NCAA wrap up and spinning basketballs

Agent Nathan Bransford held the 1st Annual Blog Tournament Challenge (NCAA basketball - March Madness). I tied for 5th place! That might not seem like a big deal, but there were 140 people that entered. Plus I never place that high up. My husband and I also had a challenge going, like we do every year. I beat him and earned bragging rights until next March. Some years he wins, some years I do, but this is the first year that we both only had 1 team going into the final four. I think a lot of people had that experience this year, or there's no way I would have gotten to 5th place in Nathan's challenge.

Did any of you participate in a challenge or fill out a bracket this year? How did you do?

This is me, spinning a basketball, which I used to be able to do, for a couple of seconds. If I had practiced, I probably could have been a good basketball spinner, even if I wasn't that great of a basketball player.

Oh, and I also have a shiny new avatar :)


  1. Congrats on placing in the contest, that is quite awesome!
    I love that basketball pic. I played basketball in high school and wore my hair just like that! (though I couldn't spin the ball like that ;)

  2. Thanks Kelly. I didn't play basketball in HS (not good enough), but I could spin the ball (for a few seconds before it dropped).

  3. I nominated you for an award -- :)

  4. Congratulations!!!
