NCAA Basketball!

Have you been tuning in? Some good games recently. Saw a great game last night between Wake Forest and St. Joseph's. Right to the wire. The one thing I notice about really good teams, that I certainly didn't notice about my school (Indiana) this year, is that players on good teams know how to move without the ball. No one just standing around - these guys are constant motion, looking for the quick advantage. I can't figure out how coaches of teams that just aren't cutting it, can't see this. It's all so obvious :)

Duke/Illinois and Texas/Xavier should both be great games tonight. Better tune in!

Word of the Day
pulchritude (PUL-kruh-tood)That quality of appearance which pleases the eye; beauty; comeliness; grace; loveliness. (Pulchritude comes from Latin pulchritudo, from pulcher, "beautiful." The adjective form is pulchritudinous) Usage: "Where Linda has her infectious charm, Polly has only her empty pulchritude"

(hardly a word that comes to mind when thinking of beauty and loveliness, is it? - you would almost guess it means something foul smelling - like putrid. LOL)

Hot oven shoots woman

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - A woman heating fish fingers has been shot in the leg by a gun that had been stashed in her oven, police say. Roxanne Perez, 29, from Texas, was taken to hospital on Friday where she was in good condition, they said. An acquaintance stored the gun for safekeeping in the bottom drawer of Perez's oven about two weeks ago, then "completely forgot about it" according to a police report.

Perez, who said had no idea a gun was in the oven, said she heard several shots then felt a sharp pain in her left hip.
