For trenchant, insightful analysis of yesterday’s b-ball action, you’re gonna have to go elsewhere. All I can say is that a few more upsets like last night’s Georgetown debacle will have our own dsabler, brigitte19, boyski and OhioRules running the table! And how about Murray State? ODU? St. Mary’s?
afboyny23 … sorry for your loss. Who else had Georgetown in the final? Anyone?
So, as things stand now, boyski is at the top of our brackets (and #611 in the tournament as a whole). Savor it, boyski … fame is fleeting! Murraydewd and POTUS are nipping at your heels … as are all the rest of us (more or less) with a looonnnggg way to go!
Today the men finish out their first round and the women start up tomorrow – when the men begin their round 2. POTUS’ picks are added to our group … looks like he was pretty conservative. (Probably playing it safe ’til healthcare goes through). I wonder if Michelle did brackets, too??? Gotta check that out. Here’s some Baracketology …
In other, extremely random, news … here’s a listing of upcoming concerts by Sarah Jarosz … she is amazing! If I’m free on 5/22, I’m getting myself to Cambridge!
For Breakers fans, here’s Tiffany Weimer’s blog … as she adjusts to Boston …
… and here’s Alex Scott’s blog, as she embarks on season #2 with the B’s!
The Breakers have trimmed their roster to 24 … to be followed by final cuts that will take it to 18. Here’s who’s left as of right now … still bumming about MFM!
