Special thanks to the folks at the "For the Love of Chocolate" store here in Richmond. My wife has enjoyed the dark chocolate, Aztec truffles. I think she might forgive me since she let me eat some of the chocolate, too.
Coming Up on Wildcat Wednesday: "Bracket Battle 2009, Episode VIII"

As always, special thanks to "Thinkexist.com" for all the groovy Jack Kerouac quotes.
And next week offers an extra dose of the Wildcat's Lair just for March Madness!
Coming Up on Madness Monday: "Bracket Battle 2009, Episode VII"
UPDATE: I think this is ironic, but the same day I posted this episode is the same day that the University of Kentucky decided to fire its basketball team's head coach. Does this mean Kentucky's athletic director and president are fans of my comic strip? And if they are, does that mean I should apologize to Billy Gillispie (the guy they fired)? Weird.

First things first... I'll be posting Friday's episode close to noon. I just had to stay up to watch the end of the VCU and UCLA match-up.
Talk about a heartbreaker! I had to pull for underdog VCU (That's "Virginia Commonwealth University" for those who don't know). Hey, they're from here in Richmond! Was well worth staying up to watch it. They staged an amazing comeback. They made it all the way to within one point of taking down UCLA, but they just couldn't get that last shot through the hoop before the buzzer. Gah! That hurt... especially since I'd picked VCU to beat UCLA. Quite a few of us in Bracket Battle 2009 picked VCU.
Speaking of the bracket battle, you might have noticed a small addition to the left panel of my blog... a scoreboard to track who's winning and who's losing (and just how badly, too). As you can see, Uncle Kerouac isn't doing well this year. In his defense, he can't bring himself to not pick a team if it has a cat for a mascot. That and he turned to my kids for advice. Poor cat.
Frank's hanging in there, though. So far, I think he's redeemed himself from his poor showing two years ago. Unfortunately, Page has a one-point lead on Frank, which has the makings of a nasty grudge match. I think that could make things quite ugly for those of us living in the Wildcat's Lair... but hopefully, entertaining for all of you.
All right, folks. It's bedtime for the Wildcat. I'll see you again a little before noon.
