As I write this, my wife is on the phone with her 85 year old mother. Trying to explain how to fill out the brackets. Donna's mother is a little hard of hearing.

Donna: No, mom. It's Gonzaga, not Gonzales. GONZAGA. I know, it's a strange name for a college. I don't know where it is, somewhere in Washington I think.

WASHINGTON. No, the state, not the District of Columbia...


No, no. They're in the Ivy League. They're not going to be in this tournament. Why'd I bring them up?

You asked me where Gonzaga is. I think it's in Washington. Yes, Washington is playing in the tournament. And they could end up playing Washington State if they both win in the first round.

I know, mom. It's VERY confusing.

March Madness!!! I completed my brackets last night. This Gonzales that's been in the news. . I have them knocking off Indiana in Sacramento in the first round. I can't keep 'em all straight. As I was bracketeering, I was watching, who was it? Viagra. They were trailing EMU, but pulled ahead and won so they're in. Or he's in. Or is he out? I'll have to check the latest news.

Donna's right. It's confusing.
