Last night was the end of the long road to the final game of college basketball in my beloved March Madness.* And it kept me on the edge of my seat (okay, I’m lying, I was jumping up and down screaming at the television for all of it). But my adopted Butler Bulldogs lost to Duke 61-59 in a real heartbreaker. So, so close.
The really bad news is, besides college basketball being over until November,** I now have to get back to reality. I hate when that happens.
*While watching the game last night, I realized that 30 years ago I was in Indy at the Final Four when Louisville and the Doctors of Dunk beat UCLA 59-54 to win their first National Championship.
**Basketball is never over with ESPN Classic.
