What are you supposed to do in a situation like this. Do you pick the boot up? If you do, where do you take it? It's not like there is a central lost and found for stuff you find in the street.
I tend to think it is best to leave stuff like this alone. When I loose something I always back track along the route I took that day looking for the lost item. I am sure there is a mom that will be happy to see the boot is right where she parked earlier in the day and was trying to stuff the kid in the car, while talking on her cell phone and drinking her chai latte.

So back to the NCAA Tournament. Louisville, North Carolina, Pitt and UConn are the top seeds. The only controversy I see here is Memphis who could have been in that group; they are a very good team and I think we'll see them in the final four. If Lawson is healthy, I am thinking UNC wins it all, but I am not 100% on that yet. A few early upsets I am feeling:
Arizona (12) over Utah (5) - solid, pick it
USC (10) over BC (7) - solid, pick it
W. Kentucky (12) over Illinois (5) - possible
Va Comm (11) over UCLA (6) - possible
Michigan (10) over Clemson (7) - possible
Marquette (6) lost their best player, I am leaning towards Utah St. (11)
I think Kansas (3) will struggle with North Dakota State (14), but I am not ready to call this an upset yet.
Texas has a tough opening game against Minnesota, if they get past that game they could face Duke. Duke has struggled in the last couple of years in the tourney, but I think I have to go with my head not my heart and pick Duke. I will post my bracket on Wednesday, so you can see all my picks.

I don't know if this picture does this person justice, but she is huge. When she got on the bus they had to lower the wheelchair ramp and she barely fit through the door. Not only is she taking up a full two seats from side to side, but they had to flip the chair up in front of her so she could sit down. When she walked down the aisle to get off the bus, you could feel the bus moving. I wonder if they change large people for two tickets on the bus, like the airlines do?

So, back to Wayne. Obviously he is a big star and Nike loves their athletes, so it is quite surprising that his name is spelt wrong. Since they are stamped in steel, you'd think they'd triple check before they make them. This misspelling amazes everyone who knows anything about Nike, these guys are really on top of things and they usually don't make mistakes. That is why W+K 12 made a little pin (pictured) to help right this wrong. They call themselves, The Concerned Committee For The Correct Spelling Of Wayne Gretzky’s Name On His Parking Space At Nike World Headquarters. The committee just got a very powerful new member today. I gave Phil Knight a pin and told him the story. He thought it was hilarious. I hope we didn't get anyone in trouble.
