It was a big week in sports for local sports teams. The University of Connecticut (UCONN) Huskies men's basketball team, my alma mater ('93 M.S. Computer Science) defeated Butler to win the 2011 NCAA championship. After placing 9th in the Big East at the end of the regular season, UCONN won 5 games in 5 days to win the Big East Championship before going on to win their third national championship.
I attended the New York Met's home opener against the Washington Nationals on Friday. Unfortunately, the Mets lost 6-2.
The Boston Red Sox won their home opener against the New York Yankees but continue to struggle early in the season (1-7). The Sox will try to close out the series with a win against the Yankees tonight at 8PM.
My kids are all playing little league baseball this spring and practices are in full swing. Games start next week
