March Madness is Here...2013

It begins a week{6 days) later than last year, but March Madness is finally here...something that will fill the final days of Winter{Spring officially begins tomorrow with 29 degrees predicted as a high in Western Ohio} before we final{hopefully} get some warm weather and dry conditions. 

Today we are seeing some sunshine, too bad it is accompanied by strong northwest winds and cold temperatures...40 today, less than 30 for tomorrow are the predictions, with nothing reaching 50 before the first of April....

Back to March Madness:

The "Play~In" games of the lesser ranked teams begins tonight at the University of Dayton...the "winners" of these games become the sacrificial lambs of some of the top seed teams...but hey, at least they are in the the show.  In addition to the first round games, Dayton will also get to host Indiana on Thursday and Ohio State on Friday, if both advance as predicted, the weekend should see full house crowds as well.

This year sees as wide open race to Atlanta as could be predicted...the top seeds, Indiana, Louisville, Gonzaga, and Kansas, are by no means locks to move far in the 68 team field...neither are the 2s, Duke, Ohio State, Georgetown, or Miami....any one of them could be ousted by this weekend's end...and maybe a number of them will be....so with the field wide open, and no clear cut favorite...my Duke Blue Devils are getting no respect, while Ohio State is....I predict both will make it to the Final Four, with OSU topping Duke and Miami to take their first crown in roundball since 1960...but don't make any bets you can't afford on that prediction.

HERE ARE MY BRACKETS AS I SEE THEM SHAKE OUT:


My first baseball scrimmage was cancelled for this afternoon, and that game moved to March 28th...however if any of the six pre-season games get played, especially given the extended forecast, it will be in cold and damp conditions....80 in mid March last year, 30s this year....I'll take the 80s anytime.

One more doctor's appointment tomorrow, really don't even know what that is for...since I had the ultrasound yesterday and a follow up on those tests in Lima on April 5th...but I guess I had is scheduled, so will do that and then head for another rules meeting....today however I will continue to forego the weight lifting for another day to allow my left shoulder and elbow to heal, from whatever the Hell is ailing those apendaages....

back later>>>
