The Dosage: Meet Me Under The Arch Edition

I do not care that she is married.

As long as I am looking for love, I will be convinced that Scarlett is my soul mate.

Maybe I'll find true love during my four day vacation .. er.. business trip to St. Louis for the Missouri Valley Conference Men's Basketball Tournament which begins later today.

And by true love I mean three wins for the SIU men's basketball team.

If you want a tourney preview not written by me, I suggest this bit by the Wichita Eagle, which houses Paul Sullentrop, who I feel is one of the best b-ball beat writers in the Valley.

I won't take credit for finding him, but I take suggestions when it comes to reading good writers.

But he still doesn't dress as well as I do.

Not many people do.

From Carbondale to St. Louis: The March to the Arch. SIU has got its work cut out for it and will need three wins to extend its consecutive postseason appearance streak to seven years.

If not, baseball and softball season are in full swing. [Salukis March begins under the Arch]

Saluki softball squeaks by, then smokes SEMO. No. 18 SIU took both games of its home opening series against Southeast Missouri State, beating the Redhawks 2-1 in game one, and 6-0 in game two. The Salukis are now 13-1. They're good and they're fun to watch. So far this season, I'm willing to say they are a sportswriter's dream. [Saluki softball sweeps SEMO in home opener]
