So, OK, the NCAA basketball tourney is a "basketball" test of wills. You've got to win six live-or-die games to earn the title of nation's best.
But this season, in particular, it seems it's also a challenge of school colors, especially the blues: navy, bright blue and - my personal favorite - Carolina Blue (notice the cap letters?) vs. the oranges - Tennessee and Clemson - and the abundance of reds - Stanford and Wisconsin.
Even if your alma mater isn't in the hunt - or already has been knocked out (sorry about that, Saint Mary's fan who wore maroon and navy to work) - the next couple of weekends provide great opportunities to wear some great school colors, paint your face and "party like it's 1969," which is what the Drake fans (pictured) did until getting knocked out today by Western Kentucky in overtime.
The Drakies, who were in the Big Dance's Final 4 in, really, 1969, came with faces painted and kooky hats. In other words, they worked it in terms of school spirit fashion.
So if you see any folks walking around Sac in that special shade of blue, you'll know what it means.
Psycho T? You betcha!
