I broke my leg on Mar 7, 1996. I spent 4 days in the hospital. I remember watching some of the NCAA tournament in the hospital - it was the first time I'd watched television in quite some time.
I mention this to point out that at one point in time, March Madness occurred entirely in March.
This year, I've filled out my bracket. I have done well for me - 21 of the 28 games so far. If things hold as they are now, I'll end up with 23. That's no tbad for me. I'm usually lucky to be at 20.
