On Hoops and Handbells

On NCAA Brackets: Round 2
The brackets are now down to 32 and we’ll know the Sweet 16 by the end of the weekend. Since there are some great matchups in this round, here’s a take on some of the this weekend’s games.

Gotta Pick

  • Memphis over Maryland
  • UConn over Texas A&M
  • Villanova over UCLA
  • North Carolina over LSU
  • Oklahoma over Michigan
  • Syracuse over Arizona St
  • Kansas over Dayton
  • Louisville over Siena
  • Michigan State over USC
  • Arizona over Cleveland State b/c I said Arizona didn’t belong

The Coins Says

  • Washington over Purdue
  • Duke over Texas
  • Oklahoma State over Pitt
  • Missouri over Marquette
  • Wisconsin over Xavier

Upset Special

  • Western Kentucky over Gonzaga

PS: Anyone having a problem with President Obama completing a bracket is a problem and needs to get a life.

On Handbells
I’ve mentioned before that my wife and I play in our church’s chime & handbell choir. We played a classic piece on Ash Wednesday, and are playing it again at our first bell fest this weekend. Well, courtesy of YouTube, here’s the piece, but you will notice it is not our group of 13. Enjoy!
