The NCAA tournament starts tomorrow and I have my picks made. I made them at Yahoo! because it was easy, and while I can't link them for you to see, I'll get some screen caps and put them in my next post so you can see my bracket in detail should you be inclined. (Blogger … Continue reading NCAA Basketball Tournament
Ouch. My predictions for the NCAA Basketball tournament have not gone well. I think I'll skip the putting up of a bracket. The horror might be too much for those with weak consitutions.
It's that time of year again. That wonderful, magical time that gets UW coaches in trouble.I've filled out my bracket, and you can check how well I'm doing here. (I really hate Yahoo! But it is free.) This year, unfortunately, they don't seem to allow anyone to link to my actual bracket unless they are … Continue reading Mad As A March Hare
So I was thinking that the season wasn't going to go well for the Sonics when they lost their first game by 30. And I suppose it still might not go well.

Still. Fun times. Except the Sonics look to be the doormats of the NBA. Season opener against the LA Clippers last … Continue reading Break out the peach baskets

The Cardinals won their decisive game 7 over the Astros, beating Roger Clemens (former Yankee) and sending him and … Continue reading Sports, Sports, Sports
Haven't blogged much sports stuff lately; I've been occupied with other things and haven't watched any television in weeks. A quick re-cap of what's been going on is probably in order.Tampa Bay Lightning win Stanley Cup. (yawn) Tough to get excited about a hockey team from Florida. Sure, great offence, talented players, but really. Tell … Continue reading Sports Roundup
Here's a rundown of a conspiracy theory I can get behind. What is it?

I think this will suffice for my official excuse for why … Continue reading Bad Tournament Seeds
