As you've likely noticed by now, all three of us are sports nuts. Let me begin by congratulating my fellow bloggers for their Vanderbilt Commodores reaching the Sweet 16; their win against Washington State yesterday was one of the better tourney games. On the contrary, I'm feeling a little blue tonight after my beloved Kentucky Wildcats were sent home from the NCAA tournament this afternoon by a far superior Kansas team. It's not that I expected to win really; UK hadn't played well enough all year to give me any hope they could put together the perfect 40 minutes necessary to upset the Jayhawks. I am more blue with the state of Kentucky basketball at this time as we're currently no longer elite, simply decent. Nine years since our last Final 4 (our longest stretch in history) and next year will likely be worst. Sigh.....
At least we still have Ashley
I figured I oughta post a few songs to reflect my mood....and of course The Jayhawk's Blue would've been a great place to start, but I don't have the music in front of me. These other tracks will have to illustrate my current mood and this weekend in general...
Dwight Yoakam -- This Drinkin' Will Kill Me
Deadstring Brothers -- Talkin' Born Blues
The Bottle Rockets -- Feeling Down
On a more exciting note and as my fellow bloggers have pointed out, baseball season is here and with that, I can slip into my favorite Cardinals' attire and be myself once again. Look for me at a ballpark near you very soon and to all you Cubs' fans out there, I say "Get a brain, MORANS!"
