I don't really follow sports that much.
I'm definitely guilty of being a 'fair weather' fan more than anything.
Sure, I jumped on the Red Sox band wagon last October when they won the World Series. I like to see a good tennis match.....and I'll follow the Olympics in Beijing.
So, when the whole NCAA Men's Basketball March Madness sweeps the nation every year I tend to ignore, unless my Alma mater is favored.
Then, I suddenly get all interested and follow along.
But, I can never actually watch a basketball game simply because my mom and I have this deeply rooted belief and superstition that whenever we watch KU Men's basketball play they will most definitely lose the game.
So, I didn't watch the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship Finals last night.
I did watch the beginning when all the players were announced.
I learned that KU has a kid from Anchorage, Alaska and a kid from New York City, NY.
I saw the team mascot jump around and felt a little nostalgic.....Even my kids noticed the headlines on the Sports section....little, budding sports fanatics that they are....and never have I wanted to send them both to school donned in some KU t-shirt, ball-cap or sweater but since we don't own any I painted their faces instead.
