Maryland and Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé

Maryland breakdown - Strengths: Greivis Vazquez's confidence. Weaknesses: Oh how quickly that confidence turns to arrogance... Maryland's play seems to match coach Gary Williams' mercurial temper. And as Vazquez goes, so does the team. If he hits his shots, it'll be all rosy cheeks and bubbly kisses to the crowd. But Vazquez just might go cold. Be prepared for blood in the College Park water after Williams' team fails to get past the first round.

Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rosé - This is one of the best sparkling wines produced right now in the US. Just like Vazquez it is bright, rosy and bubbly. And just like Coach Williams, get this sucker too warm and the cork will fly out of the bottle. Be warned: too much of a good thing can get old very fast.
