End of Basketball Glory

Well, I started off well. 10 out of 12 picks the first day of the NCAA tournament. The only teams I still have right are Uconn and UCLA (and UCLA is playing right now and Uconn plays tomorrow). So I was only 2 out of 8 in the quarterfinals. Not too good.

In other pathetic basketball news. I played in a church league tournament this afternoon. My team lost all 3 of its games, by an average of about 18 points. I don't remember scoring a point today. They say basketball is fun. And it is. But I guarantee it is a lot more fun when your team doesn't get blown out, and you can score a dang basket. I guess God called me to the right vocation:)

first day of the madness

Last year was the first year that I can remember not filling out the NCAA Tournament brackets. This year I jumped back in, and have enjoyed watching parts of some games today.

I think this may have been my best first day ever.

If Washington wins tonight I will have finished the day 14 for 16.

I had Oklahoma and Syracuse winning. Syracuse will hurt a little becuase I had them going to the sweet 16 - but I am looking good so far.

Tomorrow I am going with the higher seeds all the way around except Northern Iowa over Georgetown and S. Illinois over West Virginia.

What are your picks for the final four?
