One of the few remnants I carry of having grown-up in Connecticut is the fact that I root for the UCONN Huskies basketball team, so I’d be remiss to fail to mention that they’re on their way to the Final Four this year.  In fact, I had an unusually decent year in my own informal bracket (I don’t play any organized bets or competition, just fill one out and see how I do), so far going 46-14 (.767) through the 60 games played so far.  I also have UCONN meeting UNC in the finals, though I figured it would be Louisville and Pittsburgh rounding out the last two games before the Championship (and in both instances I’m glad I was wrong).  And by the way, that’ll be UCONN over the Tar Heels for the Championship, 76-73 or something like that.
