This season's gone so wrong it's somehow retroactively gone
back and ruined the first couple rounds of NCAA basketball when I
was doing pretty well. Also one of the book shelves is falling apart,
although that's going to not be my concern much longer.

I've got my national champion still in. And that's it. I lost
half my Final Four by the Sweet 16.

I know, thanks to MSU, even my huge head start on points didn't save me
from losing the lead in our tourney this weekend. This is what I get
for being true to my school!

Don't worry, Heather. I'm true to my school, too.

Only my school is Kentucky, so this year it works out. We won't talk
about last year.

I actually picked two Final Four teams correctly this year. I think
that's a record for me.

Anywho, it's up and down and I certainly hope you return to the group
next year!

Here's where I have the advantage. Since I went to schools that
have no self-esteem, there's no need to stay loyal to them in picking
sports championships. As they say, nobody ever died for dear old Rutgers,
and nobody expects Rutgers alumni to follow the Scarlet Knights into a
deep and astounding mediocrity.

Buy a tube of "LIQUID NAILS" (with a screw-on top).
Unscrew your screws, dip screw ends in Liquid Nails, screw back
together.
Tidy up with nasal tissue or a bit of toilet paper.

When dry, reload shelves.
It is the easiest way to turn pressed fiberboard into tolerable solidity
on a budget.
Normal pressed fiberboard, with a bit of jostling after assembly, will
loosen up the screw holes and begin to fall apart. Ideally you will want to
soak the cheap pressed fiberboard bookshelves with polyurethane sealant or
polyurethane varnish (this will cause the cheap printed laminate to peel
off, but you should chemically improve any cheap pressed fiberboard
furniture and let air dry as the cost is and extra $10, but the payoff is
long-term durability versus the costs of higher quality hardwood furnature.

Woot! Break out the champagne!

After finishing at the bottom so many years, it's nice to finally be
at the top.

Thanks to everyone who participated - next year in Atlanta!

Ah, my reign as marginally not incompetent was fun while it
lasted. (This is also something I say at work often.) Thanks for
running the game.
