March Madness

Here we go again with the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Once again Sharon has organized the family competition on the CBS sportsline. There are about 18 of us participating this year: my husband, my son, four nieces, two nephews, two grand-nieces, five grand-nephews, one grand-fiancee, one grand-significant other, and myself. I hope that adds up to 18!

We've been doing this since 2004, and Sharon was the overall winner that year. In 2005 the winner was Steve - not sure who he is - he's a family friend of somebody's I think. Melanie won in 2006, and I was the big cheese in 2007. You can see that the women dominate! Could all 3 of those wins by females be flukes? Of course not!

We're off to a great start this year - I've already lost a game - I picked Kent State to beat UNLV. Oh well - it's always fun to see who will dominate and who will be upset. The bracket competition is great fun, win or lose!
