I still believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny

Wow! Villanova made the NCAA Tournament! WOO HOO! WOO HOO! WOO-

Who are they playing? Clemson? CLEMSON?!?

Didn't they just lose on a last-second shot to the #1 team in the country? I guess that means they're pretty good, hunh?

Crap. Looks like 1 and done for our favorite #12 seed.

(To my mind only Dayton has a legit beef as a should-a been in. If they'd beaten Xavier in the A-10 tourney, they'd have probably made it; unfortunately, injuries to their big men early in the A-10 league schedule did them in.)

Oh, this week I'm sure we'll be treated to the high-pitched whine from the All-Cash Conference about how Va Tech should've been in, that Villanova doesn't deserve it, blah blah blah. And that whining will certainly peak if Villanova loses - especially if they get blown out. And since the club has been Jeckyll and Hyde again (meaning we don't know which team will show up on a given night), that's entirely possible.

We got one thing going for us, though - playing on Good Friday. Do you really want to play a Catholic school on Good Friday? That's when the magic started.

I picked Villanova into the sweet 16.

Of course, I know nothing about basketball. So there's that.
