No, you didn't happen upon a sports blog by accident. I've just been out of my mind busy, and haven't been able to post much music stuff lately. And in between a boxing outing and March Madness, well, events happened that needed to be reported.
Last night, the Virginia Tech Hokies punched their ticket to the men's Sweet Sixteen by taking down a pesky Liberty team. Tech was in the East Region but inexplicably played its first two games in San Jose, CA. They now return to the real East (Washington, DC) to face the number one seed in the tourney, Duke.
Yes, I know, Duke is amazing. They have Zion and Barrett. They are probably going to beat the Hokies. But Duke almost lost to UCF, and as I recall, the overall number one seed in last year's tournament, UVA, lost to the last team in, UMBC (I loved typing that). And, oh yeah, VT did beat Duke in the regular season. It's why they play the games.
I'll be watching and rooting for the good guys on Friday. Even if they lose, it's been a fanstastic year for the Hokies, and it's exciting that they are still among the 16 remaining teams with a shot at the national title. And if they win? I'll be back. Regardless, we can all agree that we hate Duke, right?
And speaking of national titles and VT, Mekhi Lewis, a VT wrestler, won the individual national title this weekend in the 165 pound weight class. Congrats to Mekhi.
