    I knew I should have put the teams on a dart board and pick them that way....

    Looks like Tranplanner is in the most trouble....one of his Final 4 is gone. :-P

    Well... unless every other team drops out other than the ones I picked... I have no chance of winning. Since 3 of my final four are out, and my championship game is not going to happen.

    I have 3 of 4 left as well, however, Kentucky was to play in the championship game.

    I don't think there is much hope left for me
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Now, now, that's a little harsh. In my office pool, about 2/3 had Kentucky, Stanford or Gonzaga comprising large segments of their Final Four. Of all the years I've organized our pool, I have never seen so many players basically "eliminated" going into the sweet sixteen. A little luck here and there -- a Nevada, a Seton Hall, a UAB -- and you can set yourself up nicely.

    I'm pretty happy to have 136 points still possible

    I actually picked Tech and UConn to play in the final. Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while. At this time I would like to thank all those that made this moment possible: Billy Packer, Dick Vitale, USA Today (those team capsules are great!), ESPN, the fact I watch way too much college basketball and of course NHPlanner for setting up the whole thing on Yahoo!. While I won the Cyburbia Challenge, I'm only in 8,426th place overall. Hey NHPlanner, are you gonna buy me a beer in DC for winning?
    He's a planner, he's a dreamer, he's a sordid little schemer,
    Seems to think that money grows on trees . . .
