    I have created an account for the forthcoming Mens Basketball Tournament. Private group name is Skyboxers, password is DB1958. One entry per person. All of you who participated previously, will receive an email with the link from ESPN.

    I just checked our Skyboxers group and it appears there are only three of us enrolled, Cindy, Sid and myself. (Must have been an older group) Therefore, I guess you will not be notified by ESPN. Simply go to ESPN Men's Tournament Challenge and join private group Skyboxers and enter password DB1958.

    According to a feature on ESPN, that claims to successfully predict the 8 teams that have a chance to win the National Championship. These are the 8 for this year.

    Assuming our math is correct, we're down to a mere eight teams that have not been mentioned. If you're a fan of Arizona, UConn, Creighton, Duke, Houston, Kentucky, Purdue or Tennessee, congratulations! Your team made the grade.

    We know from past tournament results that anything's possible. Hope abounds for every team that remains.

    Cindy has advised me that she and Tom will not participate in the contest this year, due to caring for Tom's mother, who now resides with them. They will be missed, but family always comes first.:)
