Let's make a deal
As most of you either know or have experienced, we've had over 100 inches of snow in Madison, Wisconsin this winter. It's snowing a little bit right now. If it continues to snow, it's very possible that people are going to start purposely hitting each other with their cars. Or stabbing each other.
In the meantime, the Wisconsin Badgers basketball team is making a run in the NCAA tournament. It made me ponder a question this morning. If you could guarantee that the Badgers would win the tourney, but the price you'd have to pay is that it'd be snowy until June, would you make the deal?
Actually, let me expand that beyond the Badgers to anyone with a team still in the tournament. Would you accept that kind of personal hardship for your team to win? Is that "one shining moment" enough to make up for 9-10 weeks more of snow?

|I'd gladly make that trade. Stick the libs in Madison with another couple months of snow hoping to knock a bunch off before the election and a big 10 team as champ? Hey, we here in NC will take that easily!!!
Die Madison hippies, die!

|This is the easiest choice ever! It looks as if the snow may continue until June anyway; I'd accept it joyfully if it meant a Badger victory. |

|I said no. First, I want the lakes to thaw sometime in the near future so I can kayak - I didn't get a snazzy new paddle for nothing. Second, I want them to win because they are BETTER, not because I made some crazy deal. |
