March Madness has struck our house. How about yours?
Kay really gets into March Madness — both women’s and men’s brackets. She has her bracket pages printed out and is faithfully recording winners as they advance. We’re watching more basketball than we do at any other time.
Campus Crusade for Christ is the #3 ranking among corporate networks in Facebook’s March Madness contest. If you have a Facebook account, log in then go here to see the updated rankings. I didn’t participate, but it’s interesting to watch others.
Back at Superbowl time, I mentioned the BeyondTheUltimate.org evangelistic outreach sponsored by Athletes in Action, the athletic ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
They are doing it again. This time it’s March Madness. Visit BeyondTheUltimate.org. Watch some videos and read personal stories from John Wooden (won 10 national titles coaching UCLA, including 7 consecutive titles 1967-1973), Clark Kellogg (CBS Sports broadcaster), Ruth Riley (center for Detroit Shock), Luke Ridnour (guard for Seattle Supersonics) and others.
But even better, tell your friends at work and at achool about BeyondTheUltimate.org. Oh, and they can also watch Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith talk about their personal faith journeys. Good stuff. God stuff.
Actually, I haven’t been into the March Madness this year…kinda weird. I was sorry to see A&M lose (what am I doing?? this can be saved and held against me for years to come!)…there comes a certain point – mainly when one’s alma mater is ousted from the competition – when one roots for one’s conference. Well, I guess it is up to Kansas for the men’s and Oklahoma for the women’s!
GO BIG 12!!!

March Madness huh.
All this madness over a sport they don’t even wear skates in?
Perhaps a hockey referee hasn’t seen it, but some people don’t need skates go mad! Do hockey players get mad when they don’t have their skates on?
