An open letter to Stacey Dales-Schuman

Dear Stacey,

I just wanted to write and thank you for your work as part of ESPN's studio team for the NCAA Women's Tournament. I haven't followed the women's game very closely since I left ODU, and so on the couple of occasions that you and Lisa Leslie provided analysis, I was listening.

And so when you told me that you really liked Baylor as a dark horse for the Final Four, I went ahead and penciled them in all the way to the Championship, and as a result, I absolutely crushed the other competitors in our office pool. In fact, it would have really helped me out if you could have sprinkled in some advice on the men's side, where I spent most of the tournament in last place. But hey, one for two isn't bad at all.

I know you're busy and all, but if you're ever in the area, I think I owe you a cup of coffee or a little Dinosaur BBQ. Seriously. Just let me know.

Thanks again,


go ahead, yeah, sure, revel in your triumph. we'll getcha next year.
