Well, pretty much a train wreck for Nova and my bracket.

If anyone else wants to offer a prize, please post by this Saturday. Once final placing is determined, please draft prizes (or pass) in finish order and work it out with the prize provider. I will not be moderating this process.

The Nova loss cascaded through my bracket coupled with the Xavier wrecking ball took myself (and a lot of others) out. Still could finish tied for second which would be a big comeback from 12th at one point.

Btw, the Warren Buffett Challenge winner got through the first 29 games this year for a $100,000 payday. He was 31-1 after the first round vs a field of 96,000 Berkshire Hathaway employees. Top prize for a perfect bracket is a cool million a year for life.

Something like 657 brackets out of 18.8 million total brackets through ESPNs site got the Final Four right...Very difficult odds of doing well enough to get a million a year for life!!

I'm going to choose the stamp from ladybugsmom. I just have to figure out what I want carved. I'll be in touch via AQ mail.

I don't know how you do it...

Hehehehe!

Now to pick from one of these!

Sir B:
I will put up as a prize the choice of a) a yes/no question on one of my boxes (useless :)); b) a clue from my 1998-1999 shoebox from Southern New England, or c) a stamped copy of the first edition of my book (useless :)).

I am so intrigued by b

And I'll assume a includes MOD

Yet c is the only sure payoff

Ha. Nice. I hope you didn't get tackled by some drunk guy behind you. People are vicious at those games. When we were kids, we always brought our gloves to Paw Sox games in the hopes of catching a ball, but our parents would not let us push, fight, etc over balls that didn't come right to us. When I finally got to see games at Comerica Park and Fenway Park as an adult, I was a little embarrassed for the adults who were literally pushing each other out of the way and grabbing balls out of each others hands. So silly.

Years ago when my daughter was 4 (now 30) I brought her to a Red Sox game. I know the game can be a little boring for a 4 year old so I told her is she ever wants to leave just say the word and we will go. In the fourth inning I got the word. After heading out we were walking down Lansdowne Street. I was still following the game because the Red Sox were up. As we were turning the corner by the Cask and Flagon heading towards Kenmore Square, I heard a roar from the crowd. So I looked up at the net above the Green Monster hoping to see a ball land softly there. As it turned out a ball came over the roof right towards us. It bounced in the street and after one hop on the hood of a parked car I fielded it cleanly. I was recording it on my VCR and I later learned it was a Tom Brunanski towering foul ball over the left field roof that I was fortunate enough to grab.

For those who need a reason to follow along with all the college bowls coming up (perhaps a noxer can’t tear themselves away?) check out the postal pool run by FORAYCH. College Football Bowl Pool 2017-2018

Winners get some truly clever and creative postals and stamps. The rest of us get the excitement of even the most insignificant matchup transformed into A do or die adrenal booster.

I have been enjoying College Women's Softball, with another couple weekends left. Go Ducks!!!

I then will fully focus on football and really hope Coach Cristobal gets the Ducks going in a better direction AND sticks around for more than 50 weeks!

So Trae Young (Oklahoma U’s top five can’t miss draft pick) played in his first summer league game. Played Memphis. Jevon Carter (WVU) picked him up 94 feet from the tap. Totally frustrated and shut him down. His first half he was 0-9 from the field with three air balls and a couple of turnovers. Looked like a BIG XII beat down for him again.
The next night Utah’s first round guard pick (Grayson Allen of Duke) had to rest after one whole game. To rest or avoid being embarrassed by Jevon!
Jevon can make some shots and is a good penetrating distributor. So far the team is sending him to the corner in case they need his three or he comes and bails out the team when the shot clock is close.
