A special Easter edition of Sunday State of Mind. Take some time away from the peeps to read this week’s SSM.

Gonzaga’s heading to the title game
A buzzer beater worthy of the Hall of Fame
Jalen Suggs banked in the buzzer beater
The Bulldogs still riding their season-long heater

So the title game’s set, March Madness winding down
Tomorrow we’ll know who’ll don the crown
It’s Baylor and Gonzaga, the top two squads
Whoever cuts down the nets will be basketball Gods

In other sporting news, baseball is back
America’s pastime’s fans are jacked
First home run of the year, Miggy in the snow!
An awesome start to this year for The Show

The Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament is winding down. We saw some regression to the mean and some big dog’s continue to roll. We recap in this week’s SSM.

Loyola has fallen, no more Sister Jean
Oregon State was tough, looked plenty mean
The Ramblers played well, but OSU played great
The twelfth-seeded Beavers headed to the Elite Eight

Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, this year’s Cinderella
Their parade was rained on by Arkansas, no umbrella
The Razorbacks locked up ORU like an old school jailer
Next up for Arkansas in the Elite Eight? One seed Baylor.

The top seeds keep rolling including Michigan
The Wolverines rolled FSU and won again
Juwan Howard has his boys posed for a deep run
It looks like Michigan is far from done

The third remaining one seed, Gonzaga Bulldogs
Remain clear-minded winners, no signs of fog
An 18 point win in the Sweet Sixteen
The Zags are 29-0, their perfect record’s still clean

Sunday State of Mind: March 15th-March 21st

We are coming to the end of one of the greatest weekends on the sports calendar every year. That’s right, March Madness is in full swing, and we’re here to recap opening weekend in this week’s SSM.

Our first big upset, Oral Roberts over Ohio State
The Buckeyes were flat, Golden Eagles were great
Florida’s next in the bracket for ORU
Will the Cinderella story end or continue?

The best team in the country, Gonzaga Bulldogs
Came out smooth in round one, no plugs, no clogs
They took it to Norfolk, 98-55 was the score
Hard not to imagine The Zags in the Final Four

Another huge upset, this time the East bracket
Abilene Christian came in and caused a huge racket
They took out big brother in the Texas Longhorns
Turns out ACU was big brother, Texas were newborns

The Baylor Bears have looked the part
Two strong wins so far, a solid start
Hartford and Wisconsin caught the Bears wrath
Are Scott Drew and the boys on a championship path?

Sunday State of Mind: March 8th-March 14th

A early St. Patrick’s Day celebration in this week’s SSM.

The bracket is set, worry no more
Gonzaga, Michigan, Illinois and Baylor
Are your number one seeds, cream of the crop
Top flight sports entertainment, who’ll end up on top?

After 20 years, Drew Brees has retired
An incredible career, but time has expired
A sure fire Hall of Famer, 15 years with the Saints
He’s given his all, no complaints

If you know about baseball, you know Spring Training
Can get a little weird, normalcy waning
This week we had a 22-pitch at bat
Luis Guillorme from the Mets, how about that?

Sunday State of Mind: November 23rd-November 29th

We took some time to give thanks this week, and ignored the blog while doing so. But we’re back, and ready to review what we missed in the past seven days in this week’s Sunday State of Mind.

The Match 3 went down, teeing off on Friday
Phil, Chuck, Peyton, and Steph were excited to play
In a big upset, Charles Barkley played well
Chuck and Phil won 4 & 3, Peyton and Steph fell

Some more random sports, Mike Tyson is back!
He fought Roy Jones Jr., but the excitement lacked
It wasn’t a full match, only an exhibition spar
The “fight” was a draw, and was as slow as tar

Moving on to real sports, college basketball
A little behind schedule, still started in late fall
It’s great to see action back on the hardwood
A small step towards things feeling more like they should

Hate to beat a dead horse, but COVID’s still here
Ravished the Ravens, a realized fear
The MVP Lamar Jackson had a positive test
Ravens/Steelers delayed six days, not the best
