Basketball tournament - 65 teams play "one loss and you are out" to determine the champ. How many games does it take? Answer - 64. Every team but one must lose once - that means 64 losses. (That'll wow them this weekend when the final big game is on - ask them how many games have been played so far in the tournament (63 - this is the 64th!))

Nice report Chico - thanks. To change the subject, I have been thinking - if I REALLY could start over, who would I be? Hmmmm ... probably NOT Jimmy Buffett.

If you follow RoadBunner (and Mario), you know she ran the LA Marathon this past Sunday - 26.2 miles. If you follow me, you know I am trying to build up some meagre mileage and speed - starting from a horrid 1/2 mile on Feb 1. The watch in the photo below is my time today for 4 miles - a bit of which I had to walk. It averages out to 11 minutes 20 seconds per mile! If you do the arithmetic, RB did the whole damn Marathon with an average of 11 minutes per mile - and walked a bit and took pictures too. I'm depressed....
