Thought for the Day

March is the time of year when we are reminded that the predominant religions of Kentucky are Baptist, Catholic, and Basketball.  There appears to be a schism in the Basketball sect, though.  The wearers of the Red and the wearers of the Blue continually debate and argue over the fine details of their chosen faith.

For the next few weeks, what productive behavior that I encounter at work will happen in the break room, where Basketball devotees congregate to attend services each afternoon.

After this most holy of times for Basketball people, behavior will return to almost normal until next fall.  Luckily, once the universities of Louisville and Kentucky lose in the tournament, their fans will come to their senses and return to work.

One of the guys who went to my church in MT was from Nebraska, and he had some pretty wild stories involving college basketball. Like when The Team won some championship or another, and the entire town went into full-on Brazil-Carnival-style celebration. In the newspaper the next day they listed casualties.

LOL- Well, it IS Kentucky... Just sayin...

Yeah, God forbid that either Louisville or Kentucky get into the Final Four or actually win the tournament. In that event I'll be in my house surrounded by guns and canned food waiting for the riots to end.
