So last week was championship week . . . . NCAA div. 1 men's basketball that is. March madness is in full stride at our house. I know this because for the first time this year (and not the last) Ryan was in a bad mood yesterday because his team lost. At first I couldn't figure out what was wrong but quickly remember just how into these games Ryan gets. And I shouldn't really be pointing the finger as some of you may know I get quite into it as well. After Dukes amazing first round loss last year (I foolishly had Duke going to the final 4) My bracket was shot - and I let everyone know it.

There is a buzz of excitement here today as it is selection Sunday which means that brackets will be available and ready to fill out. I know I will take part in a pool with Ryan and all his friends, but was thinking, "how much fun would that be to do with a bunch of blogger girls!" Now, I know this is not our typical cookie exchange, knitting party, coffee date, but I have a feeling it would be fun, and maybe bring out a different side of us.

Soooo, in the spirit of some friendly competition (and lets face it the games will already be on in some of our houses anyway) if your are interested in participating in a bracket pool just leave a comment and I will get something organized. Oh, and if you know nothing about the teams it is ok - they are actually ranked on the bracket so you don't need to know much about them in order to guess the outcomes.

Let the madness begin!!!!

I'm in! I was laying on the couch yesterday thinking about how excited I am that the tournament is about to begin. Good idea!

I know I'm not an official "blogger girl," but I am definitely in if I'm allowed. Yay - tourney time!

Ryan & Katie said...

Yay! I didn't know if I would have any participants!!! I was thinking there should be a prize . . . I will figure it out. And of course there can still be cookies, and 7 layer dip, and chips and salsa con queso . . . shall I go on??

I'm sorry to say that I don't follow it at all- unless I'm over at your house :) Matt isn't a basketball fan (which is ironic because it's the only sport I really can stand to watch- although I just usually don't). I'm in though- I mean, I'll guess :)
