March 25th- Underdog victories...
The NCAA Madness has delivered – one upset after another, first time ever no number 1 ranks in the Elite Eight. Fun if you like underdog victories. Exciting as a fan with no real stakes.
Is there an omen, a message in what is happening? Perhaps momentum trending in a direction away from the expected, towards the unexpected. If sports can set the stage for life, I welcome this trend. A disruption to be reckoned! Time to accept an upset of what appears to be the ‘favored’ status. More Cinderella stories, more passionate all-in performances, more heart, more authenticity, more in the moment – more believing in anything is possible, can be.
As I tune in today, have to relook at my upside-down bracket and determine all new picks. A fresh start. A nothing to lose, all out attitude. A rallying around life's pleasant surprises.
Victories do not limit themselves to predictions.
Hmmm, not all is predictable…day 234!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
