To sum up the bracket nightmare that was today, Gonzaga got destroyed by 10th seed Nevada; one of my Final Four pics, Maryland, got shown up by Syracuse; Stanford fell to Alabama; and my annual pick to take the entire tournament, North Carolina, was defeated by Texas. Today will certainly be remembered, into the near future, at least, as "Black Saturday."

To avoid ending on a sour note, though, Katie and I put the madness behind us tonight by taking advantage of our new Netflix membership and watching How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days and Bruce Almighty. The first I had seen already, the second I hadn't – neither disappointed. I may need to update my movie queue, though, because Katie was the last one to edit it, and I would prefer not to have only chick-flicks arriving in the mail for the next month.

Anyone who hasn't signed up to at least give Netflix a try definitely should. It's great to have that "opening up a surprise birthday present" feeling several times weekly. Oh, and anyone who happened to pick Nevada to go deep in the tourney, I salute you!
