Spring Haiku, March, 2012

by Neal Whitman

March Madness! For many of you, those words bring to mind how wild and woolly the weather can be. The calendar says “First Day of Spring,” but you are not ready to fold and put away the extra blanket you spread over the bed last November. For gamblers, March Madness means point spreads! They go a bit crazy when the basketball team they bet on did (or did not) beat the point spread. In our home, Elaine and I do have a friendly wager on the outcome of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Oh, I do not get too crazy over winning or losing, but what is maddening is how it can take up to twenty minutes to play out the last one minute left on the game clock. Time is a mystery, eh?
