Monday – basketball edition

TweetThey didn’t pick Syracuse for the NCAA tournament? They didn’t pick SYRACUSE for the NCAA tournament?? This is an outrage. Excuse me while I lie on my fainting couch a moment. ::curses stupid selection committee:: Other than that, the brackets are intriguing.

Tweetis that we have free wi-fi at the airport. Wo-hoo! Just wanted to say thanks to Notre Dame for an excellent game last night. They played way above and beyond the call of duty, esp. that freshman guard, Tory Jackson, who is my New Favorite Player on Opposing Team. It was one of the best […]
