Happy Maundy Thursday, and yes, happy opening day of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Oh Baby (I hope you do a better Dick Vitale impression than I do). If you are going to watch just one game, tune in tonight at 6:00 pm on WCCO/CBS to the USC vs. Kansas State game. In this game you will see two 'Diaper Dandies' (to use Dickey V's lingo), which means two super freshman: Michael Beasley for Kansas State, who is a great scorer, rebounder, and will likely be the 1st pick in the NBA. USC has super frosh OJ Mayo. I'd like to see more of Michael Beasly, so I'm cheering for Kansas State and taking the 2 points (for entertainment purposes only.)
Here is an interesting March 18th story for the Pre-Millennialists of you out there. For the first time in 1,938 years the linen garments of the lay priests are being produced in preparation for the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. A total of 120 garments are in the process of being made. The last priestly garments to have been worn were those worn by the priests who were martyred by the Roman legions who brutally invaded and destroyed the Holy Temple on the ninth day of the month of Av, in the year 70 A.D.
