Good morning, basketball fans! And an especially good morning to our East Coast readers, who I applaud for your dedication to the game.
For those who didn’t tune in, the NCAA Championship Game, which already had the disadvantage of being on a Monday night, started at 9:20 eastern.
And to everyone who stayed up to watch it, I applaud you.
So while I am still not ready to talk about Gryffindor’s elimination from the tournament…
…my one small consolation is that I did not have to stay up to watch the final game. That’s right, I (and my once glorious bracket) went to bed early.
I’m not bitter, I’m well-rested.
So congratulations, Villanova, on your second national championship in three years. I hope victory hasn’t yet lost its thrill.
