The best month-long tournament ever invented by man, woman or child tipped off yesterday with Selection Sunday. What other time of year combines St. Patrick’s Day, the Madness that is March basketball, warmer spingtime temps, females finally shedding their burka-like winter garb, the sounds of robins in the yard and Jim Nantz reminding us every commercial break that The Masters is mere weeks away? If you have been pondering the meaning of life — this month is as good a reason as any to breathe and pay the cable bill.

I know we have some high-rollers who regularly read my Off The Couch blog and I am once again attempting to coerce both those individuals into providing me with something of extreme value (or at least equal worth as to what I charge for viewing this website). Email me at if you can help with prizes for the top three finishers.
