So far so good. And we have no money riding on this why? Or wine? Or a bag of chips? Come on...give me something if I pull this off!!!

And the path to drunken poverty continues... Java's Stash at CT

  • Wine.woots: um, lost count.
  • Other woots: um, lost count too. I might have a problem.

....2nd. And that's where my run ends. Congrats, Java! You've pretty much got it in the bag at this point.

Yarp, that Kentucky loss did me in. Best I can do now is 2nd place.

Still a few people in the hunt though. It's going to be a tense Final Four!

Ha!

I think I can win, but ONLY if South Carolina beats North Carolina in the final. That's the least likely scenario (according to Vegas), so the odds are not good. There are a lot of Gonzaga picks that have to be eliminated first.

Congrats!

Finished 2nd in my work bracket too, same circumstances came down to NC or Gonzaga as to who would win. Only difference is that league had $100 riding on it.
