Well, this probably means absolutely nothing to you Across the Ponders, here in the states we've just had "March Madness," where 64 college basketball teams vie for the national championship.

After my alma matter, the University of Wisconsin, was ousted by the Kentucky Wildcats on Saturday, they went to the final against the Huskies of the University of Connecticut, where my son is a freshman and is employed by the basketball program as a towel boy/Gunga Din/floor mopper and gets to go to all home games for free.

Needless to say, UConn beat Kentucky last night, making the Huskies the national champions. And tonight, the UConn women's b-ball team, which has been the best women's team for the last decade or so, could bring him their own championship.

Needless to say, my son is in Heaven. He's still out celebrating.

Oooo! Another diary! :D I have all the previous ones, but hardly any room on my bookshelves. To buy or not to buy?

We've turned watching Doctor Who into a little family activity every few evenings or so. The girls were playing with Legos the other day and I went to see what they were making. The Doctor, Rose and the interior of the Tardis. :lol:
