Quite Observant

NCAA basketball, specifically the BIG 12. I am excited!

Having gone cold turkey on all but the most benign of the many gut wrenching sports I used to follow, college hoops is now more than enough.

No more Giants, Jets or Chiefs. NO KNICKS! No Yankees, Sox or Royals…my heart couldn’t take it and it was a huge waste of time and energy.

What is left is Kansas Jayhawks basketball and March Madness. The one team and the one time of year I can share a sports passion with my partner. As she and her family attended KU she is a willing participant. The fact that the other side of my family all went to MU is “irrelevant”.

After tonight (KU at West Virginia) much will be revealed.
