Briefly. (very)

Real baseball, next week.

Trivia #1: What school has never qualified for the men’s Final Four as an 11 seed: LSU, Gonzaga, George Mason, VCU?

Trivia #2: Easy for some, never for others. Who is Richard Starkey?

Useless information (headline) supposed to fire my imagination: “Why you microwave popcorn this side up”

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Self-Driving Uber Kills Woman Crossing an Arizona Street

I know I’m not the only one who finds it ironic that Toys R Us founder, Charles Lazarus, died just one week after the toy store giant filed for bankruptcy.

The Bruins can win it with Tuukka.

Melt.

Quote of the week: “It’s unbelievable, just sickening.” – Scott Lake, a horse trainer at Parx race track in Bensalem, PA, after renowned jockey Jose Flores died after he went flying from his horse and landed on his head during a race at the park on Thursday. Flores’ career spanned three decades with over 4,600 wins.

A British moviegoer has died after a freak accident at Vue Cinema in Birmingham when his head became wedged under the electric footrest of a reclining “Gold Class” seat. The man, who was at the cinema with his partner, was trying to retrieve a phone he had dropped between the seats. Trying to retrieve a phone he dropped. Ya, right!

I felt this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament was up for grabs and still took many top seeds in my bracket. Dope. (What a tournament though!)

Of the 132 Final Four teams since 1991, just 13 (9.8 percent) have been seeded seventh or worse. Last night two 9’s and an 11 won and qualified for the Elite 8.

Sorry to you NAZCAR fans but if I go for a jog/run, I am participating in a sport. It doesn’t matter how fast or far I go, running is a sport. Don’t tell me when I drive to work that I am participating in a sport.

Ozzy Osbourne, when incorrectly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1992, announced his first ‘No More Tours’ tour. It never happened. Now comes his farewell tour, ‘No More Tours 2’ starting next month. The world tour is set to end in 2020. (He’ll be at the Xfinity Center this Sept 6 if you’re interested)

Trivia #1 answer: Gonzaga

Trivia #2 answer: Richard Starkey is recently knighted Ringo Starr

“For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you’ll see
Is all your life will ever be

That’s all I’ve got.
