This is going to be a two post day. One I should have posted yesterday, because it is about Easter, but it is the more serious of the two so I will post it later. First a word about …
Basketball – I pull for the teams I like, rather than the teams that help my bracket. And there are a lot more teams I hate, than teams I like. I pull for the SEC even if it costs me in my predictions. I root against the ACC, Big 10, Big East, and Pac 10. There is a pecking order within those conferences though. I have no particular vitriol for Arizona St., or Wisconsin, for example. (I’m pretty neutral about the Big 12) I Loved watching Duke lose and would have loved to see UCLA lose. (Apparently Kevin Love is immune from moving screen, or any other, fouls.) I stand virtually no chance of winning any of my groups at this point, so I'm just watching for the enjoyment of it.
The teams I hate most in order are (1 & 2 could be reversed depending on the day) 1. UCLA 2. Duke 3. North Carolina
The teams I want to see win it all this year in order are 1. Western Kentucky 2. Tennessee 3. nobody, but I guess I'll take Kansas
