Right now, NCAA March Madness is everywhere. Everywhere, that is, except my living room.
Seems like everyone and their mother is doing a bracket. I went to look it up on cbssports.com, not because I was interested in creating one, but because I wanted to see if my alma mater (Syracuse) was in the playoffs. I am a lousy alum, by the way.
This is how clueless I am about NCAA brackets. To find my school, I first checked in the northeast quadrant of the bracket. Because Syracuse is in the northeast part of the country. Logical, right? Wrong. I couldn't find it. So I checked the other quadrants, just in case. I finally found 'Cuse in the southwest quadrant. Huh???
Where am I going with all this? Well, thanks to March Madness, CBS preempted Survivor last night. This was the first Thursday since the premiere that a) I was actually home to watch it and b) it did not conflict with an American Idol results show. I was really excited to see Survivor live. Especially because a couple of weeks back, I found out Cirie got kicked off before I got to see the episode. Gah.
In the end, I had a very enjoyable evening with my cat, a bowl of penne tossed with olive oil and garlic salt and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, and the ladies of The View (the fiancé was at a lab meeting). But still, I missed Survivor. And there's not going to be a new episode until next Wednesday.
I guess in the meantime, I'll actually watch some basketball. Syracuse plays Vermont at 9PM tonight. Go Orange!!!
By the way, that's a picture of our mascot, Otto the Orange. Yes, an orange.
