NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament 2019: Regional Finals- Day 2

Today we’re going to be rooting like hell for Michigan State because, well, Duke. Also Emily and Richard are State Alum and I could have gone myself except, well, Michigan. Auburn is worthy of mention because they’re the closest thing to a Cinderella left in the Tournament after their upset win over North Carolina.

Interestingly enough both the Michigan and Michigan State (who hate each each other almost as much as they both hate Ohio State) Fight Songs were written by the legendary Leonard Falcone who I studied Euphonium under. He thought I was hopeless and he was quite correct.

    Once again the NCAA men’s commentators are all well dressed.

    Greg Gumbel is wearing a bright medium blue jacket with matching blue paisley tie, white shirt and contrasting multicolored pocket square.

    Sitting to Gumbel’s left, Clark Kellogg sports light blue-grey/pink plaid with medium pink/blue striped tie.

    Barkley is sporting a light coffee suit with orange/blue print tie (his alma mater’s, Auburn Tigers, color) with a white shirt.

    Kenny Smith, on Barkley’s right, is wearing a dark brown suit, matching tie and white shirt.
