I’m going to make a confession here. I don’t watch basketball. Whew! Last week, I’d have said that wasn’t any big thing to admit to. But my father’s been in the hospital for a few days with some issues, and March Madness is in full swing.
He’s had the tv tuned to all the games. Of course, our local University of Washington Huskies made it to the final 32 before getting booted out by UNC. If Dad doesn’t have the game on, his nurses change it to the game for him (with his permission). Several of them stop in during the games to check the score.
I went by the reception desk in the hospital lobby and the two women there were discussing the teams. And out at valet, one of the kids had his phone set up for a live stream of a game.
Where have I been that I did not realize just how crazy people are over college basketball? I mean, I’ve heard of March Madness. Who hasn’t? But until I saw it in action, I had no idea how big it really was here in the states.
Do you follow the games? Do you like basketball? Are you rooting for any of the final 16 teams?
On a side note, winter is OVER! Spring is here and even though it’s raining out, it FEELS like spring. I am SO ready! Oh, and my father is doing better. Hopes to go home from the hospital in a day or two. 🙂
