March Madness is almost upon us. I am not an expert by any means and I donít watch every college basketball game that comes across the TV. I have not watched a complete game this season. Certain of my place as a lousy prognosticator, I weigh in anyway. In the absence of any dominant team this year, I like one of the traditional toughies to win the championship. When tournament time rolls around, the great coaches and great talent makes the difference, regardless of how many games they may have lost during the season. I like Duke or Kentucky, especially if they end up in the same regional, which would almost assure that one of them will be in the Final Four.
Blog of the day here.

Syracuse came through for me Monday night. I had no particular reason to pull for them other than they helped me out on a pool. They probably won because every fiber of my being thought Kansas would win. I have found sometimes that genuine resignation improves my luck. It must be genuine, however.
CrabAppleLane is enjoying an upsurge in visitors, quite possibly because of our listing on GreyMatter. Usually, we don't get this many visitors until football season starts. Hope the new visitors (The ones from Finland, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic must be scratching their heads) are enjoying what they see. Although attracting large numbers of visitors to the site has never been a priority of CrabAppleLane (No commerce here yet), it is still fun to see that people are finding their way here on their own with the very little energy I put into that effort. Thanks to all of you.
Still alive in the CrabAppleLane NCAA Pool. Just barely though. I need Syracuse to win the championship. I don't think any team can stop that runaway train of Kansas, though. The Aaron's 499 at Talladega is running today. Short entry this morning. Lots of yardwork to do before going to a company picnic later today.
The NCAA Men's Basketball Finals are tonight. I am pulling for Syracuse for quite corrupt reasons but I think Kansas is going to win easily.
French Quarter Fest is this weekend. I cannot believe they've been doing it for 20 years now. We went to the first 3 or 4 but have not been since. That will change this Friday, weather permitting.
