March Madness in the Bluegrass

As soon as the sun warms the earth in the spring, I open my windows and it’s time to clean house. This year, I’m clearing out stuff. You know that stuff you keep hoarding because someone might need it? Well, it’s four years later, and no one needed it, so it’s headed for another life somewhere else.

What does that have to do with March Madness? Think about it. Madness. Spring cleaning. Definitely related. And while I’m marathon cleaning, hubby is marathon potato-ing. You see, basketball is practically a religion in Kentucky.

But don’t dare mention Kentucky and basketball in the same sentence if you’re in the vicinity of a red-clad Louisville native. Rivalry is alive and well in the state of Kentucky. It’s between the Red and the Blue. And this year, you have to admit the Blue is awesome. But families have been literally torn apart by this rivalry.
Me? I don’t have a choice. I live with a rabid Kentucky fan. But here’s a secret–I’m proud whether the winner is wearing red or blue–I’ve got friends and family on both sides. Shhh! Don’t tell on me.
Do I watch the game? When I have to. Truth is, I get so nervous, I have to leave the room and guess what I’m doing? Cleaning. But I’m peeking at the TV every few minutes, just to check the score.
So now you know the connection between March Madness and spring cleaning–for me, anyway.
