Every time that milestones like these come along I remember just how long I’ve been here at SomeGoSoftly. March Madness is one of my favorite times of the year. It’s the 5th year I’ve hosted a bracket group over on ESPN’s Tournament Challenge. Half the friends and family that join me are less interested in basketball than me (MK only signs up via force), but they make me feel extra special by playing along.
I usually come in dead last or very close. This might be due to my interest in nothing but the Big East and Big 12. Or because I just guess at my picks. Or because I’m thinking about SXSW more. Whatever the reason, I still enjoy putting together some crazy picks and checking the standings after each round of games.
If you’d like to join us, search for “SGS’s 5th Bracktacular” (Brackets+Spectacular…) and holler at me here/email for the password! All are welcome, I’d love to see the group get bigger every year!
I guess I blogged it two years ago, but not last year. I must have done horribly…
This is more my speed…
That’s pretty awesome. I’m a little bummed no friends are signing up this year tho – today’s the last day to!
I just signed up – I’m pretty sure I have a good chance of getting at least one of my teams in the Final 4. Ha!
Awesome! My brackets remarkably resemble those that I watched Obama pick on Sportscenter this morning…
Does that mean it was taxing to do something that will fail in the end?
How socialist of you…I guess I’ll be bailing you out later.
Oh, and shouldn’t you be using McCain’s numbers?
Or his picks.
They didn’t give me his – I saw him on espn talking about how he’s gonna watch the games instead of working…
You’re bad at filling out brackets, it’s like the Special Olympics
I now have to write letters of apology to the schools that I picked to win. 😦
