OMG … Let the Upsets Continue!

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!
