A quick note to point out that regular readers of this space have a couple of different places to go to prove their capability in picking winners in the NCAA Tournament.
First is a challenge set up by a loyal commenter on here, Matty Simone, through ESPN.com. He has set up a league and invited anyone who wants to participate. Click here and the league name is Pac10rules and the password is bobc (Matt's doing, not mine). Looks like we are up to 33 members.
I'm also obliged to point out that The Seattle Times has its own on-line tournament challenge that you can find here. Prizes include $100 for the high score in each round and a 42-inch TV for the winner of the whole thing.

I think this tournament invite says a lot about UW's basketball program, especially being a #1 seed. We are viewed as being one of the four best out of the 16 teams that were invited, I thnk that is significant. After you exclude all 65 of the teams that had good records and/or successful conference tourneys, out of that remaining bunch of teams that are left we are one of the top 4 after you eliminate the other 32 teams that had average records or moderate success in conference tourneys, of that remaining group of teams that are left after the best 97 are invited elsewhere, we are one of the top 4 of that group. Which is no small accomplishment. Go Dawgs! Beat Valvanoriso!

I heard that the Screen Actors Guild is starting a new awards ceremony. Here's how it works, everybody who didn't get nominated for an Oscar or a Golden Globe gets "invited" to pay $10K and then they have a ceremony and pick a winner. Sounds pretty neat, huh? Plus, the chances of winning are increased due to the fact that many actors choose to just accept their failing and not pay the entry fee. I can't wait to see who wins! It will be so exciting!

It will be awesome when WSU fans have to eat crow next year, when the CBI is all their team is maybe invited to.
