Well, here we are. Just a week away from nirvana. Opening day for the Cubs AND the NCAA basketball championship.
As the nomadic/pirate t-shirt vendors set up and hawk their wares on cheap folding tables under ratty rain awnings near the MSU campus, let's enjoy the moment and look back- while looking ahead as well.
How did your Final Four predictions hold up? I was 1 for four. Can you guess which team I picked correctly? Here's a hint: Kentucky, Baylor and Kansas State didn't hold up. I wonder who did? Hmmmm.
Who do you think will win the title?
And most importantly, how will the CUBS do in 2010? Is THIS finally the year?
