Time to give a holla back to Ye Olde Home Team.
My NCAA March Madness brackets have pretty much fallen apart, what with Texas, Vandy, Georgetown, Minnesota & Temple losing in the first round. But the 4th-seeded University of Wisconsin, home to Bucky Badger & Ella Numera Una, hung on to win a squeaker yesterday, getting by Wofford (a Number 13 seed) by 4 measly points.
Well, a win is a win, correctamundo? And the Badgers lived to play another day. In fact, they'll face Cornell tomorrow.
I snagged this snap in 1997, when Wisconsin lost, big-time, to Syracuse up at the Meadowlands. But that was football. And we had fun anyway, watching Ella Numera Dos teach the Wisconsin Band a thing or 2 about the Chicken Dance. You know, the Upper Midwest. Home to brats, beer & boys who dance the polka.
Bigtime college basketball fan here. All I gotta say today is:
On, Wisconsin! Beat up on Cornell!!
