Down to the Final Four

Kentucky, UConn, and... Virginia Commonwealth and Butler?

Oh, well. I'm sure that screwed up a ton of office brackets, but if you bet on sports you know that momentum is a fickle thing, and it enable the most unlikely of underdogs to shine as giants (what, Duke?) unexpectedly collapse.

I'm one of a small number of native North Carolinians immune to "March Madness," but that is certainly a product of going to a school (East Carolina) that has always been more focused on the gridiron and the diamond than the court. Now that Carolina has fallen, most of my fellow Tarheels will settle back down to work.

It will be all over a week from today in Houston and the rest of the nation will turn their attention eslewhere.

They maybe someone will inform President ESPN that we're at war in Libya. I'm sure he'll be surprised.

The 1st words out of President ESPNs mouth will be spmething to the effect of "what's a Libya?"

Butler U. shouldn't be too much of a surprise. They were in last years final.
