Two very important and satisfying things happened today. The NCAA tournament ended, and the Cubs season began.
I'm sorry. I know it's heresy for an Indiana guy to not love college basketball. But I've tried. Really. I'm sure it's because I'm not savvy to something about the game, but I can't get into basketball. Scoring seems insignificant. And I hate watching indoor sports.
I need to be a little delicate here; my boss, Butch Whitmire, is an MSU alum and avid fan. Sorry for the loss, Butch. But for a guy who doesn't like basketball, March can be a real pain. It's on in every restaurant and bar and it's the only thing your buddies want to watch. So today was a special day.
But the real gem today was Cubs baseball firing back up (with a win). It testifies that summer's almost here, in spite of all that white stuff that fell last night. I'm feeling a trip to Chicago soon, just to get into the spirit.
Here's to summer (for those of us who still believe it'll eventually come).
