I spent $300 ($216 +83 stubhub fees) for my NCAA West Regional in downtown LA last Thursday. Watched my Alma Mater played at 4pm PDT. I couldn't make the second game which was a great game (Alabama over UNC) because I had to take the train back home to my mother, who wakes up around 9pm for dinner. My seats were in the upper 300 level with middle court view. My school lost, but that's good. More time with my mother.
The important thing is you had a good time and you were able to get home to your Mom.

UCONN had a 9-0 lead before Illini scored at the 16:00 mark.
18-13 UCONN very defensive game.

Clemson and Alabama in the NCAA Elite 8? I can't believe these two football schools are playing each other for basketball.

Loyal and Ken, I very much want UCONN to go al the way.
I like their chances. I think what makes them so tough is teams going up against them get so focused on the UConn offense and how to stop them and they forget about the UConn defense. That’s what has won the game for them the last 2. They’ve shot horribly from 3-point range in both games in Boston but won by 30 and 25 because the other team couldn’t score at all for stretches.

So how was the sports bar scene in Boston tonight? UCONN fans who couldn't afford to get into the Boston Garden because it cost like 800 bucks for an upper 300 level seats that have court view?

Your basketball nephew only has to take a subway to the Garden and back.

Fromcal: NC State is 26-14.
1523202: Yep and they are in the Final Four
Fromcal: You used to live in Raleigh, North Carolina.
1523202: Yep.
Fromcal: JIm Valvano (late NC State BB coach who died of cancer years ago) shades of Wolfpack. 1st Final Four since 1983.
1523202: NC State came out of nowhere.
Fromcal: I had no ideal. My NCAA brackets are a bust again.
1523202: You picked James Madison as your Cinderella team.
Fromcal: NC State, UCONN, Purdue and Alabama in the Final Four.
1523202: And you NCAA Final Four picks UCONN, North Carolina, Kansas, and Kentucky works out to only 1 team in, UCONN.
Fromcal: I thought North Carolina would be powerful to get into the Final Four.
152302: Another year, another busted bracket.

Numbers loved this time of year and was a huge fan of March madness.
I remember you talking to him about the brackets.
