Basketball Winds Down, Baseball Heats Up!
Hoops winds down_____
The boys basketball season in Ohio ended this past weekend...locally none of the teams brought home a crown...nor did the schools close by, which is a rarity, usually someone comes home with a state title from this area.
And in the NCAA_____
Ohio State by defeating top seeded Syracuse, were joined by Louisville, top ranked Kentucky, and Kansas, in the Final Four at New Orleans next weekend.....despite my penchant to pick at least one underdog to make the finals, in this case Steve Alford's New Mexico Lobos, I got 3 of 4 correct, and have Ohio State vs Kentucky in the finals....putting me ahead of the national idiot, Barack Obama, in the pools.....
Too bad I'm not in any money brackets this year.....because it appears that I could have cashed in....70 thousand or so out of 6 million isn't shabby....
The Week Ahead_____
Looking forward, hopefully I will start to feel closer to 100%, get my voice back...although it appears to be getting better, it is nowhere close to "normal". Basically I will strive to survive the week on the baseball diamond...that is, not screwing up to much, and not getting hit where I can least afford it...The Neck! I also realize that I have to start, because the longer you stay idle, especially at my age(63), the harder it will be to get back into the active lifestyle I enjoy.
When done with this blog this morning, I will do something else I have not done in 10 days....get behind the wheel of the van. My surgeon said at least a week....other sites say 2 or 3 weeks, I will follow my surgeon's advice plus 3 days. So a test drive this morning around town, before making the 40 mile drive each way to Paulding and back this afternoon.
If I survive the drive and the game....I will be...back later>>>>
