There is probably something symbolic about the names of the combatants in Monday's championship game. The regal dukes against the lowly butlers.

Yet, this game proved itself to be egalitarian. Butler played Duke toe to toe and if only some magic could have been employed by a celestial force, the long shot from Hayward at the end, would have created a storybook finish.

Still it was fun to watch. I lost twice on Monday. Once when Duke won the game because I was rooting for Butler, and once when Butler came within 7 because I had offered my wisdom to any readers for Duke to cover that 7 point spread. For the tournament I finished 32-29-1, a rate of about 53%. I will keep my day job.
