My head hurts this morning.
John Wayne once said that every young man needs to let the badger loose every once in a while. Yesterday I let the badger loose.
I had the chance to watch the games at the DCU Center in Worcester but I met up with friends I hadn't seen in a long time and the next thing I knew I was barking at the moon and later sleeping on the couch.
NCAA Brackets - Many people are pretty ticked off at Syracuse today. I'm ambivalent about them. On the one hand - I loaded up on them figuring they would cover 9 points easy. On the other had - if I'm going to lose my bet I'd just as soon they lost too.
Its pretty much a sure thng that nobody has gotten all the games right so far. Who could have foreseen Vermont and Bucknell? I had Syracuse in my Final Four. Now the people who picked Duke are pretty pleased with themselves (as people who favor Duke tend to be anyway).
The players at Holy Cross must be pretty ticked off at themselves. They were a better team than Bucknell but played an awful first half in the Patriot League Championship game.
Val Kilmer and Kevin Spacey - you may have seen this article about Val Kilmer being nice to a guy who approached him at a urinal in England.
What I thought was noteworthy in the article was the fact that Kilmer was in the restaurant with Kevin Spacey. Those two grew up together but later Kilmer claimed that Spacey scammed Kilmer's dad out of some serious cash and that Kilmer was still pissed off about it. Well if they were at dinner together I guess Spacey must have paid back the cash and apologized.
Walter Matthau - I saw the movie Charley Varrick on TCM Thursday night. An excellent movie. I know I did a Top 5 - Walter Matthau movies before but after seeing Charlie Varrick that list needs revising:
Top 5 - Walter Matthau Movies
1. The Odd Couple
2. The Bad News Bears
3. Charlie Varrick
5. (tie) Grumpy Old Men (tie) The Front Page
Well that's it for this morning. I'm off to Dunkin Donuts for some coffee and then off to the Post Office to weigh my son's Pinewood Derby car. The race is tonight - so wish him luck.
