Number of NCAA Championships Compared to the Cost of Attending

Saw this on Twitter and thought I’d share, given that it’s March Madness. From their site:

With the cost of higher education rising every year, we wondered whether there was correlation between the numbers of NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships and the cost of attendance at these elite universities.

March Madness

Kentucky didn’t do too badly here. If #8 happens in a few weeks, will these numbers change?

Kentucky fans have The Madness all year long.

It could be a blessing or a curse, this obsession with college basketball. I should be fair, it’s really just Kentucky basketball but it’s truly an addiction as any member of the Big Blue Nation will attest.

And today… it begins.

Top 10 Misused Words, English Edition

How annoying are people like this? Heh.

Great list of words used wrongly. (Did I just use “wrongly” wrongly??) I like the part when they call “ultimate” the most misused. Anyone with teenagers knows that “awesome” is a far more frequent offender, but perhaps not so far from the word’s true meaning.

Check out all 10 of the misused words.

2012 Mindset

Whether this is a true quote from Mother Teresa or not, it sounds like something she would have said.

I do not pray for success, I ask for faithfulness.

It’s also something that I need to remember as I wake up each morning and live each day.

What Does It Mean to Be From Kentucky?

I was sent this in an email and thought that some of you will find it accurate.

Proud Papa

The year is 2016 and the United States has just elected the first woman president who happens to be from Kentucky. A few days after the election the president-elect, whose name is Debra, calls her father and says, “So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?”

“I don’t think so. It’s a 10 hour drive.”

“Don’t worry about it Dad, I’ll send Air Force One. And a limousine will pick you up at your door.”

“I don’t know… everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?”

“Oh Dad,” replies Debra, ‘I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by the best designer in Washington .”

“Honey,” Dad complains “you know I can’t eat those rich foods you eat.”

The President-to-be responds, ” Don’t worry Dad. The entire affair will be handled by the best caterer in Washington; I’ll ensure your meals are salt free. You and Mom just have to be there.”

So Dad reluctantly agrees, and on January 20, 2017, Debra is being sworn in as President of the United States . In the front row sits the new President’s Dad and Mom.

Dad, noticing the senator sitting next to him, leans over and whispers, “You see that woman over there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States.”

The Senator whispers back, “You bet I do.”

Dad says proudly, “Her brother played basketball for Kentucky.”
