    Heading to the Final Four, coachv29 has grabbed the lead in our bracket contest, though Marc Bryan Jacob is looming large with San Diego State as his champion and Jherb can still steal it with UConn. GL, guys. Basically, if SDSU & UConn lose in the Final Four, coachv29 is our champ. If San Diego State wins and UConn losses, Marc Bryan Jacob would clinch. If FAU and UConn meet in the title game, Jherb would jump to the top with a UConn win, but coachv29 would still win if FAU cuts down the nets:

      Doesn't seem right that the team I picked to win it all loses on the first day of the tournament and I could still win the pool. Pretty sure the basketball/gambling gods will not let that happen, but as always thanks for doing this and thanks for the fun.

        Ya my bracket was busted early afternoon on 1st Thursday. Like Fezzik I liked Purdue. And had Huggybear 1st gm. And then got tripped up by Furman.

          Heading into the championship game, coachv29 is clinging to the lead but barring another pandemic to cancel Monday night's game or World War III, this comes down to Marc Bryan Jacob (San Diego State) vs. Jherb (UConn) for our title:

            Who is with me... I would love to c this gm played right after 60 minutes on Sunday night. Like last night would have been perfect following the women on ABC. Play the semis Friday night. Who's with me? And play the CFP on the first Saturday night in January when the NFL gets through with Saturday. I just like the anticipation of a whole day which is an off day for most people. Who's with me?

              I agree 100%!! And I have always said the Super Bowl should be played on a Saturday... But, we are getting closer to the year of them hosting the SB on the weekend of Presidents Day, which would give most Monday off, lol

                  I was fortunate no one else had UCONN in the contest.
                  the rest of my brackets were not very good. I did have a bet on UCONN winning the west bracket plus the tourney winner. Considered hedging the last two games but ultimately did not , so overall made money on the tournament.

                  Now on to the masters not sure what my plays are yet looking at the weather , the longer hitters may have a big advantage.

                  Also playing horses this weekend, first and foremost I'm a degenerate horse player, and i will be wearing my VFV
                  tee shirt at saratoga race course. Hope to see The two phils continent there all healthy and happy rooting for you.

                      Dave - got the shirt for the Bowl Contest - THANKS!

                      I wore it once already and was not shocked when all sorts of hot babes came my way saying they only did so because of the shirt :-)

                        Hey, Winky, you're very welcome -- but you're not fooling me -- you've always been a ladies' man!!!

                        But, seriously, the Charlie Harper-inspired VFV shirts have always been babe magnets. I had to stop wearing them so often because my wife would get jealous with all the groupies around ;-) Enjoy!

                          I am a ladies man. As long as they receive their monthly payment from me - I am all theirs!
