Lazy Weekend Music: March Madness
Posted March 19, 2016on:
Well, Widdershins, we’ve made it through another week. This one began with much whispering about what Hillary would do if she suffered another “crushing” loss (of less than 2 points?) to Bernie Sanders. Bill Curry busied himself writing article after article for Politico during which he huffs, puffs, and “catastrophizes” her (less than 2 point) Michigan loss into a total wipeout. Bill has been quiet the past few days, but I’m fairly certain he’ll be back in a big way following Bernie’s first caucus victory. He is undoubtedly putting this time to good use by mathematically calculating the delegates necessary for the convention to “feel the Bern”.
Back here in the less alternate reality, Florida, North Carolina, and Ohio fell to Hillary Clinton in a big way, with Illinois following along. Finally, the hair’s breadth difference in Missouri has been awarded to her as well, depriving the Sanders campaign of even a moral victory. The stretch next week will be less certain for her, although initial polling in Arizona looks good. After that is a stretch of states will little or no diversity, and that may very well give Bernie a boost. We wait, we see.
My fellow Floridian S/M proposed the “Rebel Girl” video as the inspiration for this week’s LW post. It will be the lead vid, followed by anything that find inspirational about her stated in a title. To wit: strong, calm, etc. Give it a whirl, it’s easier than you think.
Also the actual March Madness basketball games are going forward as well. I like basketball, but really the only time I pay attention is during tournaments. There are way too many games for me to even try to keep up, so I don’t even try. Further, men’s bball at my alma has a reasonable dismal history. We have retired exactly one jersey – Dominique Wilkins – in the entire history of UGA men’s basketball. We had a better year than usual, and are going to the NIT. For the Big Dance, I will watch UM men and UGA women.
Tomorrow I sail off on a week-long cruise to the Western Carribean, so fussing over voting is yours until I get back last Easter Sunday night.
This is an open thread – peace. out.
