The Madness of King {2-1-1-1-1}

This weekend is going to be a big one! Spring Break is (technically) here for students in the Houston area. As to why Spring Break is in the middle of March instead of around Easter? It’s like trying to find the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop.

In the world of college sports, the selection process for the NCAA men’s basketball teams is Sunday, with the women’s selection on Monday. Of course, to get to the weekend, we must get through Friday night first.

A three-peat for the {2-2-1-1} Pattern wasn’t in the cards on March 9th drawing. The King of Mega Millions Patterns kicked off the weekend instead.
