    Absolutely the NCAA tourney. Can't wait. Nope, I have not allowed myself to choose favorites yet. Generally, I wait for the brackets before I dig into it.

    To be honest, since my team is crap and will not be in the tourney (Illini), I find myself very curious about Witchita State.....
    Yes, I know their schedule is soft, still, they are good. Good enough to win? Not likely - but remember how far they went last year...

    The best part about this tournament is the "Cinderella" team.. Always some small school coming out of nowhere to beat the big name schools.

    I really believe the NCAA champion will come from Arizona and the Pac 12.

    Will Jabari Parker carry Duke to the final 4? He should be drafted in the Top 5 by the NBA.

    I'm really hoping the Milwaukee Bucks pick him up. And find a new owner.

    Here's how I won the pool I was in last year and will do it again this year: I fill in my bracket before selection Sunday by just picking seeds. I don't go chalk all the way. Pick one or two 12's to beat 5's, etc. Then once the teams are announced, I fill them in. It's pretty cool how it works...

    Yep! At least it's kinda guessing. Just go by seeds which is what happens most of the time anyway.Try one for fun and then spend the time to figure out all the games on another bracket and see how they compare.

    I haven't done a bracket since high school. I'm a major homer; I closely follow my home team, and I don't have much interest in the rest of the league.

    So GO BADGERS!!!

    That's my problem, Truder...love my Colorado teams way too much to be objective, much less follow the rest of the country. Anyway, love watching the tourney just for the drama of it all.

    I'm looking forward to the baseball season. Baseball is pretty boring, but I love that your team plays pretty much every night, so there's always something to watch.

    And going to baseball games is incredibly fun, especially Brewer games at Miller Park

    I actually like both, but definitely am more of a fball and baseball guy. We dont have pro teams here, but I used to live in Williamsburg Va and got to see a few O's games at Camden yard. Awesome...

    And I agree, baseball has more of a "boring" feel, but some games have that slow burn intensity too, even though it's slightly boring at the same time. Take for instance the FSU and NC State game last night. Went into extra innings and you knew the whole time the next run would probably be it. They had played a double header, first one was 3hrs and 45 mins, second went almost 5.5 hours. Long day.

    Baseball is so much better live. Nothing like a Cards/ Cubs night game. When I go I usually get a hotel room because I'm hammered after the game. Lol

    Being an "older" fart, I'll be going to my 30th college reunion in STL in April, and will be going to a Cub/Cards game on Friday night, 4/11.

    Well my pre-selection Sunday blank bracket is now complete. Based on what I filled in previously just based on seeding, my Final Four ended up being (2)Michigan vs (1)Arizona / (1)Virginia vs. (4)UCLA with a rerun of the Pac 12 tourney final AZ vs UCLA for the championship. This time AZ wins! Chances of a PAC 12 final are slim, but Sprkeng will like it! This should be interesting!
