After another exciting encounter with Vagina Doctor #37, SulliMom was informed she has reached the one centimeter mark in dilation after some gentle investigation which I witnessed first hand…pretty interesting.
She’s 37 weeks now and has been feeling a few braxton hicks contractions. So we’re on our way toward birth…not Indy for the championship tilt. This was a little disappointing for SulliMom but she is managing. (After nailing the national semifinal predictions, here is the SulliPrediction for the title game: Butler 51, Duke 46.)
To celebrate the one centimeter point we traveled to Buy Buy Baby to pick-up a few items. One of those items was the Boppy which is pretty awesome. I have experience using the Boppy with our niece Tess. The Man-Zike-Uhs (Sarah and Tom Mazeika) have one and it was pretty sweet. It allows you to hold the little one with a little more comfort giving your arms a comfortable rest. I can see myself Boppying quite often.
We’ve had a huge past few days to recap. More to come. Until then, it’s Oberweis time. I need to make-up my chocolate intake after about 40 days without for Lent and to celebrate the White Sox and Mark Buehrle‘s Opening Day shutout. Check out his amazing between the legs, backhand play to get an out.
Four teams remain: WVU, BU, Duke and MSU.
I think my favorite comparison of the teams this week came from ESPN’s Pat Forde. Quality stuff.
But here are my simple Saturday predictions. Let’s see how I do.
National Semi #1
Michigan St 57
Butler has scored 63 points the last two games. Both wins. Syracuse had 59, K-State 56.
Michigan St. falls in the middle. I’ve watched a lot of both teams this season. This is hard to believe but Butler has better players–even if they had Lucas. I’m not sure Stevens can out-coach Izzo, but it won’t come down to that. Butler will play the game they are capable of but haven’t played yet in the tournament.
National Semi #2
West Virginia 70
I like both of these teams but haven’t watched a lot of either. What I have watched I’ve seen WVU play hard and with passion. Butler is very clutch. But as I’ve heard Huggins say on radio and TV, his team isn’t good enough to win at this level without playing a perfect game. That won’t happen tomorrow and Duke’s guards will make sure Coach K advances to another championship game. (That is a must-watch link)
I’ll be there; I’ll be sure to provide exclusive coverage.
LASTLY: In conclusion, the great Jim Furner passed an e-mail along that made me laugh out loud. It hit home because I just received one that almost made me forward it to the required 20 people before reality set in and my lack of hitting send wouldn’t destroy my family.
Humorous stuff from a humorous guy. Thanks Gym (Jim)
