I had a great time hosting a party at my home for the winners of last year's Frito-Lay "Pick Them and Win, Baby!" contest.  The winners were selected from the Frito-Lay promotion for having the best tournament picks from last year's draw.  All the contest winners came to my house today to watch the Elite 8 action of Michigan State vs Tennessee and Duke vs Baylor.  A key person in organizing the event and promotion was John Tatum with Genesco Sports.  It was great fun and everyone enjoyed watching the exciting college hoops action!

It is always a busy and exciting time when the NCAA tournament gets underway. I was in Bristol, CT at the ESPN Studios for the first two days of the tournament.  I have a blast watching all the games in the WAR ROOM with Digger Phelps, Howie Schwab, Jason Williams, Andy Katz, Rece Davis, Steve Lavin and all the ESPN basketball folks.  The war room has over a dozen tv's with all the various games being shown.  We sit and break down all the action and just have a great time talking hoops!  Saturday and Sunday I will analyze the action from my house in Sarasota via satellite.  A bunch of HUGE upsets in the first two rounds of the tourney - that is what makes the NCAA tourney so exciting to watch.  You never know what will happen in a one game match-up.

The ACC Tournament was fantastic, baby!  Duke wins the championship over Georgia Tech in the last 30 seconds.  Duke played outstanding defense all tournament to survive Virginia, Miami and Georgia Tech to win their 9th ACC in the last twelve years. Quite a record for Coach K and the Dukies!

I had a great time speaking for LKQ Corporation in Orlando this morning. LKQ is the largest nationwide provider of aftermarket collision replacement products.  There were over 400 people in attendance, including plant managers, executive leaders and sales leaders.  The event was held at the beautiful Disney Beach Club Resort.  My wife and I had a wonderful time meeting all the great people with LKQ - it was a first-class event and I was glad to be a part of it!

It was Senior Night at Cameron Indoor Stadium as Duke played host to North Carolina. Jon Scheyer along with several other seniors, were honored before the game. Scheyer has had an absolutely brilliant career at Duke. The Dukies were absolutely dominating as they blew away Carolina. Duke outplayed the Tarheels from tipoff to the end of the game.
