An Unlikely Source For A Broadway Music Tribute?

I have two music subscriptions–Spotify and Sirius XM. The majority of my XM listening is to the Vegas Sports Information Network (VSIN), a channel devoted entirely too sports gambling. That is probably 90 percent of my XM use. The other 10 percent is still mostly Outlaw Country, the station started by Steven Van Zandt several years back.

College Basketball Power Rankings

It’s college basketball tournament time, with the conference tournaments underway, and March Madness right around the corner. I will not be making my annual trek to Vegas this year, as I have a Boston work trip next week. And Illinois did not get anyone with mobile betting up just yet, which means if I want to make any legal wagers, I’m driving to Indiana again. Still, I finally got a chance to sit down and work on some power rankings. I have a top 64 for now.
