“The Ball Is Tipped…”

03.20.08 10 years ago 25 Comments

First day of spring. First day of March Madness.

And, you know, I feel like I’m getting it coming & going this year.

First, Syracuse didn’t make the tourney. I met my folks for lunch the other day & my Dad laughed as he took pride in that fact that “Georgetown made it…and ‘Cuse got in the other tournament.”

Second, while Nike did bless The Orange with a shoe, it’s a fuckin Dunk. A Dunk? Nike, could we not have received the Trainer SC Highs that Davey Thompson wore or just a simple pair of AF1s?

I guess all hope is not lost & I will rejoice in the fact that bball will be on TV from dawn til dusk over the next few days. The Vols & Vandy both made it in (Memphis too…but I tell ya, whole ‘nother world away to me).

If nothing more, I’ll sit through the next few weeks of games just to hear that one final song, taking a moment to relish it all as they flash the images & clips across the screen. And trying to hold that sugar lump back so as to not tear up.

Sorry, that song gets me every time.

Feel free to rep your squad & e-trash talk now. I’m going to take my stuffed Otto mascot & go check for NIT gametimes.
