Mayor Shuts Down Government for NCAA Tourney


USA Today:

The Kentucky Wildcats play Saturday in the NCAA semifinals against Connecticut and, should they win, would play again Monday night in the national championship game.

Jeff Krauss, the mayor of Bozeman, Mont., isn’t taking any chances on the possibility of missing the title game.

Krauss, a die-hard Kentucky basketball fan, has canceled a Bozeman City Commission meeting scheduled for Monday so he won’t miss the game should the Wildcats advance.

“Everybody knows Kentucky basketball fans are lunatics and I’m no exception,” Krauss said Thursday, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle.
