Pity those of us who attended colleges with lame athletic programs. But sometimes even we get lucky…and marry into a winning team. Such is my luck this year with the NCAA tournament.
Mrs. Yeoman Farmer’s brother is the top assistant coach at Drake University, and the team had a terrific season. They’re a #5 seed in the tournament, and play their first game on Friday at 12:30. Several family members have flown down to see the game; if we didn’t have two goats in milk and nine ewes set to deliver any day, I’m sure we’d be on our way as well.
At game time tomorrow, we’ll be at the Good Friday services at our parish. Thank God for DVRs. I just hope we can avoid hearing the results until we’ve had a chance to watch.
