The Tough Choices In Life: MAC Basketball Or Curling?

These are not pictures from my curling tournament this weekend, but holy cow what are they doing in the photo archive?!

I picked a really weird time to be out of town this weekend, given that it made me unable to watch the Mid-American Conference Basketball Tournament semifinals and finals. In that regard, I am an awful MAC blogger.

My excuse was valid and understandable to a select subculture. I participated in a curling "bonspiel" (tournament) in Columbus that went from Friday to Sunday. But we lost all three games we played, so in a second regard I am also an awful curler. But when passions collide, one of them is going to be neglected. Hopefully you enjoyed the coverage laid down by Ben Miraski and our other brethren. They've got capable hands and fingers.

It sounds like there was some excellent basketballin' over the weekend. A little bit miffed, I'll admit, that BGSU was upset by Central Michigan, with the Chips completing the sex-sweep of the Falcons in the MACT and ruining their chance to play an NCAA tournament game in their home court. But congratulations to Eastern Michigan for winning the MAC in dramatic fashion, as well as OHIO for downing Akron in equally, if not completely different, nailbiting fashion. (Is Alex Abreu going to be the first person in basketball history to have recurring nightmares about MAKING free throws?) And I like both their chances to get into the second round.

Hey, I can't be everywhere at once. When given the chance between curling and watching MAC basketball, I'm going to be torn every time. But I'm back now … and videos will obviously continue in production this week. So far five MAC teams have been named to postseason tournaments and a sixth seems almost inevitable. And that's even before the women's tournaments. We have much basketball left to watch and digest, even if some of it doesn't "matter." But in sports, who's to say what actually matters? Case in point: I'm super-excited for BGSU to play at Oakland University in the CIT, because it's presumably the last chance I'll get to see a Torian Oglesby dunk. And those are like heroin-laced catnip to me.
