Well, here we go.....a trip into the blogging world. Who knows how this will go and how often I'll do it, but at least I have a blog now.
The blogging is not the madness that I'm referring to. Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the year with the NCAA Men's Basketball tournament getting started. There are just so many games and so many close finishes and a few upsets along the way. It's just so unpredictable.
Who am I rooting for? Well, I've got several answers for that. My favorite college basketball team is the University of Arizona Wildcats. Why does a guy who grew up in Southwestern PA like Arizona? Well, my Aunt moved out to AZ back in the mid 80's, so I've been following U of A since the Sean Elliot, Steve Kerr, and Jud Buechler days.
Who else? Davidson. Why? My dad went there, so I've been following them for the last ten years. They've been close a few times in the NCAA tourney. Maybe they'll pull it out one of these years. Back about ten years ago, they had Robert "Tractor" Traylor and Michigan on the ropes, but couldn't finish it. They've also had Maryland and Ohio State on the ropes in the last few years.
Who do I think is going to win? Who knows.....UNC? UCLA? This year's going to be so wide open. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and the next month.
What's the goal of this blog? Again, who knows?!?!?!?!? But, I hope to share my thoughts on sports, my faith, my wife and her triathlon adventures, and my teaching and coaching in high school. We'll see where it goes.
Thanks for checking out the blog and come back to check out my 2008 Pittsburgh Pirates preview. They're my favorite team even though they're on the verge of making history next year with the most consecutive losing seasons. But, there's plenty of time to talk about that down the road.
