NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament And Some Announcements.

Before I write about the tournament A few announcements.

We had yet another post on the 4 year old Lee Stoneking thread. This one stating that it sounded as if we had an axe to grind. Which is a funny accusation coming from somebody posting on a 4 year old thread.

I noticed we had a new follower so I'd like to welcome our latest follower Meg Dolan! Now this blog has... get this 4 followers! This is her photography blog give it a visit.

I will not be able to do any live tournament blogging during Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. I know those are usually the most exciting days with upsets and whatnot. However I am going in to what I like to call hiding for 3 days. Just checking in to a nuthouse for those 3 days (actually a hotel just wanted to see if you were reading) I need to have a few days of quiet and alone time and with the basketball on that nobody in this house enjoys it just seemed like a good time to do it. The original plan was to check into Ameristar Casino but I scraped that because while the rooms would be cheaper I can't afford to lose what I could very well lose at a casino in 3 days. You tell yourself you won't go down to the Casino anymore and 20 minutes later guess where you are? I know, I've done it.

Now on to the Tournament.

Warning do NOT take my advise on these picks! I don't you shouldn't either. These picks are for entertainment purposes only.Although a few years back I won the Newshounds off-topic basketball pool beating out Keg. Not sure she has forgiven me yet.
