Let the Madness Begin...

Spring has nearly sprung and March Madness has officially begun. I still haven't had a chance to fill out my bracket yet; maybe there will be a lull at work today and I can do that.

Of course, I have a pretty lousy track record in bracketology. I always pick Duke to win (which, I have to admit, is usually not a bad way to go). And I have to pick my Crimson Tide to get pretty far into the tournament, at least past the first couple of rounds. As for the rest of the teams, I just go with my gut, and sometimes I'm surprisingly accurate.

There's a lot that I love about college basketball and the tournament, but probably what I like best is the fact that anything can happen. It seems that each year there's at least one team that emerges as the Cinderella of the tournament, and occasionally Cinderella actually wins it all.

At the end of the tournament, it will be interesting to see how my bracket's done...although sometimes I end up tossing it out by the second round.

I sure would like to see the Tarheels make it but... I wouldn't put any money on it!

As I told someone else today...I wish I cared. I would of course love to see our Bama boys go far, but I just don't ever watch....

If I keep living in a hospital room I may have to take it up though.
