It has been a month since I've written. But instead of updating you with something meaningful just now, there is a timely matter at hand that is not so serious. I know that most of you are excited about March - you know, with it being Colon Cancer Awareness Month. I'm certainly doing my part by being quite well aware of it. But while you've been celebrating CCAM, you may not be as aware that March is also the time for NCAA hoop madness.

Last year a bunch of folks joined the 1st Annual Greg's Place Bracket Challenge. Some were basketball experts. Others had no clue. In fact, Hannah knows nothing about it, but last year was one of the leaders after the first day of the tournament, ahead of too many male ESPN addicts. In the end, my boss Gary won the deal. (no, I didn't rig it for favors) Can he repeat this year? You can help me prevent it if you fill out your bracket - whether you know what you're doing or not.

It is easy to fill out a bracket. Just click on who you think will win each game. Hints (1) The lower the seed, the better the team. (2) You have to fill out the whole chart, not just the first round. (3) The person who picks the winning team of the final game is very likely to also win the bracket challenge (like last year), and the tiebreaker will likely go to the one who picks most of the final four.

If you want to play, just click here. You may need to know the following:

Don't delay, the window to fill out your bracket ends in 2 days and 12 hours.

Your Tournament Pick'em Commissioner,

I think you need a Yahoo account to join. If you don't have one, it's easy. Just go to and get an account. It's useful to have one, anyway.
