I had a great time on Tuesday in Houston, the city that will host the Final Four in a few weeks.

I went up against an American legend, Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, in the Allstate March Mayhem Challenge. In past years, they put me up against dolphins, a longhorn and even a groundhog.

My friends, this year's competition will be tough. Buzz Aldrin is a smart man, and he made some great picks. Everybody loves the brackets, baby! You can follow and see who wins by following #MarchMayhem on twitter.com

Peyton Manning went out as a winner on Monday, announcing his retirement.

Next stop for him is Canton, baby!

I love this time of year. March Madness is under way. So is Spring Training.

I am lucky to live in Florida. The Orioles are down the road, as are the Pirates. The Rays are in Port Charlotte. It is great to see young players battling for playing time, future stars getting their first taste of the majors.

I am a huge baseball fan. I have season tickets to the Rays. Soon they will be saying Play Ball for real, baby!

We are only a few weeks away from Selection Sunday. It has been a wild college hoop season, and there are plenty of bubble teams and others battling for seeding in Championship Week.

The ACC and SEC are two conferences still very much up for grabs. Kentucky has not even locked up the double-bye in the SEC tournament.

This week we will see a number of teams secure bids into the big dance. You will see lots of celebration for the little guys. Enjoy it!
