It's been two days of excellent college basketball news:
- My alma mater, Maryland, beat our No. 1-with-a-bullet archenemy Duke by 12 points Sunday night. We're far from a lock for the tournament -- I think we're on the bubble -- but a win over Duke, even a crappier-than-usual Duke, will always stand out on a resume.
- My adopted hometown team, Louisville -- another unranked bunch -- stomped all over fifth-ranked Pittsburgh on the road tonight. Thanks to Marty Schottenheimer getting canned in San Diego, it was only the second-shockingest sports development of the night, but it was a huge boost to the locals.
In other news, Holly and I are road-tripping to southwestern Virginia to help my sister, brother-in-law and baby niece move into their new digs. My parents will be there too, and I haven't seen any of them since Christmas, so I'm very excited.
Supposed to be some winter-mixy precipitation on Tuesday, but local weather dudes have been pretty off the mark of late, so I'll believe it when I see it.
