The boys went to the games in Buffalo on Thursday, and after a sweaty first half for 'Nova (Sam's favorite team), a great time was had by all.
We got our brackets in too, and that was a little rough on me because some of the people who entered their brackets decided that I would cover their entrance fee.
(Sam, Jake, Quinn, Johnny and Kathy felt that I would like to assist them with their entries).
I didn't get to see a lot of the Thursday games, but there was a buzz around our home:
Jake had 16 picks correct...
...out of 16.
"I did an answer key for the rest of you idiots," he texted me.
Yet, I know my son.
"You do realize that you will miss a couple tomorrow," I said.
"Why do I have to?" He asked.
Because it's March Madness!!
The end came in late afternoon on Friday.
Michigan won a thriller of a game 92-91 to end Jake's dream of perfection.
(He finished 28-4 in the first round).
And through it all, on Friday night, Sam controlled the remote so that we didn't see any commercials or miss a single dribble).
"The first day is better than Christmas," Sam said.
And it is approaching that level for me...
...because it's almost as expensive!
I was just a few points off the lead in the bracket pool.
If there's a god of college hoops...
...I'll get my entry fees back.
