Lea in Louisville!
My niece came to visit! She and her parents decided to make the 5.5-hour drive to spend a weekend in the Ville for some NCAA tourney-watching and Lost-board-game-playing. We had boatloads of fun, though the cats were flummoxed.
The results of the tournament were dreadful. All the teams we cared about -- Louisville, Maryland (Paige's and my alma mater) and Virginia (Brian's alma mater) -- had a chance to win or force overtime in the final seconds and didn't.
It was unbelievable. Louisville trailed by one with seven seconds left and missed a three-pointer. Maryland missed a half-court heave that would have tied Butler at the buzzer. Virginia missed a clean look at a three-pointer to tie, also at the buzzer, and Brian had about two minutes to mourn before the family had to hit the road.
But like I said, still a great, relaxing weekend. And Holly gets back from spring break tonight, with stories of her friend's bachelorette extravaganza.
