Cast your eyes to the left of this entry, squint real hard, and you will just be able to make out my rank in the office NCAA tourney pool. My team is Pajama Friday (the name is courtesy of a moment in the office last spring — rookie intern yielding comic gold — you know who you are, Goobers), and the rank, is ONE. Numero Uno. Granted — I'm sharing it with a few other people, but it's a moment of pride for me, before more Cinderallas and Giant Killers stomp all over my bracket. People — share your pride — share your defeat — share your Schaden -DUKE- freude — and bless this special time of year, where almost every game is good, and every streak can be broken. We're talkin' Tourney Time. Go 'hawks.* Go 'heels.** Go 'toppers***. Amen.

*For my honey.
**For my history.
***For the fun.
