Obama’s Barackets Walloping the Rest After Day 1

It’s only Day 1, but the President’s Barackets is ahead of 98.2% of entries in ESPN’s March Madness Tournament Challenge! President Obama only got two games wrong, though one was Ohio State that he also picked to on to the Sweet 16 so he won’t be getting that game right. He picked some sweet upsets, though, like North Dakota State over Oklahoma that was the first true upset of this tournament given the other “upsets” were teams known to have fairly competitive squads. Someone said North Dakota State was the “best team nobody knows about”, and they at least proved that in one game. We’ll see how well they do the rest of the way.

The POTUS is beating me for now, but for now is the key part of that phrase. I am a mere one game behind, but still ahead of 90.4% of the entries. I also have one team picked to go to the Sweet 16 that’s not going, Oklahoma. Obama has been analyzed to pick well in the first round, especially for upsets, but a little more suspect in the latter rounds, though not that suspect given he usually does pretty well to still beat the majority of entries.

Bring on Day 2!

All I Want for the 2018 Olympics is For It to Be Held in One Unified Korea

Wouldn’t that be the ultimate Olympics story? If somehow between now and then, North and South Korea could get their act together, likely with help with other nations, to be unified. That way, there wouldn’t be a spectre of a North Korea over the Olympics all the time.

Of course, lots of people would say that’s a ridiculous dream, but how many Olympic dreams are ridiculous when they begin? If there’s one the thing Olympics should do, it should encourage you to dream bigger. If you can’t imagine something happening, then get a bigger imagination.

There’ll also be those who say Korean unification isn’t an Olympic dream, but dreams to me, are dreams. We’ve seen more remarkable change in our life time with the reunification of Germany, disbanding of others for independence where there should be with people of their own identities.

So why not a Winter Olympics in 2018 in one unified Korea?

In Pyeongchang, Korea.

NHL, AHL, WHL, OHL, QMJHL, NWHL Hockey Fans Facebook Friends Tagging Challenge

I created these tagging challenges for fans of North American hockey, or people who know lots of those fans. The tagging challenges can be done on Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal or other platforms where you can tag people on pictures.

The idea is to see how diverse is the group of hockey fans you know, and how does that compare to your fellow hockey loving friends. It’s no fun if everybody supported the team you supported, you know!

Pick a Facebook tagging meme of your choice based on the leagues below:

Tag one person you know whose favourite team is represented by the team logo. It has to be that person’s favourite team as you can’t tag a person twice on the same photo.

How many teams can you tag? And how does this compare to your friends who might have done this same challenge?

Here’s how to get these graphics for your tagging fun:

  • Click on a picture below to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag your friends!

Fancy yourself quite the social sports fan, or this isn’t your sport? Try the same Facebook tagging challenges for:
