Good news and bad news on the March Madness front. Since I tend to be cynical, we’ll start with the bad news first.

My attempts to pin a little financial bonus on the UCLA Bruins were squandered last night, when the blue and gold decided to CHOKE and lose to Florida, 76-66. While the score indicates a relatively close game, it was much uglier than that — which means I now have issues with Gator Corey Brewer (19). He has temporarily taken over the top spot on my “Why do you do this to me?”  list, a position previously held (and sure to be held again) by Theo Epstein.

In good news, however, wine was not involved with my post-defeat mourning period. Which is, um, awfully different from years past (*cough*Arizona losing to Kansas in ’03*cough*).
