Hey everyone. Charlie here.
March Madness has come and gone. Every year it’s exciting. How did you do in your bracket? I remember a gal I went to college with who actually picked the teams that had her favorite colors. I remember laughing at her….but that was short lived when she ended up beating me, go figure.
I’m someone who watches b-ball with a passion and knows every team in and out, and then to get beat by someone who doesn’t know Duke from Eastern Tennessee Tech….Oh Well you win some, and you lose some.
I was watching ESPN classic and they were playing the 1979 championship game…do you remember the 2 future Hall of Famers who played in that game?
Yep you guessed it…Indiana St’s Larry Bird and Michigan St’s Irvin “Magic” Johnson. 2 names that really took basketball to a new level in the 1980’s.
“Then” the players played differently, they were more “robotic” if you will, more scripted. “Now” the players are just sooo darn athletic, I’m amazed at the agility of today’s players.
Basketball “then and now” were both great. Hopefully you enjoyed this year’s NCAA hoops season.
