Quote of the day
"They needed the game more than us. They were more upset than us and they are a great team. We are not playing against a second-division team in Asia. We are talking about the Heat." -- Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, after a 30-point loss in Miami
Perhaps the reports of the Miami Heat’s demise were greatly exaggerated.
On to Market Madness. This year I’ve once again been submitting a bunch of “pundit picks”, based on the public bracket selections of a number of different coaches, columnists, and analysts. I simply enter each of these brackets into the simulator, and use it to select an optimum set of selections. These won’t be prize eligible, of course, but will give you a chance to see how you fared against people like Tony Kornheiser or Michael Wilbon, for example. To that end, if you see any published bracket picks by any recognized “experts”, please send me a link to their bracket so that I can add them in.
Meanwhile, the baseball drafts for the RIBC and all four qualifying leagues are now underway. Here are links to each draft in progress:Pick rationales for the RIBC will also be posted at the forum. As usual, these will be lagged by two rounds, so those will start later today.
