Things could not be much more quiet in the land of the 49ers and the labor squabbles in the NFL are not ending anytime soon. Fortunately for some of us we've got the joy of the NCAA tournament to keep us occupied. Given that, I figured I'd open up a Sunday thread while folks are enjoying some 2011 NCAA tournament basketball. The games aren't always pretty, but there's plenty of thrilling finishes. Just look at video of the Butler-Pittsburgh ending for one of the craziest finishes you may ever see.
Today's schedule features some interesting matchups. I don't expect a lot of upsets but if I had to pick some, I'd go with Marquette over Syracuse and Florida State over Notre Dame. Anything is possible in March, but I think we see mostly chalk today. Although I'm talking about college basketball here, consider this a completely open thread. We don't have those all that often so I figured it'd be something fun for a lazy Sunday. You can talk about basketball, whether or not you're eating a nice Sunday brunch, or if you're just sitting around staring at the wall.
