This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring training is going strong, with the promise of Opening Day just around the corner. After a winter like the one we've endured here in the Midwest, March is the transition month where good things lie ahead.
- There's always the gang at KSHE who puts everything into "March Bandness" - one of the better inside and outside versions of this stunt. Every employee at KSHE is playing along with the audience, trying to make the best possible picks. They have "retired" Sammy Hagar and Rush this year, claiming "tour exhaustion." Rick Balis and the staff always do a great job here.
- Of course, 97Rock and John Hager in Buffalo always run a class tournament. This year, Led Zeppelin has been elevated to naming rights on the championship trophy. (Wonder what Lord Stanley would think?)
- But the bracket that got my attention this year comes out of Seattle. KISW's afternoon show, "The Men's Room," has their "Alco-Hall of Fame." It's warped, it's demented, and it's that show's lifestyle. Miles & Thrill have created a bracket that is....well, unique. Dave Richards enables this juvenile behavior. If you participate, bring a designated driver.
