spring

 

 

 

Madness anyone? For me March Madness has become a late-onset disease that attack the center focus network.

I had, until this season, spent the last few years immersed in a tidal pool of college hoops, feverishly wondering when the next game was always seeming to find it wasn’t until Thursday and today was always Monday.

This year I’ve lost interest and never updated after sitting down to make my picks.

Well, I’ve learned a new term this year: Chalk.

Meaning your picks are right by the numbers (and likely exactly the same as everyone elses).

When your Sweet 16 is pretty close to the President’s and Mike and Mike’s and the rest of the free world for that matter, it’s hard to stay interested.

Not too much satisfaction comes out of a Sweet 16 that everybody else picked.

When even the ‘upsets’ – anyone say Sienna in an 8 vs. 9 pick ‘em? – aren’t upsetting, at least there’s still the games.

I’ve seen some great play this year and it feeds that jones left over from when Granville ran into BP in sectionals – I was hoping they would have to play another tournament and go for third place, something, and anything for some more hoops.

 

Something has to fill the void until the golf clubs come out, there is, of course, getting in shape for the golf course, but I haven’t gotten there yet and my game will show it and I’ll regret that about the first time a park a drive in the cheap seats because I’m sitting in the back seat on my ninth or tenth drive of the day, lazy from fatigue.

 

Still looking forward to it though…

 

Even after a little setback this week with the colder temps you can feel the sun’s intensity.

 

What else?

 

Oh yeah, still working on making some contacts for that archive effort. Not sure who’s going to step up at the school and take this sizeable bull by the horns, but there is just a monolith of information out there to be pulled in and organized. I really don’t know if anyone else out there has done something like this…going to have to ask around.

 

Baseball

Softball

Track

Tennis

 

Football

Field hockey

Cross country

Soccer boys and girls

Volleyball

 

Wrestling

Basketball boys and girls

Bowling

 

 

 

Met some guys kayaking in the Mettowee on Saturday and spoke to them. They’re talking about trying to organize some sort of River Day/Festival

Interesting idea.

Motivated guys from Green Mountain College, expect more updates here and in the pages of the paper about this one, could be lots of fun…
