Sunday night’s double overtime victory by Michigan State over Kentucky was nearly enough to make me forgive Kansas for screwing my brackets on the first weekend of March Madness… a loss that means for sure I’ll not win a pot of what will probably amount to dozens of dollars.
MSU’s on a roll, and plays N. Carolina in the Final Four next Saturday. Prediction: MSU 81, N. Carolina 76.
Thankfully, the Spartans made it past Duke on Friday, so there was no repeat of the infamous 1999 campus riot. Living a couple of miles from campus at the time, I could nearly read by the light of the burning cars. Now, since I’m over 30 miles removed, potential rioters should forget about the need for a repeat of that episode… I own a lamp now and don’t need the light. Thanks anyway.
