The Week In Seven Photos

The little chickadee’s eyes may have lit up over the beginning of spring this week, but my eyes lit up knowing it was the beginning of March Madness and one of the greatest sporting events.  Things got off to a rough start during the NCAA March Madness Basketball Selection Show last Sunday when I found out a lifelong favorite team, the Michigan State Spartans, were unjustly placed as a #2 seed in Duke’s region.

My brother called to see how I was handling the Michigan State news and after a rather loud rant that scared the squirrels,

a walk by the lake was required to calm down.

My attitude was improving until I ran into a Duke fan with a definite attitude.

This post was completed before the tip-off of the rock in the first game yesterday at noon,

but hopefully since then none of my Final Four teams have laid an egg 

and that I’ve been savoring multiple basketball games playing nonstop from noon to midnight and celebrating, with a few fist pumps, fantastic games and last second winning shots.

    Another fun collection! Can’t say I follow basketball, but I’ll say “Go, Spartans!” and hope they’re still in it with a long run ahead…
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you and I love the first weekend of March Madness!!😁 Although, tomorrow night could be a little stressful and the squirrels may be frightened again by hopefully more cheering than yelling when four of my teams play in the second round (MSU, Michigan, Villanova and Auburn). Enjoy your weekend!🙂

    Beautiful shots!

    I live with a Duke fan. He was raised in Durham & was in law enforcement there for 13 years. At one time, he & Coach K were on a first name basis.

    I was born & raised in a N.C. State Wolfpack home. My dad graduated from State in 1967.

    Honestly, I don’t know which is worse…Duke attitude or Carolina Tarheel attitude. They both annoy me.

    1. Thank you!🙂 My attitude against Duke and North Carolina formed after many, many, many years of them tormenting my favorite teams. Although, they usually have some great players that I enjoy watching if they are not playing against my teams.😁

        Heh. My attitude formed as a child. All thru school…Carolina fans were awful. Then, Coach K showed up & Duke fans became just as obnoxious.

        As far as I am concerned, there will never be another coach like Jimmy V. When State took the title in 1983, they weren’t annoying. They were grateful.

        After living in Texas for nearly a decade, I learned to loathe Longhorns…them and their stupid bull Bevo. Same smell. Austin is nothing more than a burnt orange Chapel Hill. I had co-workers that were hard to deal with in 2005.

        I pulled for A&M Aggies & Red Raiders for dissent. 😁

      2. I still love seeing the replay of the final seconds of the 1983 Championship and Jimmy V running out onto the court.🙂

        OH, YEAH. He just wanted to hug somebody…anybody. My junior year of high school…
