I'm a native of Maplewood, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul. It was there that I was inflicted with the curse of being a Minnesota Vikings fan. There is still no known cure, though many times I wish there was. I'm also an avid follower of the Minnesota Twins and of course, the Iowa State Cyclones.
So I’m not getting a lot of work done today. Yesterday was pretty much the same. The reason for this is pretty simple: This is Masters week. The first and second round of The Masters and the first two days of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament are pretty much my least productive days of the year. I blame this on the internet, of course. As if there weren’t enough distractions out there already, the live streaming coverage of these events has me pretty much gaping at the monitor like a brain-dead yokel. What’s that you say? I can watch these events on my phone, too? Well, looks I’ll be even less likely to interact with my fellow humans! Thanks, internet!
