As the story of the 2010 NCAA Tourney unfolds it once again plays out like a fine suspense novel. A main character gets killed off early, mystery teams pull off upsets right and left, and the hero marches toward the ultimate climax.
If I were writing this story from my own imagination, I am not sure I could have topped the surprises reality is delivering. Let's see, I think I will develop a story in which a different UK player sets a personal best scoring record in each of the first two games. Oops, that already been done. Let's see, a KY bred and raised walk on who loves the team in ways his NBA bound teammates will never understand, will come in and sink a three that meant nothing to the victory but everything to every true blue fan within the boundaries of KY and beyond. Oh and add the nuance of his superstar teammates jumping up and down celebrating his triumph like they were schoolkids or something. Really? I am looking forward to the next four chapters. Let's write them together.
