No. 1

sorry no pic!

HOLY COW! Those of you who know me or read here regularly, know I am a huge UK basketball fan. I am not one of those fairweathered-like them because they are number 1- fans, I am a UK alum, proudly. With all these sickos at my house, I haven't had time to talk about March Madness, my favorite time of the year, but I have been enjoying all the games and the hoopla, get it "hoop"la, I'm such a dork! I am so excited they won the championship last night. It was terrific. I have no nails left, despite their lead the whole game, UK fans like blowouts, we like to kill the other team. I hate nailbiters. Anyway, I am as keyed up as I could ever be and I didn't drink anything but water throughout the game! I didn't sleep a wink, I was a facebooking maniac, liking everyone of my UK friend's posts. It was like being in Lexington again. I am so proud of the team, the coaches, the whole darn school. I was at UK for a championship game win (and loss, I still hate Christian Laettner and Duke, that shot they show every year, of the last second win, hate it, hate it, hate it) and it is the best feeling in the world. The whole school celebrates, comes together, sings the fight songs and takes it to the streets. It is magical. I am so glad the UK students will have those memories. They are priceless.

I have kids home for spring break this week. No plans and only one sick person at home. I think this might be a relaxing week. :) I hope we can just catch up and just rest and maybe go to the park?

Take care, and GO CATS!!!!!!

Yay for Kentucky! How exciting it must have been to be a part of that school's team spirit! I will never forget the game against Duke either....I have always disliked Duke!
Enjoy your spring break!

We have WILD CAT fans in our family as well. They are so proud of the team and I think I got to hear about the entire game through facebook status and didn't miss a thing not having a tv! giggle!
