Mad, mad world

March Madness is indeed in full swing. I didn’t get out of my hotel room until after 11 this morning. Apparently, I valued sleep more over getting a parking spot and a place at the bar at Buffalo Wild Wings. I also wasn’t looking forward to the 25-mile drive in the rain, but I knew I had to make it–unless I wanted to spend the day in my room at Overland Park.

I left at 9 last night after a few very good rounds of trivia. I scored almost 8,900 (out of 15,000) at the science fiction game which is every Wednesday at 6:30. That’s rare. I usually am somehwere closer to 5,000. 

SIX was outstanding–nearly perfect in the final round and almost 55,000. Almost 8,900 at Lexitopia, the arcane definitions game on Wednesdays at 8:15. I also got my butt kicked by Abby, the guest experience captain, at the Big Buck Hunter video game. I figured out next time I’ll shoot with the left and pump with the right. 

I picked up Outback afterwards. Too bad my filet was overdone. I sent a complaint via e-mail this morning. The lobster tail was great, and my salads are in the room refrigerator. 

I had to make a stop at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Zona Rosa for socks. I am out of socks and underwear. I can wash the underwear with my jeans, but the socks need warm water, and besides, I’m not in the mood to fold them here. 

It took about 8 minutes to find a parking spot at Buffalo Wild Wings, but I was fortunate a gentleman came out. I waited patiently for him to back out, and there I was. 

I was very fortunate there was a spot at the bar. Lisa greeted me warmly, and here I am, playing trivia and talking to a nice gentleman from Des Moines, an Iowa Hawkyes fan. I’m probably here until at least 8, becuase I want to play SIX again at 7 tonight. 

LSU”s game vs. North Carolina State is at 8:20. It will be a tough one for the Bayou Bengals, but it’s nice to see them in the tournament for the first time since 2009. I remember watching their first round win over Butler at Buffalo Wild Wings in Liberty–the Zona Rosa location was still two years away–and the loss to North Carolina in my hotel room at the KCI Marriott. Who knew Butler would reach the title game in 2010 and 2011? 

Notre Dame is today’s first winner, holding off Northeastern of Boston 69-65. The Huskies had a chance to tie or go ahead in the final seconds but did not get a shot off.
