It's March, So Leave Me Alone

For those of you who don't know me personally, I'm going to let you in on one of my secret passions. No, not porn, but one that goes just as well with bourbon.
I love college basketball in March. And I was told by my legal team here at the Hairy Carrot Institute that I can't use the term "March Madness" because some prick somewhere copyrighted it. So, from now on, I will refer to it as "March Insanity". Whatever.
Anyway, my ass has been planted in front of the television for the last week watching various conference championship tournaments. Needless to say, I've been inspired by the wins of schools such as Weber St, Eastern Kentucky, and of course, Niagara. And now these guys get to show what they have when they play the big boys from UCLA, Ohio State and Florida.
And I do want to send a special "shout out" to Sydney Lowe and the rest of the NC State Wolfpack team for taking their rival UNC Tarholes to the wire. Needless to say, the Pack will be even better next year and Lowe has turned around a program that was suffering like a Ann Coulter web sponsor.
So, if you're in town and go to a local sportsbar, just shout "Hey, any of you guys Hairy Carrot?" at the top of your lungs and maybe I'll buy you a beer. Or you can just sit down, shut the hell up and enjoy the games.
