The NCAA tournament champ

Just taking this opportunity to gloat for a moment... Today, I was awarded the traveling "Bracket Buster" trophy for winning our NCAA tournament company pool! Finally, after roughly 15 years of bitter defeat I came out on top. The cash haul was pretty decent considering we had over 100 participants. I also set a new all-time tournament record for overall points. My final four did not contain Michigan State, but I did have the other three - Illinois, Louisville and North Carolina with the Tar Heels winning the big dance.

Sam held her own up until the last week, as for the first two saw her hanging out in the top-10. She eventually lost her dark horse in Kentucky and fell about 20 spots - tough loss. Hopefully next year it will be her turn to buck the odds and become the NEW record holder.

Baby update: Both Sam and baby are doing well as we groove into week 17.
