@realjohnboy,
I'm thinking about it. Then I saw the show with the President's picks and ESPN called it Barak-etology. I think I threw up a little in my mouth.

Has he got nuttin else to focus on? I like having such a human Prez (likes jazz, likes sports, pets, music. intelligent discussions), but seriously...is this a slow news day? Have you got things buckled down that well? Ummmm? NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Shoot now I politicized this. Carry on...ignore me.

@realjohnboy,
Rush Limbaugh was saying that Obama is a wuss for picking the teams he did.

I dont think that Obama is gonna get Blimpos vote.

@farmerman,
I'm so out of it. Rush is still on the air? Is he on XM satellite or regular broadcasting?

Obama's picks were so safe. There were no surprise upsets, either.

@Ragman,
Temple beat PEnn State. Penn State has made it toNCAA for the first time I believe. Temple could be a sleeper.

@realjohnboy,
I was so disappointed that Princeton didn't pull it off this year. Another nail biter. (((sob)))

So far my bracket is in reasonable shape.

Here's a nice analysis by Nate Silver showing why it sucks to be a number 8 or 9 seed.

@engineer,
Hah, last I looked at the NYTimes bracket thing, I have more points than Silver - his is shown in Staff Picks. I trust that won't last. So, far, I've (me myself and I) have lost six games.

Oops, just checked. Now we're tied at 110.

@ossobuco,
Meantime, anyone know when the date of the last games is?
NYTimes becomes costly (for more than 20 looks at articles a month) on the 28th.

My Southeast bracket gets destroyed if UCLA loses to Florida.

@realjohnboy,
My soul gets confused if UCLA wins; that's my school and work place, and I chose them for the earlier round but picked florida for this one. It'd serve my disloyal heart right..

At this point I'm doing quite badly. I'd picked W. Virginia..

@ossobuco,
Butler (an 8th seed) takes out Pittsburgh (a 1 seed) in the SE regional.

@realjohnboy,
That's a devastating blow to by bracket. Had Pitt go to the final.

@tsarstepan,
I'm not smart enough to figure it out, but not good.

@realjohnboy,
If Arizona can pull out the game over Texas, I'll stay in the top two million on ESPN.com. Ain't lookin' good, though.

On the New York Times bracket site, I've advanced somehow to the level of 7621 players, scoring 211 of 323 points. This is quite dismal but my best so far.
