Bye Big East ... Hello Broderick

How sad it is ... no longer will we have a Big East Basketball Tournament in Madison Square Garden. Instead, there will be a tournament for the Catholic 7 ... the remaining teams ... who will "buy the name" and start a new tradition.

For USF ... it was a really sad time. We lost in the first round of the last tournament on Tuesday night. We were there.

Enough said.

I took a shot of the scoreboard in the first five minutes when we were in the lead 12-8. (the only time)

Debbie fraternized with the mascot ... Rocky. It was the one highlight.

Tonight, there was another high point. We saw a great remake: Nice Work If You Can Get It.

Here's the story ... It's the Roaring Twenties, and a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of a wealthy playboy. But things don't go as planned when the playboy meets a bubbly and feisty bootlegger who melts his heart.

It stars Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara. Featuring Judy Kaye (Best Featured Actress in a Musical) and Michael McGrath (Best Featured Actor in a Musical). And ... Blythe Danner showed up in the last act.

The Gershwin Boys were at their best. Go see it ... you won't be disappointed!

Back tomorrow. Bye from the APPLE.
