Yes, it’s getting to be that time of year again. That time when the Louisville Basketball Cards get my hopes up by doing real well (maybe even winning) in the Big East Tournament, only to dash my head up against the sea-foam flecked jetty by crapping the bed in the actual NCAA Tournament.
Well, they’re doing it again, playing one of the best games of their season against #9 ranked Marquette (the #2 seed in the Big East Tournament), snagging 26 offensive rebounds and forcing Marquette into 25 turnovers (they’d averaged 12 all year). Will this defensive dominance be enough to take them past Notre Dame tomorrow night and into the finals on Saturday?
I don’t really care, as I’m steeling myself against any victory. It’s all for the best, believe me.
Except for purchases of EXK and TC on Wednesday, I’ve been sitting around eating samitches. I’m still a bit leery of this market, despite the dollar losing a lot of steam today while gold & silver strengthened. I’m up pretty nicely on EXK and I’m even thinking about adding some more AG. However, I still continue to believe that AUY is one of the better bets in the gold miner market. Check how the price has rebounded nicely on the weekly:
And this is where I think the “safe zone” is to purchase … above $17.50 where that handle in the weekly will be better defined.
Best to you all, and Go Cards! (and Big East in general).
