Round of 16 Part 1

When last we listened to men in squeeky shoes it was a night of upsets with half the contests going against the seeded teams.  The severe underdog triumphs were Virginia Commonwealth, Marquette, and Florida State but Arizona also won against form.

Ah, it seems like yesterday but it was actually the day before that and it was women.  As I said before it’s time to root for those you hate less, not many underdogs today except for Butler and Arizona.

As the top Google Blogger reports, the lyrics are “deeply stupid” and it’s hard to admit that as a member of the Marching Band I was required to memorize them and sing them a cappella at each home game.

Of course I was heavily medicated at the time.
