On a tangentially related note, you can sign up for the Commonwealth Foundation’s bracket challenge here.  Four Pennsylvania schools are in the “dance” – Pitt, Villanova, Temple, and Robert Morris.  As for my alma mater, they showed a great deal of heart this year, showing up for every game.

There is no cost involved, so none of the proceeds will go to pad the Gaming Control Board’s expense account, or allow Gov. Rendell to claim he has reduced property taxes or college tuition.
