Therapy ~ Bring It On

We are waist deep in March Madness. I have a new theory. The name "March Madness" refers to the insanity of so many games in so little time, as well as the frustration that consumes a person as their brackets begin to resemble target practice at close proximity.

It is also my belief that the Ides of March came late this year; instead of the annual date of March 15th when a disbelieving Caesar was assassinated (stabbed to death in the senate) by 60 co-conspirators, it came during March when a disbelieving nation watched UNI beat Kansas.

I've decided to use my brackets as floor mats in my car; I'll get more use out of them.

I still have 3 teams in the final four, so we'll see how it goes.

I did wonder why it was called March Madness!
We (I mean the entire population of the UK) are gearing up for the World Cup (soccer) in June/July.
I have booked my holiday in Ibiza making sure I have access to a bar with a large screen!!

That's wonderful Minx!! Certain sports are well worth the time and excitement invested in them.

I love that you are traveling as much as you are. Fantastic!

I'm not a basketball fan myself, so I'll ignore this post, and just say hi anyway. :) I thought the Ides of March came appropriately this year on the first Monday after the time change. THAT was painful. Not as painful as betrayal and being stabbed, but painful nonetheless.

Hello lady!

...OY, so true. SOOOO true.

But spring is rumored to have arrived, so that's making things easier, yes?
