My son is there. I love “thump thump” the last 2 minutes of the final game. I pull for— well never mind.

Why such a late start? Kids in CT and KY will get to bed way too late.

Watch for Ryan Boatright to put the screws to UK’s guards.

Heres why this household is going for UCONN:

In a moment of inexplicable inattention to standards, UCONN awarded me an MBA.

My wife once lived just down the road from Calipari when he was at UMASS. He was not a good neighbor

My step-daughter graduates from UCONN in May

UCONN is the only school ever to win both men’s and women’s NCAA Div I basketball championships in the same year in 2004. They just might do it again ths year.

Go Huskies!!

Any way they can both lose? Then again; I despise anything from Connecticut.

Kentucky has the raw talent. Five blue chip freshmen.

UConn's Napier has the exspericence.

Many consider Calipari a good recruiter but not a good coach.

I predict UConn by 5.

Can’t a man not enjoy a sporting event and still care and be concern about the direction of the country? Sheesh!!! What if someone told you that whatever YOU enjoy is doing nothing for the betterment of this country? I’ll bet you would get all upset

I just noticed when they go to commercial the score ticker at the bottom of the tv screen enlarges and I don’t need to use the binoculars to read it from my desk across the room.

Speaking of Germany, I didn’t realize that Dirk Nowitzki would have played for UK, if he didn’t go straight into the NBA.

As a New Englander I was cheering for UConn, good for them! Meanwhile Tony Massaroti of Boston’s 98.5 the Sports Hub was cheering for UConn to lose both games:

(CBS Boston):”Marc Bertrand opened the conversation stating how wonderful this tournament has been from start to finish, which led Mazz into a tangent about his hatred for UConn and all things Nutmeg State.
“Just because I’m in New England doesn’t mean I have to root for Connecticut, which isn’t part of New England anyway as we all know. Tonight and tomorrow night I hope Connecticut goes down like a pack of wild boars. I hope they lose both — the men and the women,” said Mazz. “I hope they get smoked by Kentucky in this game.
“I’m not a UConn person. It’s partly the state, it’s partly the school. I’ve got a predisposition against the state to begin with. They allege themselves to be New Englanders but they’re really not. They’re more like New Yorkers, and they’re snobby to begin with....”
