A Tricia Helfner sort of morning

The Golden Eagles beat Villanova yesterday afternoon to advance to the semi-finals of the Big East Tournament.  I actually remembered to turn the radio on at work to listen to the play-by-play and by all accounts a very good game.  Anonoymous Eagle has your game recap .

Get it done now  – While I know there will be the temptation to plan the weekend around basketball, don’t do it.  Sure, carve out some time to watch the Badgers & Golden Eagles but make an effort to get some early Spring cleaning done, if you have a honey, get that honey-do-list knocked out or take the kids to the park.  I say this because if you slack this weekend you won’t have the goodwill in the bank to really be a slouch next weekend during what is arguebalbly the most entertaining four days of sports in the year, the first weekend of the Tournament.  So unless you have some other procedure scheduled to insure your “me-time” next weekend, take the time this weekend to make next weekend a celebration of brackets, beer and….um….some other word that starts with B.
