like UConn. Well, I like some of the players. Kemba Walker has a great story, and I have no doubt all of Harlem will be rooting for him to shine. However, I still have to go for the little school with the geeky looking coach. Tonight, Butler I hope takes home the championship. I am rooting for the coach who is a math and science guy and who left the great corporate ladder to take the assistant coaching job because he loves basketball. I am rooting for the team that has the higher graduation percentage and who isn’t under an NCAA investigation. This isn’t a mistake this time around. This Butler team came right back to the Final Four and back to the championship game. They are not some wild card. Tonight, I want to see them take home the prize!
I could go on and attempt to talk about other noteworthy topics. However, the cold I mentioned is demanding I quit trying to write long interesting pieces and wrap this blog up quickly. I think taking another nap may be more important than sharing deep insights.
Plus, if I don’t post this soon, the big game will be over and I will have missed adding my two cents along with all of the other bloggers out there about Butler and basketball.
