Final Madness

Michigan State - North CarolinaI didn't have the heart to blog about it last night, but the Madness Final was the worst blowout you could imagine.  Possibly worse than that...  I watched from an IBM reception in a bar, and I must tell you five minutes in you could tell, it was over.  I mean seriously the Fridge Score was 35:00.  Sometimes you have a team that just matches up perfectly with another, and so it was with North Carolina against Michigan State, everything they did worked, and there was nothing Michigan State could do about it.  All the adjustments were for naught.  It's kind of too bad because there was a whole storybook aspect to Michigan State, how they were a #3 seed, but were on a great run, they were playing in Detroit, Magic Johnson was there, etc.  Didn't matter.  North Carolina played like the #1 seed they were, and blew them out.  It was so lopsided that the final score of 89-72 is deceptive; the whole second half was extended garbage time.

Well so be it, another year's March Madness is past; onward...
