BRACKET! School Dazed

March 21, 2007

-Young male students pass my office, expounding on Bruce Pearl’s coaching skills, arguing whether Kansas can beat Florida

-The basketball courts at the downtown YMCA have been very busy at lunch time, echoing with the sounds of sneakers worn by men who have little islands of skin showing among the grey hair on their head. As they launch threes and crash the boards, I get the suspicion that the NCAA tournament has inspired them to reclaim their youth.

-At a gathering of people sponsored by the Vanderbilt US-Japan Center, the director of the center sported a white Vandy terrycloth headband with his suit.  I think he knew less about college hoops than the women to whom he was attempting to explain the tournament.

-The few men in my office spent most of the day last Thursday and Friday refreshing the scoreboard.
