We are taking a little break here from the usual entry format so we could be sure to cover some March Madness! I decided to pay a little homage to the University of Illinois as we have a lot of family history there. My father attended the Circle Campus in Chicago, Sweetie’s padrinos attended the Champaign-Urbana campus for their undergrad and post-grad programs, and Wife’s law degree is from the U of I Law School also in Champaign-Urbana. So we wanted to show our support to the University of Illinois as they make their bid. At the time of this writing, the University of Illinois men won their first game and are set to play again today (I learned that from Wife and Micomadre).
Okay, I learned that from Wife and Micomadre. See, I don’t really know what March Madness is all about. I know it has to do with college basketball, but that is about as far as I get. Anyone who grew up with me has fond memories of watching my chubby childhood self “dribble” a basketball – with two hands. Needless to say, there were not too many cool basketball players that were shorter, chubby, thick glasses wearing, and slightly un-coordinated. Man, thank goodness for puberty!
All thanks to Micompadre and Micomadre for the outfit though, Sweetie does look super cute. At the very least I got some cute pictures of Sweetie up and I can probably milk the March Madness distraction as an excuse for not getting more posts published! Well, here’s to whatever your “March Madness” brings!
