    So...
    for the last 20 years or so...
    or ever since I started creating a bracket for fun (or $)...
    the Zags have not won a championship.

    How crazy would it be if I did not do a bracket....???

    Should I or Shouldn't I? I have only a few hours to decide.
    ...and there definitely is no such thing as Prince Charming.

    Do it. No causality.

    but what if...
    what if...

    (sigh...could it be possible?)

    What if I am the jinx?

    I have found myself incapable of putting the zags anywhere other than #1. And yet, that position has eluded, teased, titillated us with complete rejection for 20 years.

    The Zags have made the tourney every year you’ve done it maybe? If you don’t do it this year, they might not make it next year.

    Nope. I didn't make one the first time they went back when I was a student...

    So this guy at work runs a bracket similar to the one here on GUboards. Everyone draws a name out of a hat and that is your team.

    I got UNC. Of all the teams to get, I got one I want to lose. Gonna see if I can convince one of the 9th graders to trade me for their pick. I'm sure I can convince the girl to give up a 4 seed for a 2 seed.

    It will be a “home” arena for me.

    Same deal for us, I go by the stadium on my way to work. We put in for the lottery but didn't win.

    When I went to Phoenix I bought my airline tickets a couple of months ahead. Fortunately I knew my parents would need there already so I figured I would just visit them if the Zags didn't make it. Saved myself a couple hundred bucks airline fare.

    Wow. Has been a bit since I last posted. Here’s my latest news:

    My son is a Badger now.
    I’m teaching Middle school (lord help me).
    I now have an Ice Castle. For those who don’t know what that is, picture Grumpy Old Men with an RV on their lake. Fishing is All-year long in MN.
    It’s still colder than a witch’s tittie. Winter came too soon.
