So, it’s March again. Let’s see, daylight savings time begins. And there’s Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Ides of March (poor Julius), Passover, Palm Sunday and oh yes, basketball.
For many years, I lived in ACC Country, so I am partial to that conference. (When I was a resident of the Research Triangle, UNC played in the NCAA Tournament, not as a #4 seed in the NIT – yikes!)
When my children were small, I took them to a Duke basketball game. Every time the opposing team scored, my younger son would cheer. When he was asked why he was cheering for the other team, he explained in his three-year-old logic that when they scored, Duke got the ball back. Makes perfect sense to me! (#1 seed in the South)
For those of you who know about my ashtray collection, I actually have a metal ashtray with the signatures of the Louisville Cardinals, 1980 NCAA Basketball Champions. (#9 seed in the South.)
I have 52 university ashtrays, including a cast aluminum figural Ohio State University Stadium ashtray from 1972, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the stadium, and 20 college ashtrays. (#2 seed in the Midwest)
I am sure that you will be pleased to know that you can “basketball theme” both your child and your dog.
May you enjoy March Madness, and may your team score the first touchdown!
