Cinderella’s Court

sol #SOL18 Day 17

If you keep believing, the dream that you wish will come true. ~Cinderella

I don’t follow college basketball except what my local Philly teams are doing, but I love watching March Madness.  I am always impressed with the unbridled enthusiasm and determination exhibited by the players on and off the court.  Last night 16 seeded UMBC – University of Maryland-Baltimore County (a school I had never heard of before) defeated number one seeded Virginia.  I have to admit, I am a sucker for a good underdog story (after all my Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl this years!), and I thought it was pretty cool listening to the UMBC players and coach being interviewed after the game. My husband on the other hand was not at all smitten with the Cinderella story. He had Virginia going to the final two facing Villanova, and now his bracket is in bad shape.  I don’t mind if Cinderella advances to the Elite 8, but I am still counting on Villanova to make Nova Nation proud and take us through to the end.

  1. I live in Indiana so basketball is our lifeline in the months of February (high school basketball) and March! I went to Butler so I am always rooting for the Bulldogs! Your husband is not alone! 🙂

  2. I love this quote: “unbridled enthusiasm and determination exhibited by the players on and off the court.” .I grew up going to Providence College basketball games with my family. March Madness has entered our home largely in part because our teenage son is obsessed with all things sports – especially when there’s a lot at stake. He did tell me about last night’s upset, but added that “one” of his brackets is still OK. Thanks for the sports slice!

  4. It’s still the number one sports story a day later and “no time for a cavalier attitude!” For sure, anything can happen! I know the wrestling results. Just not as invested in basketball but I do love when local teams play well! Good Luck!!!
