I become consumed with basketball this time of year. I'm mainly a Tarheel fan (my kids and grandkids have Carolina Blue blood coursing their veins), my husband is a retired Duke professor (but not a big basketball fan), I have a master's from Duke, but my Ph.D. is from NC State. So I could pull for the team that is winning among these three, and all three are in the NCAA tournament this year.

Each year I enter my son Michael's office pool, Trust Company of the South. Usually I end up on the bottom (in which case I get my $5.00 back), but last year I was number 27 out of 38. My granddaughter, Grace, picked teams based upon the outfits of the cheerleaders last year, and she came in second. Perhaps I should get some advice from her.
