The NCCA Men’s Basketball Finals: North Carolina vs Gonzaga

University of North Carolina -1.5 over Gonzaga University

I am truly looking forward to NCAA Finals tomorrow night. The NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament is one my favorite events in all of sports. I always find this event extremely interesting because of the high level of the competition in the tourney and all the interesting subplots that develop as tournament narrows to just two teams.

This year my Final Four were comprised of Kansas, Duke, UCLA  and Gonzaga. I picked UCLA to make it to the Finals and face Gonzaga. Well, as we now know only the Bulldogs of Gonzaga made it to the Final Four. However, am I still feeling pretty good about my selections because I picked Gonzaga to win the whole thing this year and they stand poised to do just that. Overall, my bracket is in pretty good shape.  I have picked 41 out of 62 games correctly so far.

I recognize that fellow #1 seed UNC will pose a great challenge to Gonzaga. Clearly the oddsmakers think that as well, with Vegas installing the Tar Heels as a 1.5 point favorite. I really like Gonzaga ‘s chance in this game. I think Gonzaga is on of the few teams in the tourney that has the size, speed and overall balance to beat the perennial powerhouse Tar Heels.

 

 

 

 

Just how practical is it to use BitCoin?

I read a very interesting article on the Forbes website (link below) this morning about a guy who lived on Bitcoin for year and half while traveling around the world. I have followed Bitcoin for several years and I’m bullish on it in the long run. Bitcoin is not ready to replace conventional currencies quite yet, but this article demonstrates what great strides the cyber currency has made in recent years.
