That’s what it is for me. Except for hoping KU wins it all, I just go to a happy place. It’s something that screws up my favorite TV shows. Give me a holler when it’s over, or if KU gets to the final four.
Why not UW? Well, it’s okay with me if UW does well, but I’ve got a long memory. When I was at UW, no football player ever tried to get me to write his paper for him. Basketball players did. Also, when I was at UW, I was never hassled by a football player. I got some from basketball players. So in addition to not liking the sport at all to begin with (everything I was ever good at in sports is a foul in basketball), I didn’t find any passion to care if we won or not. I wouldn’t root against UW, just didn’t much care.
The women are another story. They never asked me to write their papers and they certainly never tried to bully me (and some of them could have…those are some big gals). Go Dawgs!
