Get ready, I’m about to talk about basketball

16 Mar

So, Duke just lost to Lehigh. And why is this relevant to this blog, other than the fact that it aired on a television? Well, the reason this made me so happy, other than the fact that I love it when Duke loses because it’s Duke, is because that’s where JJ went to college on American Dreams! Before he had to drop out because of his ankle injury that was bad enough to destroy his college football career but not so bad that it kept him out of the Marines or from playing football in the Marines, of course. Anyway, that’s literally the only reason I’d ever heard of Lehigh. Is that sad? I don’t know. But anyway, yay!

I am also glad Duke lost because it means that Mizzou was not the only 2 seed that lost today. Though my happiness at that loss can never, ever match the despair I feel over ours. Maybe if Kansas loses also the combined joy will make it better. But I doubt it. It was heartbreaking. And terrible. And should not have happened. And my newsfeed was full of all sorts of despair and anguish afterwards, so I got even more depressed. Oh, Mizzou. Why must you hurt me so. Guess I’ll just have to root for UNC to win it all now. Sigh.

So, uh, yeah. That’s probably the last time I will ever post about basketball on this blog. So I hope you savor it.

PS, with us and Duke and Michigan all losing, I assume that your bracket, if you made a bracket, was probably completely screwed. So…sorry about that.
