It didnt take long for the first Cinderella candidates to emerge at the NCAA mens Basketball Tournament. 14th seeded Harvard knocked off #3 New Mexico while a couple of 14 seeds Oregon & California both moved on as well.
Marquette barely advanced, coming from behind to nip Davidson 59-58 on a last second Vander Blue layup.

Mike Fiers got knocked around yesterday against the White Sox as Milwaukee continues to try and solidify its starting rotation. Yovanni Gallardo will go today against the Cubs.
I'm adding a little music to my weekend...heading to Stoughton to see Karla Bonoff in concert. Bonoff was part of the 70's singer-songwriter movement and wrote many songs that became hits for people like Linda Ronstadt and Bonnie Raitt. She also released a number of solid albums of her own. She is playing the Stoughton Opera House (sort of their version of the Grand Theater).
Here are a couple of her tunes as the Songs Of The Day
Isn't It Always Love-Karla Bonoff (1977) from her debut...featuring The Section (Lee Sklar, Russ Kunkel, Craig Doerge and Waddy Wachtel)
Home-Karla Bonoff (1977) another track from the debut...you really should add this album to your collection
