Georgetown!!
Oh yeah, and not that I really even care about NCAA Basketball, but at work I joined up in the pool this year. I had a really good showing in the first round, too, ended up being tied for third (well, with about five other people - but this was a huuuuge pool).

In the second round I missed a few more, but the third round caught me back up. I was looking good. Plus, because of my high standings in the first round, I was looking really good.

I started to think that there was a pretty good chance I was going to take it. All of a sudden I was attached to the outcome of winning. I mean, I only put in five bucks, but still, there was a good chance I could win ...

And then Georgetown had to go and blow my Final Four pick of North Carolina.

You know what? I'm sick of the Carolinas. That's the last straw. I say with all of this Democratic house-cleaning that's going on with the Bush administration's firing of eight US Attorneys last year, let's also thrown in a plan to sell both of the Carolinas to someone. Mexico. Denmark. Heck, even Canada.

Whoever can raise the cash first, so be it.

Here are a few points I'd like to send to my congresspeople for review:

    Let's not forget that they took our hockey team.

    I never got why Hornets basketball team leaves, and then two minutes later the Bobcats show up. Seems like shady dealings.

    And I still blame Wilmington for Dawson's Creek.

    More than 80% of NASCAR racing teams are located in the Piedmont region.

    And what was up with that whole Roanoke Colony back in Colonial times? I mean seriously.

Yep, it's time for the cackalackies to go. Who's with me?!
