It’s time for March Madness! Have you all filled out your brackets? The first round of the men’s tournament will be played this Thursday and Friday, March 17 and 18; and the first round of the women’s tournament will be this Friday and Saturday, March 18 and 19. I was checking out the odds to win the entire tournament and Gonzaga is favored to take it all the way; last year they lost to Baylor in the Finals. On the women’s side South Carolina is the team to beat, followed closely by Connecticut. I usually fill out a bracket on Yahoo but they only offer a men’s bracket. However, this year I’ve discovered a women’s bracket exists at CBS Sports, and if you are reading this on Thursday, you still have time to fill one out!
We are going to be seeing a lot of Major League Baseball trades right now as the players association finally came to an agreement with the league and ended the longest player lockout and offseason freeze in history. The teams are finally back together and spring training begins this Thursday with the season opener scheduled for April 7.
