3/19/08 – Insomnia, Bear Stearns, and March Madness Brackets!

It’s 3:45am, and I can’t sleep. I’m suffering through nerves and insomnia, and I’m not even the one going through a surgical procedure tomorrow. Again, though I’m optimistic, good thoughts and prayers have never been known to do damage to a situation (despite what some may insist).

For those who may have heard something on the radio or seen a glimpse of something on television…I won’t go into the specifics of what happened on Monday that sent everyone into a tizzy. I trust in you all to seek out enough information about the collapse of Bear Stearns and what it means to the average American and our economy. I may end up writing about it a bit more later in the week…but for now, I’ll provide you all with a short list to get you started.

Bear Stearns is NOT:
1. An NCAA coach who had a dizzy spell during practice for a Big Ten Tournament Game.
2. Bill Brasky’s third cousin.
3. One of those sexual fetishes you only read about on the internet.
4. A circus animal that fell off its unicycle.
5. A Hollywood adaptation of a Dr. Seuss classic that some say bastardized the source material.

Now get to readin’ the newspaper.

With that out of the way, let’s address the excitement in the air in offices and bars at happy hour populated by overweight and lonely 36-year-old men. That’s right, kids, it’s March Madness and that means it’s time for your favorite internet writer of nonsense and podcaster to give his official bracket!

Whoops, wrong bracket. The real one’s HERE (link opens in a new window).

More later…
