Music Monday: March Madness and Roxy's 1000th Post

Even though Maddie is my March Madness baby, her older sister London in the 2001 photo on the left loves playing and watching basketball, too. This weekend, the girls had their last Mendham Patriots basketball clinic -- kids won the annual parents vs. kids game -- and now it's time to settle in on the couch for three weeks of March Madness NCAA basketball action starting this Thursday, March 18th. The NCAA tournament will also be welcome entertainment for my mom, who has moved to Bridgeway rehab to recover from her hip surgery for the next few weeks.

As noted in the title of this post, you're reading Roxy's 1000th post here at Roxiticus Desperate Housewives. We're celebrating our One Shining Moment by raising a glass of bubbly and offering you a shot a ONE MILLION DOLLARS. If you love basketball or would just love to fill your purse or pockets with a million bucks, here are Roxy's links to all the free NCAA Million Dollar Bracket contests. If you're the one with the perfect bracket, please thank us with an appropriate share of your winnings.

I also see that Mariuca is hosting a big EntreCard contest at her Wishing on a Falling Star blog... all you have to do to win up to 25,000 EntreCard credits is to guess the number of EC the Genie Princess has in her account.... I'm going with 138,025... or maybe 142,879... or even 148,012...wish me luck!

Back in the 1980s, when I attended Syracuse University, I was too focused on my studies to care much about the basketball team, even though I lived next door to the shiny new Carrier Dome. Since then, I have mellowed a lot, married Rex, and given birth to two basketball-loving little girls (that's six-week-old London in her Syracuse Orange bib in the photo above), and our family has come to celebrate the time of year known as March Madness.... the NCAA college basketball championships and tournament.

Now.... it has been seven long years since the Orangemen won the NCAA tournament in 2003, but as March Madness gets underway with the Orangemen ranked #1 in the country, I thought I'd share One Shining Moment with all of you.



The ball is tipped
and there you are
you're running for your life
you're a shooting star
And all the years
no one knows
just how hard you worked
but now it shows...
(in) ONE SHINING MOMENT, IT'S ALL ON THE LINE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, THERE FROZEN IN TIME

But time is short
and the road is long
in the blinking of an eye
ah that moment's gone
And when it's done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew...
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED DEEP INSIDE
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW YOU WERE ALIVE

Feel the beat of your heart
feel the wind in your face
it's more than a contest
it's more than a race...

And when it's done
win or lose
you always did your best
cuz inside you knew...
(that) ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU REACHED FOR THE SKY
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU KNEW
ONE SHINING MOMENT, YOU WERE WILLING TO TRY
ONE SHINING MOMENT....
