Syracuse over Georgetown, 72-58


I’ve refrained from blogging about BBall this year because . . . well . . . I’m pretty successful at refraining from blogging about everything. Anyway, the other reason is that this is a team that I don’t know what to say about.

But that game last night was amazing. I’m a pretty old-school SU fan so G-town has always been THE rivalry; however, it’s been hard to get up for Georgetown games in recent years because they’ve been pretty pathetic. Connecticut took their place as the evil empire. But the Big East tourney last year suggested a rebirth of the rivalry and then to have them in the top 10, 11 straight wins . . . . I have to admit to sitting here with a little paper cup full of the SU Kool-Aid in front of me.

They’ll probably break my heart by losing to Villanova and/or losing in the first round off the NCAAs to the likes of Vermont . . . . but I’m liking being an SU fan for the moment.

Confession: I was wrong about Andy Rautins; the kid can play.

Okay, so I’ve had this bird feeder hanging around the basement for several years; it’s a nice one with a little slate roof I got for Christmas. Just about every year I lived in the townhouse I’d think about getting it out and setting it up (and I may have even done that once) but there weren’t that many birds visible, so . . . .

Anyway, about a month or so ago, I took my mother to Tractor Supply (which is becoming one of my favorite stores, btw; but that’s another story . . . maybe a blogpost . . . ) to buy some birdfeed for her feeders and I bought a bag for us at LHR too. And some suet cakes. And another feeder. Not sure what got into me.

So a few days of empty bird feeders followed by bigass snow storms and we now have birds coming out our ears. They’re all over the place. And they’re getting fat. And pushy. Boy, you hear it when those feeders get empty. And loud . . . little bastards wake me up in the morning.
