First Monday in April: Decisions, Decisions.

Torn between two lovers, feeling like a fool
Loving you both is breaking all the rules
Mary MacGregor
Lyrics from the 70s ditty "Torn Between Two Lovers."

I face a similar dilemma this evening since it is Opening Day for my Minnesota Twins as well as NCAA Championship night for the men’s basketball tourney.

Yes, I’m torn between two sporting events.

Normally it’s not an issue since the Twins have been #1 in my heart since 1978. But I have a rooting interest in the basketball final since I boldly predicted the Florida Gators would be the first team to repeat since the 1992 Dukies. I want to bask in my own glory as I nail my second sports prognostication in a 60-day span (The Super Bowl being the other).

Wait!! I just realized I can have it all! The Twins start at 6:00 pm since they are nationally televised. The Florida-Ohio St matchup doesn’t start until 8:00!!

Oh, this is going to be a fun night!!

Go for the tri-fecta. Twins in 2007!

Actually I'm attempting to complete the trifecta by going with Tiger Woods winning his 5th Masters this weekend.

Yeah, I'm really going out on a limb with that one.
