Least Obeyed Law in WA...Evah

NCAA's bracket pools are bad. [howls of laughter from reading audience]

You can gamble your life away at a tribal casino but the most widely practiced way of killing office productivity every March and a two-bit hand of online poker are illegal. I guess at least the females among us - or the really adventurous, I suppose - can still get a bikini wax, unlike New Jersey.

This is not unlike our legal regimen that says hard liquor is really, really, really bad...unless the state sells it to you.

Now, do I go with Louisville or UNC as my ultimate bracket champ?

1. Bad/illegal = state doesn't get revenue from it

BTW, I'm going with neither. Pitt or Memphis is my pick. Haven't decided which yet.

2. If you want to see how ugly things can get in this state with regard to gambling, dig into what happened to Nick Jenkins with his website,

I'm going with Louisville.

4. If you check Ragnar's public blog link re freedom among the 50 states, We are ranked 44 in freedom, and NJ is 49.

Shouldn't one of their 'truth in advertising' laws kick in at some point when they try to call themselves 'liberal?'

5. Wonder who Rick Neuheisel is going with in this years tourney?
As for me, I've got Missouri (who knock out UConn)and Oklahoma locking it up in the motor city...and Texas makes it further than Pitt.

7. Can't fill that budget gap but boy-howdy-Autocat, that NCAA tourney is ripe for new laws.
Do the Indian casinos have boards??

8. Check out the front page of ... if you can stand it.

Economy in the tank? Jobs being lost? Bailouts continuing unabated? Nevermind. Let's trumpet Obama's bracket sheet.
