Poor hellbob. He's a sports widow.

Poor hellbob! This is the only time of year that I actually give a rat's ass about basketball. And because he was foolish enough to give me the info to join the March Madness bracket that one of his coworkers was doing there is potential monies on the line. So I actually care about the college basketball games going on. Right now I'm tied for 9th place w/3 other guys, but before today's games I was way down in 15th, so there's still hope. Also, None of my choices for the Elite Eight have been knocked out yet, so I've still got big points potential. A couple of the guys have already lost one of their picks for the championship game.

Since I don't actually follow college basketball, I need to use Girl Logic to make my bracket picks. Sometimes it works: "I went to Moorhead State, and Morehead State is spelled different and is in a different state, but I've never been to Louisville, so obviously i should pick Morehead." That logic? I was the only person in our 18 person group to pick Morehead over Louisville. LOL. And University of Connecticut? They go by UConn, pronounced You-con. My favorite alcohol? Yukon Jack. Of course I'm going to pick UConn. Especially since their mascot is an adorable husky.
Girl Logic hasn't worked for everything though. The X-Men are cool, and Charles Xavier leads the Xmen. But that wasn't enough to give Xavier a victory over Marquette. They should have used their mutant powers!

I also make picks based on "My friend likes that team." So tx_cronopio, your horny bull team needs to kick Arizona's butt tomorrow! Then they can beat Duke in the Sweet Sixteen, but unfortunately they have to lose to UConn in the Elite Eight. Sorry 'bout that.

    I saw this article last week, but hadn't gotten around to posting it yet. The TSA is encouraging people to view photographers with suspicion.…
