Final Four back in Atlanta in 2013

The NCAA announced the host cities for the men’s final four for 2012-2016.  It will mark the third time in eleven years the Georgia Dome will host the final four.  In 2002, Maryland defeated Indiana and in 2007 some team from Florida beat Ohio State.

The committee cited the Georgia Dome’s staff for how they handled the tornado during the SEC tornament in March as a factor in the selection.  The interesting thing about the selection in 2013 is that will the the 75th anniversary of the ‘final four’ being a part of the NCAA tournament.  It is interesting because Indianapolis, where the NCAA is headquartered, was selected for its seventh time as host for the premier event in men’s basketball during this round, to host in 2015.

New Orleans, Dallas and Houston were also selected to host during this selection period.

BBQ, Ball and Bets

There's nothing like a sunny fall afternoon, pork BBQ (with mustard sauce, of course!), a pregame tailgate, and...betting online. You heard me right. With a laptop and an internet connection you can check the odds of any game from the 50 yard line. Now that's convenience and will make your tailgate all the more interesting when some dude mentions just how much of a good bet a certain game is.
