That’s West by, uh, G-d Virginia!  Fortunately for me, my parents met there.

My daughter went to Butler.  It is a really great school. They have been underestimated and under seeded by the NCAA Selection Committee for as long as we have been associated with them. The Committee’s own numbers said Butler should have been a 2 or 3 seed but they were a 5.  This proves they should have been a 2 or 3 to begin with. I hate to be cynical, but its all about money.  They are incredibly biased toward the NBA farm tema factories. And, no one will buy a Butler tee shirt outside of Indianapolis and the NCAA won’t get any royalties. I hope they win the national title as a thumb to the nose at the NCAA.  Go Hickory Huskers! BTW—I AM wearing my Butler shirt at work today.

I say, Duke is due to win again.  And they have Coach K.  Nuff said.

But who would’ve ever predicted this Final Four?  It’s wild.  Truly, anything can happen in a single elimination tournament like this.

As George Mason University season ticket holders, we’ll be driving to Indy to attend the games and root for Butler, which is the closest of the four to GMU! 

And since the Butler campus is only 6 miles from the tournament site, the city of Indianapolis has got to be going nuts!
