Brackets, anyone?

Badgers, Packers, Mallards. Paddling, running, golfing. And bikes!

Well, Mr. _jeff is practically my neighbor, so he can always, I dunno, steal shit off my front porch like everyone else apparently does if I try to go light on the payoff.

SHOULD I lose, of course, which I won't.

As for you, G, you're now unofficially officially booked for next Friday. I'm on schedule to become the unholy godfather to my niece this weekend.

And Right Bower is off to a commanding one point lead after the first 3 games. A lot of us picked Butler myself included.

Muthafeckin' BYU! Them goddamn Mormon's always screw me over. I pretty much always pick against them, until this year of course. They're turning into my new Arizona(another team I seemingly always pick incorrectly).

The number one seeds just put on a show. Cal just let me down. Hope MD doesn't keep this up against Memphis. The way they played against CS Fullerton doesn't make me feel good.

They let me put my existing bracket within tdp's, so I'm a late entry. Two Big Ten losses, but I picked all the other games.

I had the Illini going all the way to the elite eight. Ouch. If I paid more attention, I would have seen that Chester the Molester was out for the season.

Although I only won 11 on the openning day, I am optomistic as a bunny in a rocket ship. (what ever that means)

Shit. I picked Tennessee AND Utah St. 3 points separate me from notoriety (or 5 points, I guess, but who's nitpicking?).

A team named Dayton playing in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Could fate ever not shine on the Flyers in a circumstance such as this?

TC-ers, am I wrong?

WV's been shooting ice cold all day. If not for that this wouldn't even be close. Hope they can turn that around here for the last few minutes.

You can say that again. Although, it's somewhat liberating to be knocked out of contention on the first weekend; now I can root 100% for the teams I want to win, rather than those I need to win.
