March Madness: UConn Huskies Beat the Kentucky Wildcats, Because of Course They Do

We knew the outcome of this Dog vs. Cat game like a year ago, because, Dog vs. Cat -- duh.


Last night, the Connecticut Huskies defeated the Kentucky Wildcats 60-54 to take all the marbles. We could have told you that result days ago, weeks ago. Dogs vs. cats, you see.
