We won in the first round of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. We beat Tennessee in a last-second thriller, 77-75. The game was in Dayton, Ohio.
Next up, Pittsburgh Panthers. Big East team that is a No. 1 seed. It'll be tough. I'm hoping that my Cowboys still have a little magic left in their pocket. Some of that same magic that they used back in 2004 when the team beat Pitt. Regardless, I hope it was a good game. I hope the Meezers won't hate me if the Cowboys win.
Growing up in the old Big 8 Conference, we were taught to hate the Big 10. OK. Hate is a little strong. We for disliked and didn't root for Big 10 schools. I mean like who would ever root for a Wolverine, Buckeye or Hoosier for example.
Watching Friday night's games, I found myself rooting for the Siena Saints to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes. But I also hoped for Wisconsin to beat Florida State even though Wisconsin is a Big 10 school. Rooting for Badgers I can see.
The teams Gabby (she joined the rootin' as I interrupted her slumber with my hollers) and I were supported won. Both in overtime. One team won in double overtime. Very exciting.
HOWEVER .... I was thinking Saints like angels. I looked them up on the Internet and see that their mascot is a D - O - G. A Saint Bernard.
