Unfortunately, I cannot be objective this year during March Madness. I know that it is going to be harmful to my bracket picks, because no matter how poorly North Carolina played during the ACC tournament, I have to have them winning it all. This year it could be feasible, that is, if they play up to their potential. So my brackets all depend on the success of my Tarheels. And I am quite nervous about their chances.
These past few weeks have been all about basketball, and that is not such a good thing. DJ and I do not like the same basketball teams, and so that is a problem, even though it is a silly arguing over something so insignificant. Why do sports engender such emotion?
Other than watching basketball, my life has been pretty routine. Today I had to deal with the fact that there were no East Side subways running. So, it took me a long time to get to work; the bus ride across town to catch a West side train was quite painful. Then I have to come to work and deal with the incompetence of the Department of Probation and how they single-handedly seem to screw up every case that I have going for me in court.
It is days like this when I can’t wait to get out of this dirty, inefficient, crowded city.
