Ok, so I had the Cornhuskers winning the tournament, unapologetically, unabashedly, and with a great amount of pride. I am a fan, and they are my team, it is a symbiotic relationship, but I probably get more benefit. But, if the Cornhuskers read blogs it would be more equitable, so it is not all my fault.
But, they got beat today, it was an unfortunate game that took some unexpected twists, and a few tragic turns. Coach Tim Miles was ejected for the first time in his coaching career, but, I won't blame the official, there will be not finger pointing on my blog, a loss is a loss, and you move on.
The referee who called the technical to eject Coach Miles was just a guy doing a job, and is only human, so we are not going to indulge in any childish name calling.
It does bring to mind an old saying from my time in India when I was working for... well I am not really authorized to discuss who I was working for. Anyway, there was an old Punjab saying, "Trust a cobra before you trust a Sikh, trust a Sikh before you trust a Pathan, and trust anybody, anywhere in the world before you trust a truly loathsome bastard like that." My multi-lingual Punjabi is not that good anymore but, it was something like that. Not that I think the official in question is loathsome, or detestable, this was just a coincidence, sometimes thoughts show up, a lot of old people have that problem.
Sorry, I slip into memories, occasionally.
In the wonderful words of the fantastic Bob Dylan;
"I'm not sorry for nothing I've done,
I'm glad I fought I only wish we won."
Anyway, this was a special season to be Cornhusker basketball fan, and next year will be even better. With that in mind I have started filling out my bracket for next seasons tournament already. I am picking Nebraska to win it all. But, I am not too sure who to pick from the south division, any suggestions?

Just wait until next year.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
