trsidn, just realized you've quoted me in your sig. Wow, that sounds weird out of context

Now, I have no idea what March Madness is, but those of you who do might be interested in this: http://projects.wsj.com/blindfold-brackets-2012/

Never mind. Metro State beat CSM. I guess I'll have to go with the second college I went to now. Go Metro State Roadrunners.

Yes, it does sound weird. That's why I used it


March Madness is the nickname for the mindless media hoopla surrounding the NCAA basketball tournament.

I thought Caesar might have a shot at going all the way. However, there's this other guy, Brutus, who's looking pretty good for the middle of the month.

Cal Tech! Better yet, Cal Poly! (salutes alma mater)

... okay, Stanford? (salutes employer)

*thinks about Ruben's previous post*

Wait, is there even a Universidad de Puerto Rico and are they in the NCAA at all?

Sure enough, UPR Mayaguez is NCAA Div II.
