Manic Monday

My daughter and her fiancee have scored tickets to tonight's NCAA Men's Basketball Finals. The yare both graduates of Butler University. Both have to work Tuesday, but this is an opportunity to see their beloved Bulldogs, and possibly history in the making.

I heard an interview this morning with Brad Stevens, Butler's youthful head coach. It was a shining example of why he has been so successful. To paraphrase, he said he told his players to play for themselves tonight. He said they were NOT playing for the City, the State, nor for small schools everywhere. Stevens said they do not need that burden. How many coaches would offer just the opposite message?
