Bloggernacle Bracket Reminder and the Best Commercial Ever

First, many have signed up for the Bloggernacle Bracket contest. Many others have not. Please follow this link
to see my directions on how to sign up. ESPN registration is required, but that's about a two minute process and shouldn't be a big deal. It'll be fun! I'll post updates on the winners (and worst losers) here on the page. If everyone that isn't using their real name/Bloggernacle handle in their bracket name could post their 'Nacle name on the ESPN group bulletin board (at our bracket group homepage), that would be great. Also, if you're a fan of easy wins, only two brave Bloggernaclers have dared to pick a women's bracket. Directions for that are in the above link as well.
Second, ESPN's women's basketball tournament commercial is great. It's a pretty standard montage of highlights and coaches done in a pretty snazzy way. However, the last clip is absolutely amazing.
OU coach Sherri Coale is up at a dry erase board pointing at some Xs and Os. Then she just looks at her team and says:
"Or we could just kick the door down."
If you haven't tried women's hoops, this tournament is a great place to start. Tune in for the Sweet Sixteen and watch teams like LSU, Oklahoma, Maryland, Duke, and North Carolina for a best exposure to the women's game.
Basketball rant over.
