I'm waiting for Obama to release his bracket before I fill mine out, but I'm sure I'll be enjoying another bucket of beer at next year's WCC tournament! Cheers!

So Rochin54, have you found a sports bar in Shanghai that will have the games?

From the Sun Sentinel:
Asked about his NCAA Tournament memories, Eric Spoelstra moved past his time at the University of Portland.

"I have memories of filling out the brackets," he said. "I won the bracket, our office bracket, I think three or four years ago, the video-room bracket, and all I remember about that is I didn't get paid."
Really, he moved past his time at UP?

As Eric didnít get paid after winning his bracket, I'll donate all my winnings to the poor guy on April 2nd. Razz

I will renew the prize of a bucket of the finest Bud or Bud Light that the Orleans has to offer, for this year's winner.

It was a pleasure helping Blacksheep empty said bucket. Cheers!

Wanna trade? As much as I love basketball, especially this time of year, I'll trade my BIG screen plasma for a roundtrip to Shanghai! Razz

Got my picks in! BTW - the latest is that Fab Melo the SYRACUSE center has been declared academically ineligible for the rest of season. It affected my brackets.

I knew you'd eventually be back, MP1. We've all been awaiting your insight into this year's brackets.

BTW - I didn't have Syracuse anywhere near the final four with Fab Melo. Smile

Good luck to KK when USD takes on CSUN; she looked good in Las Vegas.

Here is a bracket that was completed using the APR scores to pick each winner. Neither SMC or GU advanced in round 1, but BYU nade the Elite Eight. The Big East did not fare well; ND won only round 1, West Virginia Shocked won two rounds, nobody else advanced. Harvard did not get past Texas Suspect , and four Big 12 schools made the Sweet Sixteen, with Kansas winning it all. Check it out. I heard about it on the radio, and Coach Rev posted the link on Twitter.

22 signed up so far.... Still have til tomorrow to sign up for those that haven't yet. Riches and glory await the winner. Or beer from Pilot Nut and an autographed basketball head mask signed by Mesa. (I cannot back up any of those prize claims.)

Obama's bracket is out http://games.espn.go.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/en/entry?entryID=4267886

He went out on a limb this year and picked 2 number 2 seeds for the final four. Sweet 16 has all top 4 seeds and only one 3 seed making the final 4.

For a President who is not known for being conservative, his brackets sure are Twisted Evil
