IMC guy will probably agree with me when I say that Duke's Gerald Henderson should be nicknamed "Heimlich." Because he certainly saved the Blue Devils from choking tonight. Number 2 seed Duke beat number 15 seed Belmont by a point, thanks to a last-minute layup from Heimlich Henderson.
Of course, it's not like I actually got to WATCH the game. I was stuck at the school for parent conference night! And I do mean stuck, since my last conference ended around five after seven, but I couldn't leave until 10 till eight. All I could do was pace back and forth in front of my computer as the ESPN scoreboard automatically reset itself every 60 seconds. I'm pretty sure that's how Jean Paul Sartre defined hell.
At least we have tomorrow off, thanks to the inclement weather day and the fact that DISD never closes due to weather. So I will be set firmly in front of my television set disagreeing with every word that comes out of Billy Packer.
In other news, we began the first round of our classroom March Mathness tournament today. It will be interesting to see how the kids do as they move forward in the brackets. We found out that our kids did very well on the TAKS reading test from a couple of weeks ago! Many of the kids that we were really concerned about crested that hill and passed the test, and nine of our kids got a commended score!!
Enjoy the round ball! And while you're at it, swing on over to So You Think You Can Teach and check out the Carnival of Education! Joel's on spring break, so feel free to TP his blog.
