299. Brackets, or in this instance, Lists.

It's March. March Madness. I'm not savvy enough to know how to put a set of brackets on here. So, you'll just have to follow the lists. I'm predicting a big year for our neighbor to the south of the 36/30 line.

FIRST ROUND

North Carolina
Arkansas
George Mason
Washington State
Oklahoma
Louisville
South Alabama
Tennessee

MIDWEST

Kentucky
Stanford

SECOND ROUND

EAST

REGIONALS

Pittsburgh loses to Texas
UCLA loses to Arizona

FINAL FOUR GAMES
Tennessee defeats Vanderbilt
Texas defeats Arizona

THE BIG GAME
In a game played in San Antonio, Texas, Tennessee defeats Texas in a game with a total of 191 points scored.

Go ahead and relearn the words to Rocky Top. We're going to be hearing a lot of it between now and April 7.

Here is a trivia question. Since the "brackets" began, what are the only two colleges originally and still eligible to be invited who still have never found their names on a Brackets page?

One final note. Our visitor-counter should trip over the 10,000 mark tonight or tomorrow. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Personal

Louisville, Kentucky, United States
Single, male, bald, overweight, early 50s, seeking . . . Oh wait, that's goes on the other website. How about this - never married, liberal Democrat, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
