Wordless Wednesday…That Would Be OOPS…


If you follow the brackets for March Madness then you know that there have been some upsets. There have been some wins, though…Texas’ win over Penn State, right Dorie Dillard Austin TX 



Larry and I had two #1 seeds at the beginning of the tournament so out of fairness, we had KU (Kansas University) and UH (the University of Houston) garden flags.

Sadly, someone lost in the second round. 



(I have to confess…I couldn’t bring myself to remove the KU flag. It’s hard to see a grown man cry. LOL)

Good morning, Kathy... your post and final sentence had me giggling for sure! I could say that about my husband when it comes to international soccer.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker this weekend we’ll have more “nervous” time for me when uH plays.

It has been a frustrating March for many a fan. We still have both of our team, men's and women's in the sweet 16. We are also the only school to have both win National championships, in the same year, twice. Maybe a 3-peat?

Wow Ed Silva that’s something!!! I see that Iona has hired the FDU coach already!

Hello Kathy - I am sure there are some alternate favorites still in the March Madness competition.

Annie is a big supporter of Villanova and Virginia Tech. So far the ladies of Villanova have been doing well and we will be cheering them on. I believe Virginia Tech are out, and there are many people i know with broken bracket syndrome after all the upsets.

Hi Kathy,

My former neighbor is a KU fan.  I am sure he is disappointed.  But knowing Jim, he will enjoy the rest of the tournament because he is a basketball fan.

Mar 22, 2023 10:04 AM

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® we'll be watching even with KU out. It's always fun to watch a good came.

Kathy it has been surprising how early some of the #1 teams have been eliminated for both the men and women.

Mar 22, 2023 02:12 PM

George Souto I remember when VA was a #1 seed and lost in the first round . It was a huge upset.

Some of these games have been wildly entertaining. I look forward to them every year.

I feel for your husband - I have twin nephews that went to Purdue. I understand that loss was the biggest in NCAA tournament history :(

Mar 22, 2023 03:17 PM
Kathy Streib

Margaret Goss oh yes, it was a really big loss. I'm always nervous when one of my teams is a #1 seed. Lots of pressure.
