    We already saw a couple big upsets yesterday with Baylor and Iowa State losing and Notre Dame nearly blew it all, but was able to pull out a win. No number one or two teams have lost yet and I wouldn't be surprised if all of the one and two seeds make it to the round of 32.

    Everyone seems to be picking Kentucky to win it all this year, but I am going to go out on a limb and suggest that Wisconsin will win it all. It's easy to pick Kentucky, but we haven't seen an undefeated team win it all for in nearly two decades and I just don't see it happening this year. I see Kentucky going to the Final Four, but I have a feeling that is as far as they will get.

    How is everyone's bracket doing so far? Mine is already out the window after Baylor and Iowa State's loses, but I have a feeling a lot of others are in the same boat. And who do you think will win it all this year? Are you going with the easy pick of Kentucky or rooting for someone else?

    Me and brackets get along just about as well as a lion and an antelope. I never get far at all. I am with you on Kentucky. I don't think they will make it to the end. Not because they don't have the skill to make it though. I just think they will gas out and lose the reigns. I am going to go with Oregon Ducks. It's a stretch, but I guess we'll see.

    Clay, Same here. I realize there are always upsets. It's just trying to guess where the upsets will be is difficult. In one poll/bracket I had SMU going far but - goal tending or not - took that away. I was hoping they would do well because their coach (Larry Brown) is an all time great. I've done about 8 brackets because I love basketball and it's free and somebody has to win. In most I have Kentucky winning but on a few I have either Wisconsin or Arizona winning. I try to pick some upsets because that's what reality delivers. This is definitely one of the best events of the year in sports.
    In my brackets:
    1. Wisc. over Louisville........ 4.Wisc., KY, Duke, Louisville
    2. Arizona over Providence ........ 4. Ariz., KY, Prov., IA St. ***
    3. Kentucky over Duke ........ 4. KY, Wisc., NC St., Duke ***
    4. Wisconsin over SMU ........ 4. Wisc., KY, Dayton, SMU ***
    5. Kentucky over Duke ........ 4. KY, NC St., Ariz, Duke ***
    6. Kentucky over Duke........ 4. KY, Ariz, Duke, Dayton ***
    *** Almost all of my final fours have Cinderella teams
    Warren Buffet and Quicken Loans aren't offering a Billion this year even though last years results proved it's a pretty safe wager (if you have an extra Billion)

    Big fan of Gonzaga this year. So in the only bracket I filled out, I had the Final Four going like this: Kentucky beating Arizona to advance. And Oklahoma falling to Gonzaga, having the Zags take on the Wildcats in the final.

    That being said, I still picked UK to win it all. As for upsets, I predicted NC State to make it to the Elite 8, which still could happen. But my Wyoming getting into the Sweet 16 turned out to be a bad call. So far though, I like my chances with all the rest.

    I change the station as soon as this nonsense comes on. I'd rather watch dumb commercials (and I do) rather any kind of sports related BS! Does this make me a closet Refublican like JC or just a deep thinker? ;)

    Neither do I; get kind of dizzy of all that running and throwing a ball in a broken net; kind of stupid if you think of it. At least American sports never caught on in Europe; soccer is the main game in town.

    No.... but I do believe your showing symptoms of "ARCHIE BUNKER" syndrome. You should either go to the Dr, office and get it checked out....OR, go buy a reclyner and a 12" televesion.....and start walking around in a robe pointing a gun at at the neighbors.

    Oh, in that case you're normal.

    I just quit my job yesterday and found another one as well. They had changed my route to the south bay area....including watts, compton, south central and south LA.
    that was it for me, I became Archie Bunker. I could'nt take it. Miles and miles of shit. Even stray dogs wont move out of the street. Incredible. Only in the ghetto will a dog lay out in the middle of a street and not move when you blow the horn. It's almost like they want you to run them over.
    All day,,,,, whores, run down houses, trash infested alleys, addicts, thieves, gang bangers...... What are all these savages doing out in the streets so early? because clearly, they're not looking for work. I delivered to all the smaller chain markets in the ghetto. Armed security at every store and strip mall.
    I had to call it quits. My boss didn't believe me....I said change my route or I'm out of here.....He said no. I left my truck running in the middle of the street....SEE YA
    I have to move out of here.

    PGR.....Massachusetts has to better than this. I may take this show on the road to portland or Seatlle.

    Hey the NW states have water. They also have snow though. Certain legality issues that may be to your benefit as well. After a long hard day you could truly relax. Houses for 60% less cost also. Less smog/pollution..... that may add a few years to your life span

    No doubt

    I spent a lot of time in the NW prior to prison. I don't think Jared would like me up in Portland. That would be two cool guys up there. One too many. I might get Jared to start a gang up there and eat Pocole and menudo. He just might even change his name...Yup,,,,to Jesus. The real mexican jesus

    I don't think that he would worry. Of course the restraining order would be in place quick. Take it easy. Imagine going to the dispensary and not looking over your shoulder...... Ahhhh.... America.
