It has become a strange tradition. On the opening Friday of the NCAA tournament I gather with some friends at a bowling alley to drink, shoot the shit, bowl, and cause trouble. There is some basketball watching involved but not much. It provides the excuse for this unusual tradition of ours.

I think this is the 4th year of hitting the Lanes. Two years ago might have been the most memorable when a bunch of brave idiots challenged a blizzard and made it up for the shenanigans. It was notable because my friend's husband was irate at her for going out in that storm. He was not happy when we spoke to him all hooched up. It took him a couple of hours to wind down.

Last year might have witnessed one of the funniest comments from some of the girls of the lesbian persuasion. I add that note mainly to get another lesbian website to link to be in a fit of misdirected rage. Got that a couple of years ago and feel the need to hit one out of the park again.

It is with great anticipation that I look forward to the day. Having a day away from work is nice but to spend it in a totally foolish manner might be even better.
