Tomorrow begins march madness, one of my favorite fun times of the year! Read past stuff here…and if you’re interested in joining (before 8 am PDT Thursday morning) here’s the scoop:
STEP 1: Click this link to go directly to my group.
You can enter your member name and password if you already have a free account at ESPN, or create an account (if you create a new one, uncheck all the boxes so you don’t get a bunch of e-mail).
After you’ve logged in or created an entry, you enter the password for the group, which is “twelve” (without the quotes). Then you’re in!
STEP 2: Pick who you think will win all the games. After you pick your teams, you don’t have to do anything else; just enjoy the games for 3 weeks! To pick your teams or follow the progress throughout the tournament, use the following link:

Group: Gregg’s Group XII
For inspiration and laudation, I hereby post the March Madness Hall of Fame:
Imagine…join this year, and your name could end up in the hall of fame!
|Year:||Pool Name:||Hall of Famer:||NCAA Champion:||Honorable Mention:|
|2007||Gregg’s Group XI||Don Staples||Florida|
|2006||Gregg’s Group X||Doug Woodward||Florida|
|2005||Gregg’s Group 9||Nancy Woodward||North Carolina|
|2004||Gregg’s Group 8||Ron Woodward||Connecticut|
|2003||Gregg’s Group 7||Diane Fawver||Syracuse|
|2002||Boise Bowl 6||Lonny Bumgardner||Maryland|
|2001||Boise Bowl 5||Gregg Koskela||Duke|
|2000||Boise Bowl 4||Jim Steele||Michigan State|
|1999||Koskela’s Madness 3||Gregg Koskela||Connecticut|
|1998||Koskela’s Madness 2||Jim Steele||Kentucky||Diane Fawver|
|1997||Koskela’s Madness 1||Tim Hyatt||Arizona||Doug Koskela|
(The honorable mention goes way back before ESPN hosted this thing. I had another scoring method that gave you bonus points for picking upsets, and Doug and Diane won under that scoring method.)
So, I let you dream of the day when your name might be etched into this hall of fame.
