Since I was a little kid I have loved the March Madness tournament. My older brother and I always used to go against the odds and pick the biggest upsets. I’ve grown up, a little, since those days, but I still love the thrill and excitement of buzzer beaters, miracle underdogs, and the Final Four!
Needless to say I’m excited that March Madness takes off this weekend on Selection Sunday (March 16th). You can be sure I’ll have streaming bracket information and updates from the site which hosts the games, CBS Sportsline, on my My Yahoo! page.
I find that some of the best commentary on the selections and the ongoing drama comes from a Yahoo! Sports module. I get tips for my Fantasy game along with full team analysis all in one place. Can’t beat that!
Here’s my March Madness secret for you. If you’re looking for more of a witty and fast take on the “Ides of March,” try Fanhouse.. This feed will make you feel like you’re in that team huddle with 5 seconds to go on the clock.
Good luck with your picks!

That’s the kind of exchange you’re likely to find on one of my favorite feeds, Newsarama. It’s silly, and a little bit of a guilty pleasure, but that’s part of what being a geek is about!
And My Yahoo! is a great way to collect all of your Lord of the Rings-loving feeds in one place; build your very own Batcave, Deathstar, or Rivendell of nerdy knowledge.
When I want a mega-dose of guilty-goofiness, I’ll look at Boing Boing. It’s like a bag of tricks; you never what will be there, but it will almost always make you laugh or go “wow.”
Sometimes it seems like the Web was exclusively created for people to express their passion for science fiction – it’s certainly a great way to waste time online. There is no shortage of people fascinated with Star Trek, Tesla coils, Dungeons and Dragons; the new blog i09 collects the best of the best.
If you want a slightly saner take on geeky diversions, Lev Grossman’s Nerd World blog discusses the loves of the geek world with the calm of someone who isn’t quite so absorbed by it all. And sometimes, in this busy world, we need someone to help us cut through articles about Jar Jar Binks.

We’ve been making some changes here on the Blog, specifically to better organize old posts with the “Archives.” We have 77 posts since dating back to when we created the My Yahoo! Blog in April of 2007. We think the Blog features great tips for getting the most out of your page, and we want to make finding them as simple and easy as possible. That’s where you come in…
We need your ideas to help us make the “Archives” easier to search through so you can find posts from the past!
If you could be the designer for the My Yahoo! Blog, what would the “Archives” section look like? How would people find older posts? Should it be categorized by date or by the type of post (new modules, features, themes)? Post your ideas as comments to this blog post.
We recently added an expanding feature to the “Archives” section. When you click on a particular month, the posts from that month will drop down so you can navigate back instead of flipping through multiple pages. But we want to make it even better, show us what you’ve got!
