March Madness

C3D

This isn’t a post about basketball.

He’s the rainman of sports. Anyway…this is a post about the madness that the last month entailed. In pictures + captions form.

I stayed up Atlanta-ish past camp to continue my own mini camp. Gotta take advantage of the hills when you can; we don't have those down here. And I got to deal with this ridiculousness for an extra 7 days
