FINAL FOUR, 8 GAME PRO SETS AND NASCAR

Standard

Although none of these things really sound that fun to me, they bring lots and lots of excitement for many, in fact millions!  Even though I may not be as elated, I do feel the charge of energy from sports.  Because of that, I bring you my predictions!  

FIRST:
For the first time ever in my life, I am going to pick my prediction for the Final Four.   This is a result of too many hours on the gym treadmill watching ESPN with no sound.  Please forgive my lack of lingo knowledge.  Here it goes:
Midwest: Michigan State
West: Missouri
East: Duke
South: North Carolina (this being my long shot)
To win it all:    . . . . . .  . DUKE!
SECOND:
8 Game Pro Set describes the tennis matches I will be playing on Saturday (not exciting to millions).  I have no prediction whatsoever since this is the first time my teammates and I will play a tournament.  It is a ladies only doubles match up between three teams.  Unfortunately, we do not have matching outfits, but I think we will do well.  Our team name is “The Gall,” coming from our coach, so we don’t have a clue what it means.  We also are not familiar with a 7 point Coman tiebreak that we apparently have to play.  Weeeeee.  I predict we are scruffy enough to come out on top, or at least in the middle!
THIRD:
NASCAR!  As I have written in the past, this is the number 1 spectator sport in America. Although NASCAR officials are whining about cash flow, they are still filling up the stands.  I doubt that April 5th at the Texas Motor Speedway will be any different.  I know my brothers will be contributing to the economic success of NASCAR.  The one and only time I attended this race with my family, it poured like cats and dogs.  The only car I saw on the track was a pace car going 20 mph to confirm it was raining.  So, not having a lot of knowledge about NASCAR, here is my prediction:
CARL EDWARDS will win it all.
