All UConn grads raise your hands!
Isn't this just the best time of year?
Yesterday was baseball's Opening Day which is, truly, one of the best days of the year. A National Holiday, some would argue. The long, cold, snowy, mean winter is behind us and the halycon days of the summer and the beach and the sun and baseball are ahead. Plus, there's bunting.
But, frankly, I'm still firmly in the college hoops mode.
Our teams -- Connecticut's own Huskies -- the men and the women -- are in the Final Four this weekend. Talk about March Madness.
|That's right: The Final Four.|
And while we're all looking towards the sultry days of summer baseball fun, I'm entirely in the moment with these UConn basketball teams.
No, we weren't in Anaheim to watch UConn beat Arizona on Saturday night, but we did the next best thing: we watched the game on The Dowd's gigantic TV.
After the men's Saturday night win, the UConn women won their game on Sunday at noon to get to the Elite Eight -- which then led them directly to the Final Four. Naturally, we took a stroll to the beach
That's us signaling "Four" for Final Four.
And that's us trying to figure out how to signal "F" for "Final". Sigh.
