“Sports is a coffee break.”      —  Al McGuire

March Madness is here.  Although I generally find terms describing major sports and other events to be trite, I like that term.

As a resident of the Milwaukee area and a University of Wisconsin graduate, I, the author of Triumph Funding, extend our best wishes to the Marquette Golden Eagles, née Warriors, and the UW Badgers as they enter their respective conference tournaments and then the NCAA tournament.   Go Warriors!  Go Badgers!

Al McGuire, the former famed Marquette coach who guided Marquette to a national title in 1977, is quoted above.  The family did not identify the cause of death at the time he passed in 2001.  Nonetheless, it has been understood that he died following a long bout with leukemia.  Cancer, unfortunately, claimed another victim.
