Sorry Ypsi.  Water damage no fun at all.

Hope it all comes right soon.

Didn't think about that.

So probably UST wouldn't host the second weekend either if they got it. Seems unlikely it would be the best place for 4 teams to meet when the bracket was made to support a different first round host site.

Lot to happen before any of that matters.

Frustrating day today.  I started bowling with a 174, which was 19 pins higher than last week when I finished with a 614 series (3rd game was a 252, which was my first time EVER breaking the 250 barrier), but it was sharply downhill from there: 150, then 116).  Then went to the grocery store to get stuff for our party this Saturday, not yet knowing that it ain't gonna happen!

I got home to discover my wife had faced a flood from the dishwasher (not even running) when the cheap-sh!t plastic solenoid valve shattered in the cold and the intake ran like gangbusters. (This had already happened last winter during an extreme cold spell, so the valve that shattered was less than a year old - Maytag parts are garbage.)  The damage was enough that we filed an insurance claim, and now have to deal with dampness-mitigation (the bank of dehumidifiers sounds like a 747 next door from everywhere in the house) - 3 to 5 days - followed by who knows how much reconstruction from the company who rebuild after the damage.  Virtually no kitchen for AT LEAST a week, probably 2.

Location of the party had already been moved to two of the guests for a different reason, but we were still the 'hosts' in terms of main dish.  Now have to decide what that will be.  It ain't likely to be my 'world-famous' lasagna!

Congratulations to Illinois Wesleyan

Sorry about that dishwasher, Ypsi. 🙁

Sadly, the plumber who installed it was with the previous homeowner ... so I really don't know who exactly to blame. When the second one burst (or when I discovered it) ... my wife knew there was a problem because I was suddenly silent. I was fuming inside and didn't know how I was going to handle my anger. :)

The first time, I actually had the plumber to fix it, try and blame me and a splitter we put on the bib. He didn't listen to a word I said.

BTW - our second bib broke, apparently, during a mild winter was well. Insane. I still have at least one of them to remind me of stupid mistakes.

Anyway... I am sorry for your issue. I'd suggest you put more insulation behind the dishwasher - but that may cause bigger problems if it were to ever happen again!

Good luck, sir. I hope your insurance company was like mine and handled things swiftly and well.

Buffalo State 88 Brockport State 80

The Bengals must have sacrificed one of their assistant coaches to the basketball gods as they finally broke their unlucky streak with a victory over the Golden Eagles. Oswego, Plattsburgh and Cortland are certainly happy with the Bengals' coaching staff right now.

In a back and forth game that saw 4 ties and 12 lead changes Buffalo State saved their best for last. Tied at 70 with 5:44 left to play the Bengals got a steal and a layup from Christopher Jordan. That was followed with another steal by Buff State's Yosh Bernardez on Brockport's next possession. The Bengals called timeout and shortly after play resumed got a jumper from Dom Grayer to increase  the lead to 4 points with 3:27 left. Brockport scored inside, the Bengals answered with a pair from the stripe and after Brockport came up empty, Grayer hit what may have been the biggest shot of the night, when he buried a 3 pointer to put the Bengals up by 7 with 2:14 to play. Another Port turnover and a score by Buff State gave the Orange and Black a 9 point lead. Never say die Brockport, managed to cut the lead to 5 points with a minute left, but when Jordan scored inside for the Bengals with 56 seconds left the Golden Eagles had to foul down the stretch and Buffalo State went 5 of 6 from the line to post the 8 point win.

I'm sure the bus ride back to Buffalo was the best ride home the Bengals have had all year long!!! ;D       

The Bengals were led by freshman Kemron Frederick who came outta nowhere, in his first ever start, to grab scoring honors with 18 points in 19 minutes of court time.
Sheldon Adams added 16 points, 4 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals.
Kay Grant has a double-double with 11 points and a game high 10 rebounds.
Christopher Jordan had 10 points. 4 rebounds, 2 blocks and a steal.
Yosh Bernardez had 7 points, 6 assists. 6 steals and 5 rebounds.
Kareem Homes had 9 points, 3 assists, 2 rebounds and a steal.
Dom Grayer usually among the leading scorers only had 7 points but 5 of them came in crunch time and were huge. He added 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals.

It looked to be a total team effort that got the win for the Bengals as 10 different players broke into the scoring column and 11 players had rebounds.

Brockport's leading scorers were Brandon Kennedy-Gay and Jahidi Wallace who both tallied 14 points, both coming off the bench to do so. Kennedy-Gay added a pair of assists in 16 minutes of court time. Wallace also had 4 rebounds and a block in 18 minute on the floor.
Danny Ashley had 11 points, 8 assists, 2 rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench. 
Montgomery Stromen had 10 points, 3 rebounds, 2 steals and 1 assist in 20 minutes off the bench.
Justin Summers had 9 points, 8 rebounds,4 blocks and a steal.
Devante Hagins just missed a double-double as he had 9 points and grabbed 9 boards.

Brockport got 52 of 80 points scored from their bench.

Buffalo State outshot Brockport from the field and from long range by a small amount and they both made 17 free throws. The Bengals owned a 39-38 edge in rebounds. Both teams were turnover prone due to the pressure defense both teams use. Brockport lost the battle as they had 23 turnovers to 18 for the Bengals. It was the turnovers in the last 7:40 of the game that proved to be the turning point as Brockport gave up the ball 5 times that led to 8 Bengal points which just happens to be the exact margin of victory. The Bengals had 4 turnovers in that span but Brockport was only able to capitalize for a total of 2 points.

Buffalo State improves to 4-11 overall and 2-7 in the SUNYAC. They will return to action on Friday night when they travel to Cortland for a 7:30 PM tip off.

Brockport falls to 10-5 overall and 6-2 in the YAC. They make the long trip to the North Country this weekend and their first stop is Memorial Hall for a rematch with Plattsburgh State on Friday at 7t:30 PM I'm hoping for a contest similar to the one that took place back on December 7th when the Golden Eagles defeated Plattsburgh by a single point. I just want a different winner.

D-mac, at least you had an idiot plumber to blame; we've just got a faceless 'highly-respected' corporation - Maytag.  (If the Maytag repairman is truly the loneliest man in town (old commercial), it must be because they refuse to pick up the phone!)  Unless you have excellent insulation, their cheap-sh!t plastic solenoid valve WILL shatter during any cold spell (ours was only TWO nights of below zero during a mild winter).  One way or another, we WILL get our kitchen insulation upgraded before next winter, and we will replace this garbage dishwasher, and Maytag will not be among our top 200 choices for the new one!

Sorry sir ... we've experienced three major water damage problems in our townhouse. Two were the two outside water bibs BOTH breaking inside the house because the stupid plumber who installed the frost-free bibs ... installed them incorrectly (instead of it have a downhill run to the outside so water can flow out, he/she installed them with a downslope back INTO the house and the cutoff point). The third has happened twice, actually... the water line to the refrigerator coming apart.

So the humidifiers, torn up walls, floors, and ceilings, is something I am very familiar with. Three insurance claims on it (we decided to suck up the fourth one). It is a pain in the ass. I also have PTSD whenever I hear water running quietly somewhere even when it should be running.
