Official Final Four Post
March may be over, but the madness continues. Illinois, UNC, Louisville, and Michigan State face off to see who will come home with the championship. Only three games left, and based on how the tournament has been going so far, they should all be good ones. Mich. St. is a strong program nobody should have overlooked. UNC is probably the most exiciting team. Louisville was slapped in the face with a #4 seed and are playing with a vengeance. But with Illinois, I have a feeling that they are a team kind of like the Patriots, where they can just steamroll the competition and regular rules of engagement. So they remain my pick to win, but hey, what do I know.

I did do pretty well on my bracket, if anyone cares. Three out of my four Final Four picks made it- Illinois, UNC, and Louisville. My fourth team, Kentucky, almost slipped in there as well. I did best with the Chicago bracket, only losing two games total. I also called Kentucky's mini-bracket perfectly. Unfortunately my Albuquerque and Syracuse brackets were a mess. I'm not sure how well that would stack up against the competition, I didn't enter into any online tourneys. I think that filling out brackets should be something fun, and if you spend more than 5 minutes on it, you're just going to end up endlessly out-thinking and second-guessing yourself, with the end result of picking games wrong. So why bother? And don't even think about gambling over something as unpredictable as the NCAA's. Talk about a huge money pit.

Alllll Byyyyy Myyself
While Sammy is out having fun in Europe, I get the whole apartment to myself. This may sound great, but the fact is it just gets really quiet and dull without anybody else around. I mean, there's just nothing going on, and basically my options are sit in the apartment, or go to the library. Not the most exciting way to spend your life. So with the weather improving later this week, I'm going to set the goal to spend as little time in the apartment as possible. It was cold and rainy today, so that really wasn't an option.

Lucky for me, next week looks like a real doozy. The fun starts on Monday, when I have to deliver a 5 to 8 minute speech for my Public Speaking class. Fortunately I've got most of the research done previously, but still organizing a good speech takes longer than you would think. Putting on a nice, fake smile will continue on Tuesday, as the Spring Job Fair comes to Halton Arena. I even got a new suit for it, so here's hoping that I will able to dress to impress. Then, Friday, the fun continues with a large, 10-page policy paper about British Missile Defense (or Defence, as it may be) for Trans-Atlantic relations. Ah, nothing like a huge report to close out the week. Somewhere in there I get to do some interviews and cover baseball for the school paper. Should be a lot of fun!

Bitchin'
I just got a large package in the mail today from Ayana, and all I can say is it's pretty sweet and full of Japanese consumer goodness. There's just a ton of goodness in there- haichews, instant udon bowls, capsule toys, more snacks, a weird rock CD, curry mix, issues of the Famitsu, the best magazine ever, even some mints for my dad. So it's really awesome and honestly I think that the box of stuff I sent to her doesn't even compare. It's about as good as it gets without actually being there. So thanks for the great stuff Ayana, it's going to be great having all these Japanese snacks again.

Lutz to Tennessee?
As you may or may not know, Bobby Lutz has been interviewed and is a candidate for the head coaching job at Tennessee. I first heard about this as a rumor a couple of weeks ago at cnnsi.com, but I didn't want to believe that it could be true. Lutz is a UNCC alum, reportedly makes seven figures, and has stated that this is his "dream job" in the past. Still, it's tough to turn down that SEC money. College basketball experts have been hyping him for a long time now, so it's no surprise big schools are starting to take notice.

If he goes, which may very well happen, former Tar Heels coach Matt Dougherty has been a name that's been floated around quite a lot to fill the vacancy. I think he ended up with a raw deal when he left Chapel Hill so I wouldn't mind him coaching the Niners. People say he's a jerk, but frankly, maybe that's what this team needs right now.

One not-so-nice rumor that I've heard is that Lutz and Tennesse have already reached a deal several weeks before, around say late February. This also coincides with the Niner's late season collapse- think about it, if you've got your mind on a new job, you're not going to focus on the one at hand. Now I hate to throw dirt a person who's been good for the school for so long, over something that is almost certainly not true, but it is something to think about if he gets the job.

So Much for "One Shining Moment"
Guess our came back in February. Charlotte loses again thanks to another second half collapse and this time there are no second chances. It was real dissapointing for everyone to go out this way, it seemed like we had a Sweet Sixteen team this year, but as usual Charlotte can't advance past the first round. I guess there's always next year- Atlantic 10, here we come.

My Apartment Stinks
No, it really does. Like a rancid yogurt factory. When I came home from the grocery store on Monday, I thought I would be mr. Time Efficient and bring in all of my groceries at once from the car. Genius I am, I put the gallon of milk that I had just bought in the crook of my arm so I could open the door.

I walk in, and then boom, there goes the milk out from my arm. Whoops. No big deal right, it'll just leak a couple drips and I'll get to it. Well, turns out there was a massive gash in the plastic, which rapidly emptied out almost all of the milk before I could put the groceries down and wipe it up. Still, I thought I got most of it up, and it didn't smell the next day, so I figured everything was ok.

Well, Wednesday, it hits us- the rancidly sweet smell of bad milk. It must have really seeped into the carpet, because after cleaning, vacuuming, and Febreze, it still stinks. Fortunately it was warm enough today to open up the windows, but I still haven't figured out how to get rid of the smell.

Free Time
Earlier I asked what would happen if my computer was broke. Well, the answer is, I still wasted the same amount of time, just in different ways. For example I ended up playing copius amounts of Xbox, and ended up watching Jeopardy a lot for some reason. Guess I just can't say no to the Tournament of Champions. I also watched a lot more TV in the morning, and let me tell you, those morning shows on the major networks really are atrocious. I'd hate to have that as a job, working among all those canned jokes and dull housewives.

Anyways, I did get my computer fixed, and I've had to install everything again. And wouldn't you know it, all I've installed is Mozilla, Itunes, AIM, VLC, and Real Player, and I've already got a ton of crap that got bundled with those programs on my computer that is running in the background, sopping up resources. Real player is especially notorious for this, I should have known better. Desktop weather updates, free games, wonderful pop up updates, It's really great that all this stuff gets put up on my computer, I love it. Why don't they just throw in Bonzi buddy while they are at it.

Problem is, if you want to use those programs, I don't think there are a whole lot of options, especially for the average user that doesn't know much about computers. We've all met someone who unknowingly has like two or three dozen extra programs, utilities, and viruses running in the background that they don't even know about. Guess we just gotta put up with it, or get eduacted, which we all know most people just don't have the time to do.
