We're talking getting home at 1am.

I know, best mom ever, right?
    You are a GREAT mom!

    Has anyone seen the NCAA tourney potpourri thread on the EK Board?http://www.dukebasketballreport.com/...ad.php?t=15342

    It reminds me of the LTE, random musings but with a set topic.

    I'm looking for my inner bad girl (note: NOT my inner b*tch). Can you please let me know if you see her? I have some channeling to do.

    Not as good on the PWing over there however. Eight topics in one post . . . that's unthinkable

    Bd, I vote with those who say go to the game. You have to yell for all of your sister Shin Kickers!

    Number 2 son is a Duke fan, of course, goes without saying, but he's just not as into going to sporting events as his older brother. Plus, we're talking getting home at 1am. I know oldest will be cranky but functional the next day, number 2 son would not be functional.

    I'll fly out. You can take me. There. It's settled.

    Fair enough!

    I suppose schools these days wouldn't really consider Duke getting to the Elite Eight worthy of an "excused absence," would they?

    We've done tag teams like that in the past. Mom and one child or dad and one child goes to the game/concert/tournament. Another alternative is an adult sitter and have them sleep overnight. We'll be OOT or I'd volunteer to escort you or your husband to the game.

    Ymo is considering attending the game. Or at least he was last time I checked this AM.

    My ploy worked.

    Great news!

    I should have thought to make that offer. However, the last, and only, time I went to the Sweet 16 to watch Duke they lost to KU in the first game. Worst part - I was staying in the KU hotel. I had an age reality check too - two kids in the elevator decided I was Nick Collison's mom. My first thought was I couldn't be his mom because I wasn't old enough.

    Reality check was that I quickly realized that I could be his mother and would have been out of college (barely) when he was born.

    Reality bites sometimes.

    Still looking for her... I've decided her name is Roxie. So, if you see Roxie, tell her I'm looking for her. Thanks!

    Don't know yet. Whoever is going is taking in Pitt-Xavier first. That's of course one more reason to send Andrew, his second favorite college b-ball team is Xavier. He's followed them for years. (He'd always root for Duke over Xavier but that's the only one.)
