Briefly. (Have to get to the beach, you know)

Fun fact: A majority of archeologists are women due to their natural ability to dig up the past.

Trivia #1: What was the first school to have 20 Final Four appearances? – North Carolina, Gonzaga, UCLA, Kentucky, Duke, San Francisco, Northern Essex Community College
Trivia #2: What player holds the NCAA men’s tournament record for scoring in a single game? – Elvin Hayes, Bill Bradley, Michael Jordan, Austin Carr, Christian Laettner, Lew Alcindor

Research kills cancer.

Article I’ll skip: “As Saint Peter’s readies for Sweet 16, sport psychologist reveals why fans are rooting for the Peacocks” – Let me summarize the article that I didn’t read. People are rooting for the Peacocks because a) they are a 15 seed and b) they knocked off Kentucky.

The Providence Friars men’s basketball team traveled to Chicago for their Sweet 16 matchup with Kansas in the New England Patriot’s team jet. Cool for them.

I was on a hike and saw a sign that read “such-n-such – 6/10’s miles.” Being the wise-ass that I am, I said to my wife; “why don’t they just say 3/5’s miles?” Being the math teacher that she is, Kathy responded; “Because most people wouldn’t understand 3/5’s.” After a brief discussion we both realized that, unfortunately, she was probably correct.

The NFL’s AFC continues to get better. Yes, Tyreek Hill is still in the conference but now bolstering the Miami Dolphins offense. Along with Jaylen Waddle, Tua Tagovailoa (sp? – who cares) now has two legitimate weapons. I’m not sure if the Patriots signing of Malcolm Butler cures this dilemma…

Best T-shirt seen recently, on an 80-something year old guy: “It’s not a bald spot, it’s a solar panel for a sex machine.”

Useless information supposed to fire my imagination: LeBron James is the 6th player with three or more triple-doubles against his former team. Useless information.

The Boston Celtics continue to roll. Do you believe?

This week’s sign of the apocalypse: Article title: Virginia judge says parents of 12 immunocompromised kids can ask schools to require masks.

Trivia #2 answer: What player holds the NCAA men’s tournament record for scoring in a single game? – Elvin Hayes, Bill Bradley, Michael Jordan, Austin Carr, Christian Laettner, Lew Alcindor – Austin Carr, Notre Dame (61 vs. Ohio in 1970)

Have a crazy good day!

Happy National Lobster Newburg Day!

Be careful out there. (It’s a jungle!)

“Doctor, my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor, my eyes
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise to leave them open for so long”

– Jackson Browne
