I am going to submit this bracket, and I don’t care.
I’m still picking Syracuse to win.

Syracuse’s Warrick named Big East player of the year
NEW YORK (AP) — Hakim Warrick, the second-leading scorer and fourth-leading rebounder in the Big East this season, was selected the conference player of the year on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-8 senior forward, a preseason All-America, was chosen in a vote of the league’s coaches.
Al Skinner, who led Boston College to a share of the regular-season title with Connecticut in the Eagles’ last season in the Big East, was chosen the coach of the year.
Warrick led the Orange, who finished third in the league, with averages of 22.1 points and 7.6 rebounds. One of the country’s best dunkers, he is shooting 55.3 percent from the field and has scored in double figures in 57 straight games.
He is the third Syracuse player to win the honor, joining Derrick Coleman in 1990 and Billy Owens in 1991.
It is the second time Skinner has been chosen coach of the year. The other was in 2000-01 when the Eagles also went 13-3 in the league. Boston College, a charter member of the Big East, leaves for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.
Sophomore Josh Boone of Connecticut was chosen the defensive player of the year, the third straight season a Husky won the award. Emeka Okafor was the defensive player of the year the last two seasons.
Rudy Gay of Connecticut and Jeff Green of Georgetown were chosen co-rookies of the year, while Jared Dudley of Boston College and Marcus Williams of Connecticut shared Most Improved Player honors.
Senior Josh Pace of Syracuse won the Sportsmanship Award.
It’s funny. Now that SU has lost, I don’t care at all about the tourney. Good luck St Joe’s, UCONN, and Duke!

Man, It has been so nice outside the past few days it makes it so hard to concentrate on what’s going on inside. Tonight i’m going to Beardslee Castle in Little Falls to see REZI and I’m looking forward to that. It’s going to be sweet, here is a picture of the place from their site.
I somehow misplaced my cell phone charger last weekend, no clue, so I broke down yesterday and bought a car charger for it. The damn thing was dead so it hadn’t worked for a few days, but now its up and running with 2 out of 3 bars of juice. Tonight I’ll be able to juice it all the way with this drive to LF. Looking forward. Will also be watching the Syracuse basketball game. Peace
