Santa and My First Ever Bracket!

Although spring is but two days away and St Paddy's Day was yesterday - I am still stitching on my Santas. Confession here - I did break down and start a spring piece the other day.

Today finds me once again climbing Mt. Laundry and doing general housework, but tonight I get to go to my first ever genealogy round table. No idea what I am getting myself into with this. First time for everything huh? My sister and I are plotting our course to our first every county genealogy meeting on the 7th of April. Of course, that means we are dodging Garin's baseball and soccer practice/games.

This morning I decided to join in the Madness of March and try my hand at this bracket thing. I don't watch basketball and honestly don't care for it. But, once a joiner always a joiner.

According to my heavily researched and well thought out way of picking teams (read which had the shortest name in most cases unless I have actually heard of the sports program) I have UCLA winning it all. My final four are - Louisville, Arizona, Villanova, and UCLA. Poor Ohio State - I didn't have faith in them for basketball. Now if this were football - I'd have them coming in 2nd. Always the bridesmaid and never the bride. 

Ok, sports fans - am I even close to what will happen? Should I hurry to join the Quicken Loan Billion Dollar Bracket game? And how do you check to see how you are doing? 

Since the laundry is doing its thing and I have plans for the evening I better get moving with the rest of my day or else I'll sit here plinking away on the 'net. 

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

ps - thanks to the wonders of modern medical advancements and the fact I actually went to the doctor - I am feeling so much better and my cough has disappeared! :)

I love Santas! They work in any season! Good luck with the brackets. Here in Seattle , we are still rejoicing over the super bowl! I did get my Masters at Louisville so I suppose I should pull for them.

Your stitching looks fantastic. I filled out a basketball bracket too. I didn't do heavy research on it, and guess for the majority, by the games each team won. I picked Florida to win the whole thing. I did put Connecticut in the Final Four. If it was the women's, Connecticut will win all the way.

Love the santas!

Your Santa's are great. I filled out a bracket too, the second year. I have Florida winning the whole shebang, but secretly hoping Arizona will get in there since I live in Arizona! I filled out a bracket on ESPN.com. I read predictions of sports news talking heads and how teams did on their last two games. Good luck with your bracket!

Great Bracket - I do one every year - I do not do very well I always pick Syracuse all the way - this year my final four are Arizona, Louisville Villanova and SU... If you do well, then so will I
But I have Syracuse winning
