Off to St. Louis to indulge my bassetball jones at the NCAA Women's Final Four--Go Cardinals, Cardinal, Sooners, and Huskies, and all the hoops-hounds making the march to the Arch. And over in the men's bracket in the Motor City, good luck to the Spartans, Huskies (again), Wildcats, and Tarheels. I need help, ladies and gentlemen...I need someone to stand beside me,
I need, I need someone to set a pick for me on the free throw line of life...I need someone to hit the open man on the give-and-go, and not end up in the popcorn machine...So cheerleaders, help me out...
