How is your Saturday looking at this point? Are you anticipating something enjoyable during this day?
A bit of history here. When I was in elementary school, before middle school was on the scene, our school included grades 1-8. There was a basketball team, and it was announced there would be a tryout scheduled for cheerleaders. It is hard for me to believe this now, but I tried out and was one of four who were selected in the 8th grade. That is what began my interest in basketball, and it has endured through the years.
So - March Madness is a great time of the year! There is an opportunity to see some really good college basketball on TV! It becomes a bit more exciting if the Vols happen to be selected to play in the NCAA tournament. Well, that happened this year! On Wednesday night they won a play-in game with Iowa in Dayton which gave them the opportunity to play in Raleigh yesterday!
Now, I know I'm taking a risk here.:-) It isn't my intention to annoy any of my Massachusetts followers. However, it was very exciting to have the Vols win the game on Friday afternoon! Now they will move on to Sunday when they will play Mercer. Mercer surprised a lot of people on Friday by winning their game with Duke.
You can be sure that I will be paying close attention to that Sunday game!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
I hope you will enjoy watching the games! We have some grass seed to put out and some mulch around the shrubs. It should be a good day to be outdoors to get some tidying up done.ReplyDelete
Enjoy the weekend.
GO VOLS!!! Yes, I remember those days at our elementary school, and those classy blue and white outfits you lovely cheerleaders wore! I also remember some trips to remote areas (or at least they seemed remote to my young self) on school buses to play other teams. Funny thing I can't remember, though, is how well our team played. I do remember a boy who surprised everyone because he was so short! He was one of the highest scorers, as I recall! Have a wonderful day!ReplyDelete

But my love is Louisville and they won today after a rocky first half. I'm with you, watching it all day tomorrow! Good luck to your Vols, Mercer was a surprise!ReplyDelete
I too was a cheerleader and enjoyed basketball ! Mainly our grandchildren...smile.. Enjoy your game!ReplyDelete
I do like basketball, but I am a Vanderbilt fan. If they're not playing my interest really wanes. I guess I'll just have to root for Tennessee the year.ReplyDelete
I don't follow basketball, Nellie, but my SIL does. He is at the Badger game right now! Quite a week for basketball. Hope your team wins! xo DianaReplyDelete
