Go Duke!

I've never rooted for Duke University's basketball team in my life, but if Mizzou doesn't win the NCAA tournament this year, I hope that the Blue Devils do.


The reaction of Duke's legendary coach, Mike Krzyzewski, to news that Barack Obama "spent part of Tuesday making his tournament picks for ESPN, which posted his completed bracket online Wednesday and showed the First Fan [I didn't know that was an official title] filling it out with Andy Katz on the noon edition of "Sportscenter."

Coach K said, "the economy is something that he should focus on, probably more than brackets."  (Link to story here.)

True enough Coach.  But you have to give Obama credit for working on something about which he might have a clue for a change.
