Worst to First?

March 24th, 2016, 12:09pm by Jake







I would actually be OK with worst to worst, but that would require the Villanova & Virginia each lose their next game. Otherwise, one of the joke entries is likely to defeat my quirky yet earnest entry based on generally favoring teams of cities/ states/ campuses where I’ve been.

On the other end, I find myself in 19th place, unfortunately with the all too common pick of Kansas to win the whole thing. Picking North Carolina would put in a much better position to win. Still, I hold out hopes of finishing 6th for like the 8th time. How is everyone else doing in this & other pools? I have a good chance at Threepeating in my work “pool,” which is more of an auction for teams. Notre Dame, Wisconsin & Duke carry me into the Sweet Sixteen. I need about 2-3 more wins to guarantee my 3rd straight year of free food courtesy my coworkers.

Got a “new” server off of eBay — a mid-2010 Mac mini, same as my desktop computer. It replaces the mid-2007 Mac mini that has been our home (and web) server for many years. The “new” computer runs 10.11 just fine, and has 8 GB RAM and a 1 TB internal SSD drive — all for $400 on eBay. 

I didn’t get it expecting to have lots of new activity around here, but it’ll definitely be more capable of shipping media around the house. 

Now I think Jake has something to say about his performance in the NCAA pool — the 20th anniversary of the pool, if I’m counting right, with a winner’s value of over $2000!
