For those of you seeking the link for the Power Point files, it is coming soon. Some urgent business has kept me occupied for the last two weeks. This is the first chance I have had to manage my blogs.
Of course, my first business on-line was to create a Yahoo NCAA Basketball Tournament Pick website. I am pleased to see my friends and family add their picks to "Benjamin's NCAA World." You might also be able to check them out here.
I sat down with my sons last night and let them make their tourney picks for the first time. My eldest child, Wyatt (age 11 soon to be 12), was methodical and mathematical in his choices. He paid attention to the seeds and the records of each team. On a few occasions we even compared the conferences of the teams.
However, my younger son, (Ethan) age 7, was motivated by pure emotion and enthusiasm. I am sure most of us would pick Memphis over ORU, but what you don't know is that a Golden Eagle is a better fighter than a Tiger. And there are plenty of Wildcats in this tourney and Wildcats always rule because our pet cat likes Wildcats and that's what he would pick. Of course if a Wildcat takes on a dragon (i.e. a Blazer) then the dragon wins. Of course the best team is the Huskies. Unfortunately for Washington it isn't their Husky. Rather, it is U Conn's Husky that wins out because it a fuzzy husky. And the fuzzy husky is going all the way to the semi-finals. And I think the fuzzy husky would win the tournament except for the fact that that honor is reserved for the Razorback Hog. And the reasons for that are just obvious.
If Ethan's bracket proves to be the winning choice then mine is completely wrong. Nevertheless I would enjoy it all and say Hooray for the Fuzzy Husky and Woo Pig Sooie!
