NCAA Basketball: Final Four-Villanova vs Kansas Pool Photo-USA TODAY Sports

Fortunately for everyone here I have to make Flakes a little short today. I have the articles below but not much for any other content and my Monday morning is already going at full speed.

Tonight we have the NCAA Tournament final game between Villanova and Michigan. ‘Nova is probably playing as well as any team I have seen in some time and the Wolverines have had an amazing late season push. It should be a good game but I see the Wildcats coming out with the win in the end.

Well, me and my bracket see it that way. I’m so glad I didn’t go with Virginia or Arizona.

This is also the time of year I switch over to hockey. I use to follow it from start to finish but as time has gone on I can only focus so much time and college basketball has take over the top spot in my life.

With that said we are in the final week of the regular season and my beloved Detroit Red Wings are going to miss out on the playoffs for yet another year. I use to be where I had at least a month or so of hockey before it was over. Not anymore, the franchise has hit on hard times but I will go into that another day.

Anyway, on to flakes...
