B-Dubs day three

I didn’t get back to the Overland Park Marriott until this morning. By time I parked and took the elevator to the 11th floor, it was 12:15. I finally wound down at 1:05 and got some sleep.

It took me until 8:15 to finally get up and get going for good. I got some of my many Buffalo Wild Wings surveys done so I can get my discounts, and finally left the room at 10:05. I forgot my cell phone in my room, so I pulled into the circle drive and went back up to get it. The bad news: that’s what happens when your room is on the 11th floor. The good news: at least I was near the elevator. Took three minutes. 

Made a stop at Lukas Liquors again. Since I got Lisa, LIz and Alex Abita beer yesteray, I figured I needed to get something for Brittany. Since she is not drinking beer as part of her diet, I got her two bottles of wine, one white and one red from Italy. I ddin’t go expensive, but I didn’t go cheap, either. $54 for two bottles I figured was a happy medium. 

I thought about French wine, but I chose Italian in honor of my friend Charles “Pokey” Pocorello, who owns the Italian delicastessen in Baton Rouge from where I co-hosted Jimmy Ott’s radio show on Mondays for three years. Pokie almost always let me eat for free. Love that man and his family. 

I don’t plan on staying 12 1/2 hours at Buffalo Wild Wings today like I did yesterday. UFC 185 airs tonight, meaning it will get nuts in here after 8 p.m. ACtually, it will be nuts in here earlier, since Kansas plays Iowa State  at 5 for the Big 12 Conference tournament championship. The Jayhawks can’t reach a number one seed, I don’t believe, unless Wisconsin and Villanova were to lose today. Even though Virginia lost yesterday to North Carolina and Duke lost to Nortre Dame in the ACC tournament, one or both will be a top seed. 

Kentucky is already destroying Auburn in the first SEC tournament semifinal. The Wildcats will improve to 33-0 barring an epic collapse. 

Today is the last day of the Kansas high school basketball season.  I’m going to rant in my next post on another facet of the Kansas high school basketball state tournaments which are egregiously wrong. 

About David

Louisiana native living in Kansas. New Orleans born, LSU graduate. I have Asperger’s Syndrome, one toe less than most humans, addictions to The Brady Bunch, Lifetime movies, Bluey, most sports, food and trivia. Big fan of Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, New Orleans Saints, Montreal Canadiens. Was a big fan of Quebec Nordiques until they moved to Denver. My only celebrity crush is NFL official Sarah Thomas. I strongly dislike LSU fans who think Alabama is its biggest rival, warm weather, steaks cooked more than rare, hot dogs with ketchup, restaurants without online ordering, ranch dressing, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, LeBron James, Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, Alex Ovechkin, Barry Bonds, Putin, his lover in Belarus, North Korean dictators, Venezuelan dictators, all NHL teams in the south (especially the Lightning and Panthers), Brooklyn Nets and Major League Soccer.
