Bracketology, BABY!

And so it begins. The McIllece family trash talkin' survival of the fittest, free-for-all that we know as braketology. We're filled out, submitted and ready. All for bragging rights and the honor of having this in your home for a year. Get the packin' tape out Dave, it's coming home to Spokane this year. Let the games, BEGIN!

Just as a side note, I always fill out my brackets on paper before we submit them to our group online. And I always fill them out in Sharpie marker...so there is no second guessing, no questioning of the gut. And this year, the Sharpie color was gold. Premonition? Perhaps, my friends. Perhaps.

I like your confidence! I, on the other hand, use pencil and mull over it a bit. I love this tournament!
