NCAA Tournament

What excuse do I have for dutifully filling out my brackets every year? It's not as if I follow basketball, or bet real money on games....It's done each year because it's a March Rite of Passage, like trying on last year's swimsuit and hoping whatever weight gain happened in the past few months isn't evident. Also, keeping warm because Spring doesn't seem to want to come!

This year, it's something that doesn't involve the dead hand of politics, which has gotten irredeemably nasty and upsetting and all-encompassing. That's another point. Finally, we go into the Area of Annoying Alliteration: Sweet Sixteen, Final Four, Elite Eight, and so forth. Some people like that.

Anyway, here's my Final Four: Gonzaga, Louisville, Villanova, and Kansas. I look for 'Nova to beat the Cardinals for All the Money.

Personally, I like the Zags Bulldogs. They have a cute, fierce mascot.

Those were good choices for the Final Four. It's rare that a longshot goes the distance. I see the Louisville Cardinals winning this year.

I know and care even less, sis!

No bracket player here either.

I haven't filled out a bracket in quite some time, nor have I looked at a spring fitting of last year's swimsuit as a rite of spring.
However, I am willing to offer an opinion (to anyone looking for one) on brackets or swimsuit fittings!

Basketball? I'm still mourning the passing of Meadowlark Lemon.

It looks like it won't be Villanova. My bracket is so busted!

Monday - Now Duke is out! I'm a lousy picker of basketball.
