Louisville-Wow!

The sun is back, and it’s shining especially brightly on the Louisville Cardinals – heading to their first Final Four after shocking Maryland last night with a decisive win.  Angel McCoughtry, Deseree Byrd, and Concord’s own Becky Bonner will all be in St. Louis this weekend … and we wish them all the best of luck (even though I haven’t yet found anyone in our pool who’s got them going beyond the final four).  I know I’ll be rooting for ’em!

Meanwhile, Jayne Appel’s 46 points were nearly enough to single-handedly win the game, as she led Stanford over Iowa State and into the Final Four.  Tonight the rest of the field will be decided.

Here’s where we stand this morning – with kudos to Jeff, ML (er Don), Cynthia, Murray, Gary, and Pippa who picked Louisville!  (Oh, and sorry Beeg!)

    Wow – that’s great! Another pool-member (bentwisle) will also be there. I LOVED Angel’s shout out to Obama (and to Kara, too). Bet he’s sorry now, that he didn’t fill out his women’s bracket! I hope you have a great time out there with your family … and it’s a fantastic final four. (I’m loving it that Purdue is up at the half … but it’s way past my bedtime.) 😉

    While I am sucking big time in the pool, I too will be in St. Louis this weekend, along with Coach Mom (who is torn between rooting for Stanford and Uconn, assuming they win tonight), my brother, my sister, and 3 nephews. We’re a women’s basketball family! I’m going to wear my Shepard Fairey/Obama t-shirt to Louisville’s game in honor of Angel’s shout-out to the new Prez.
