Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
I can't wait for tomorrow to be over. The anxiety is giving me fits. I'm already saying, "He's going to miss the free throw," over and over, like a Hail Mary in advance. Meanwhile, I'm also getting prematurely upset about an exclusion that shouldn't even happen in theory. The Bears -- you didn't think I was talking about something else, did you? -- were the only ones in the Pac-10 to beat every other team at least once. UCLA couldn't manage it. Washington couldn't. Arizona couldn't. Together with Cal's 12-6 conference record, that should be enough to get them past the doorman at Studio 65. But shoulds are slippery things. Maybe I should take a break to watch the Oregon-Washington State game, since seeing teams I'm not invested in relaxes me. Maybe I should go to bed. Maybe I should just make like Nietzsche and dispense with the idea that practical reasoning is always already modal. Some day I'll write a book called Philosophy in the Sports Bar.

I hate to increase the chances of a jinx, but with what they've shown during the regular season, Cal's gotta be in.

As for the Cats, well, we'll all be holding our breaths. I just hope it doesn't come down to free throws.

The RPI still matters too much. Arizona is already in because of the RPI, not to mention the, "We didn't have our best player," excuse. Cal is on the bubble because of the RPI alone.

Thanks for writing to soothe my stresed-out basketball nerves.

ahahahaha. I'll help, if you need added input. It's an interesting subject and one I'm well versed in. ;)

I've never really gotten into college ball, but I watched some of the first half of the Syracuse Uconn game at the gym this morning and it was awesome.
I'll start paying attention. I do live in Tucson after all. It's kinda mandatory.
