    I am out - I have ZERO teams left.

    I had UConn going all the way.

    I have two in my office pool bracket - I managed to get the LSU vs. UCLA match-up right (I had UConn vs. Ohio State on the other side of the bracket). Out of the 62 people in the pool, a grand total of two have a champion pick (UCLA) that's actually still alive. The vast majority of us suckers had UConn or Duke.

    With that said, it's pretty cool to see George Mason in the Final Four...

    Working just a couple of miles from GM it seems pretty odd-its a quiet commuter school with pretty much zero umph or college town feel to it. Hell the Washington Post has interviews with students saying the did not even know they had a B-ball team.

    Im Heels fan but happy to see an underdog doing so well.

    But Mason? Wow ok

    Mid-Major George Mason made everybody take notice with their run.

    So, who had UCLA vs Florida for the championship game ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Yup, George Mason had an incredible and made Northen Virginia pretty damn proud. It was nice to see Mason getting the front page attention over the usual big boys in the area like Georgetown, Maryland, and in recent years, George Washington.

    I won the office bracket. I played with my heart and was the only one to have FLORIDA going this far - GO Gators!

    The lady that won our multi-office pool! So I got second, but she stomped us all with those last two picks and can obviously increase her lead if UCLA wins the whole thing.

    I don't follow sports but it sure was nice to see this morning that the Gators won last night!

    (I'm sure some of you guys woulda been a whoopin' and a hollerin' if it was a midwest team...but frankly, I don't know how to do that....)
