Topic: "Spelling, -23" (6)
The Major League Baseball Season opens (in Atlanta) on Monday; the College Basketball Season ends (everywhere) that evening. Beside the fact that this convenient overlap means that Frodo can continue his string of never having watched a single reality TV show episode (which he fully intends to continue ad infinitum), the glorious weather nationwide (except in the State of Washington where it is presently snowing) signals a boundless hope for the future in the mind of the Hobbit.
The Hobbit has been in a state of euphoria ever since he caught sight of a poster held aloft in front of a TV camera just before the beginning of last night's semi-final NCAA match-up between Duke and West Virginia. It should be noted that a Duke player named Scheyer scored 23 points to lead perennial powerhouse Duke into the final game on Monday, against Butler University (see "Hoosiers" starring Gene Hackman). The poster read: "HOBBITS LOVE THEIR SCHEYER."
Indeed they do.
There is hope for all of those with a sense of humor, and heads large enough to hold their dreams.
Duke by 15.
