Being a 5"9' woman always makes people assume that you must have played basketball growing up. However, not only did I not play basketball, I never even really gave it a chance. I have absolutely no coordination when it comes to dribbling the ball AND moving around on the court. I really never could master doing both at the same time. Or for that matter, I was never much good at playing defense either. It never seemed to click with me... trying to guess which way someone was going to move in hopes that I could block them. Yep, not for me!

I enjoy watching basketball to some extent. I would say it's probably my least favorite out of the three. (NFL, MLB, & NBA.) But once a year basketball does take the front seat in my life. When it's time for the NCAA March Madness tournament, I am as excited as the next sport's enthusiast! I get my bracket printed out, I fill it out with absolutely no idea about most of the teams, I turn it in to my husband and then hope that I will win this years bracket pool. See, every year my husband and I do a bracket pool for all of our friends and family. It really gives you a reason to watch the games and get invested with one of the teams. I also really like rooting for the underdog, so it's the perfect tournament for that. And man oh man, there sure were a lot of upsets this year!! Do you guys watch the madness too?

P.S. This is the worst bracket I have ever filled out in my life!!! 3 out of 4 of my Final Four teams are already gone, including who I picked to win it all. UGH! I am rooting for Louisville now because I sure do feel bad for that poor kid who broke his leg. Who did you pick to win it all?



  1. Louisville? I think. Have fun with the A-Z Challenge.

  2. Interesting theme. From one tall girl to another.... although I am only 5'71/2"... it is annoying when people make assumptions. Enjoy the challenge.

    Patricia, Sugar & Spice & All Things ? Nice

  3. Interesting posts. I am not much into basketball, but I bet I would be if I was still living in Arkansas. My grandson plays. :)
    until next time...nel

  4. My father played basketball in college, but I never learned to play at all. I do like to watch it sometimes though.

  5. Haha! I love how you describe yourself! I found your blog by one of your comments during my A-Z Blogging Challenge tour homework. :)

    I am going to go read your "A" now and I look forward to reading your "C."

    Keep it up!

    Waiter, drink please!

  6. I forgot to do a bracket until it was too late. Must have been too busy blogging. I did win the pool one year at work. Just dumb luck! Obviously, everyone in my family is rooting for Michigan.

  7. I didn't make a bracket this year, but it seems everyone's has gone a little wonky. I smile at the basketball comment...my girls have always had the reverse. They are both super petite and weigh no more than a minute. Pretty much from the time they could walk cheerleading teams tried to talk them into joining...light weight flyers : ) Neither did, until my youngest was in college and one year just decided to be a cheerleader. Even without any cheer experience she made the team. They love the 90 pounders!

    Good luck with the A-Z and thanks so much for visiting my blog!
