It's a Jungle Out There!

Dear BCs,

It sure is good to be home! Florida is one scary place. You know I enjoy communing with nature. So on my last day in the Sunshine State, I decided to visit a wildlife preserve. All I can say is that there were moments during my visit when I thought my most recent email to you might be the last you ever heard from me! And that would have been terrible because I especially wanted to thank your readers for their comments following the NC State game . . . they really helped fill me in on all the fun I missed.

Nope, no more traveling for me for a while -- except to Greensboro for the ACC tournament, of course. There I might meet some scary human specimens -- like Tarheels, Blue Devils, Cavaliers and Seminoles -- but no more close encounters with wildlife anytime soon!

Like you, tomorrow night (Monday) I'll be watching the Terps play up at Boston College . . . from the comfort of my own family room (Comcast SportsNet at 7 PM). That's as close as I plan to get to any live Eagles.

Uh, uh. I've sworn off large birds ever since a crazed Ostrich attacked me in Florida! She even tried to break my windshield. I'm lucky to have escaped with my life!

I've also sworn off Giraffes for a while, too! All I was doing was trying to say Hi and the next thing I know, I'm looking down a very very very very long throat. Frankly, I wasn't sure if the big guy was trying to french kiss me or have me for lunch! Either way, I didn't stick around to find out.

On the drive home, I did meet one friendly character . . . Pedro. My buddy, Obie, told me I simply had to stop in to see Pedro at South of the Border. Obie assured me that South of the Border would be a lot of fun. All I can say is, "Obie, if that's your idea of a good time, you need to get out more."

Good luck to the Terps tomorrow up in Chestnut Hill. Pedro Sez Beat the Eagles!

Your friend, Petey

Monday Morning Update: Good feature about Anjale Barrett in this morning's Washington Post (link here) and The Diamondback reports that Coach B is "not satisfied" (link here).

And if you've ever wanted to visit (or re-visit) Paris, March 8th might be a good time to be there. That's the date, and Paris is the place, of the Euroleague All-Star Game. The game is structured as Europe against the Rest of The World, and the players are selected by popular vote. As one of the top-5 vote-getters for Europe, Shay Doron will be starting for the Euros. And coming off the bench for The World: Laura Harper and Crystal Langhorne (as well as the Mystics' Alana Beard). Shay, Harp & Lang . . . all together again, for a day (in Paris!) . . . how cool is that!

One more thing . . . the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) website is running a poll question: "Who do you want to take a buzzer beating shot to win a game?" Duh! As far as the BasketCases are concerned, there should've been only ONE choice: Kristi, of course! But, shockingly, as we write this, KT is only in THIRD place! Maybe our loyal readers would like to help correct this error . . . Yes We Can! (Link to the poll here.)

Petey! You're lucky to have escaped with your life! Get back to College Park where the terrapins are only hostile to visitors.

KT is now on top in the WBCA poll! Yeah!
