NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2019: Final

I can’t tell you how done I am with NCAA Basketball at this point, even though it’s been a relatively easy year from an assembly standpoint despite the data being the dirtiest I can remember. I am disappointed but not surprised by UConn’s exit, only to whom, and since State’s departure I have little reason to pay any attention at all what with Curling (Sweden over Canada who made some very bad decisions about control of the Hammer) and American Gods. The Metropolitans are but a single game behind the Phillies in the loss column and we have Shanghai coming up Sunday so there’s that.

On the other hand I have also watched the Rhythmic Gymnastics Championship, Team and Individual, and while it’s athletic I’m not sure it qualifies as a sport as the judging is entirely subjective. Give me some Darts or Team Handball please.

Virginia has never won, which is interesting, Texas Tech is an underdog. This information doesn’t make me lean either way.

The puzzle is to decide if I want to get back into Le Tour which is a pain in the ass because it falls during Summer travel season and I spend a lot of time on the road.

Does have a cool song though.
