I was going to the gym today when I spotted some workers constructing this giant ESPN U(niversity) sign outside the athletic facility. Apparently there’s a lacrosse game tomorrow between Johns Hopkins and Virginia? Fair enough, but I didn’t think we had any lacrosse rivals other than Duke that would warrant this kind of festivity. I might stop by the gym tomorrow to see what’s going on, though it’ll probably be rainy.
This year’s NCAA Basketball Tournament, while providing a few wild games, has been disappointing in terms of big upsets. All the #1 and #2 ranked teams with the exception of Wisconsin are in the Elite Eight, and the odd team out is still a high #3 team (Oregon). I’ve picked UCLA and Ohio State to go to the championship game, with UCLA winning. Wishful thinking that if I show UCLA some love, they might return the favor?
