I spent this weekend watching the Cubs from a distance while attending my younger brother’s college graduation.
We both went to Ohio University (no, not the Buckeyes…we’re Bobcats) and this was my first visit to the campus in six years.
We bar hopped in the morning before the afternoon ceremony. Better said, he did the pub crawling, I bowed out early–Kerry Wood style–stepping away on my own terms and with my head held high–and not in the toilet.

Unbelievable. My Ohio Bobcats as official bracket busters!
Not in a million years!
Wonder if Bob Brenly, Ohio class of ’76, picked the Cats over Georgetown? Or how about Ohio grads Peter King, Jay Mariotti and Thom Brennaman?
Did anyone, for that matter, pick the Cats to topple G-Town? I certainly didn’t. In fact, I placed the Hoyas in the Elite Eight. But of course, I couldn’t be happier for the ol’ alma mater.
Ohio reaches March Madness about as often as the Cubs do. But actually winning a tournament game, dear lord, that’s a story in itself. We’re talkin’ Cubs in the World Series kind of territory!
