Hello, Rob Wegman here and it’s time for the WRAF Sports Update.
Apparently while I was gone, something called the NCAA Tournament began and as usual all sorts of chaos ensued as soon as the brackets came out. In the tournament's opening weekend there were buzzer beaters, nail biters, and of course a bevy of upsets. In fact, the Tampa pod site devoted its entire four game opening round to upsets and now sends two 12 seeds to the Sweet 16. Joining them there is fellow double-digit seed Davidson as well as surprise 7-seed West Virginia. On the other end of the spectrum, all four #1 seeds advanced to the round of 16 for the fourth consecutive year. We now have a few days to catch our collective breath, but the narrowing of the field resumes Thursday with one game from each of the four regions.
And if for some strange reason basketball isn’t your thing, a new alternative is set to begin tomorrow and run until late October. The 2008 Major League Baseball season begins tomorrow and fittingly enough America’s pastime will begin its season in Japan. The Red Sox and A’s are scheduled to play a two-game series in Tokyo, in games that will count toward the regular season standings, before the season really gets started stateside next Monday. Boston will send Dice-K and Jon Lester to the mound and Oakland will counter with Joe Blanton and Rich Harden.
That’s your afternoon sports update sponsored by Toccoa Falls College. My bracket is in shambles as always but I still can’t wait for the next round of games. I hope your bracket looks better than mine but even if it doesn’t you’re still allowed to take part in the madness. Isn’t this a great country?
