Join us Monday at 12:30 p.m. for a fiasco of a live video chat

The chat will be conducted with me hovering above the city. OK, I'm lying.

Monday's live video chat will be conducted with me hovering above the city. OK, I'm lying.

Fair warning. There’s a real fiasco apt to be committed in this space Monday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. This not-exactly-telegenic correspondent will conduct, with the aid of esteemed colleague Michael Carvell, a live video chat. Topics are sure to include:

1. Bradley’s Bracket Fiasco, about to enter its 25th year;

2. Bradley’s picks, which will be offered in this space after the NCAA tournament grid is released Sunday night;

3. Bradley’s hair, which is a different style and color than when the Fiasco began in 1988.

Part of me sincerely hopes you’ll watch and partake. Another part of me — the realistic part — would advise you to steer clear of anything having to do with me and live (or even taped) video. But for those brave enough to monitor the doings, you’ll be able to submit questions that morning in the comments section on this dumb little blog and during the chat itself via Facebook. (You’ll have to log in using your Facebook user name and password to participate once we go live.)

About the Fiasco: A bit of history and details of this year’s fabulous prizes can be found here.

About Facebook: If you’d like to become my friend — and I need all of those I can get — you can send me a request here.

About the chat: You can bookmark this link to return, if you dare, for Monday’s festivities. And this much I can say: I’m not much of a TV personality, but Mr. Carvell has great entertainment value. So please join us, even if you have to keep one eye shut.

Kudos, Big Crimson 75. And for being first, you won’t be required to watch Monday.

Now if we could get a view of Sonny Clusters live, that would be TV worth watching.

Bradley — you picked a good year to start the fiasco. 1988 was one of the better Tourney’s ever. Danny & the Miracles if memory serves!!

If we could have a Clusters video chat, I’d buy him a Final Four sweatshirt.

That was indeed the KU run, BC 75. It was also the year I wrote a little something that caused Oklahoma’s Billy Tubbs to refer to me as “some jerk in Atlanta.”

Tubbs not like you? To quote Jerry’s mom on Seinfeld, “How could anyone not like him?”

We might do some audio and we’d jump at a chance to write something for you but we are reluctant to do video because of all the girls that would be calling us. Our girlfriend would not put up with that.

Good to see Chipper back in the lineup with rejuvenated thighs. Celine Dion loses the bet on who could come back first.

We will be partaking via Facebook and we plan to have some questions ready for you. Although we are not very old we have enjoyed having some talks with Furman Bisher and Dave Kindred and some other luminaries from these pages. We knew Lewis Grizzard when he was writing sports. Of course, we was just a baby but we could read early and was able to conjugate before our time. This time with Mark will be special and we are looking forward to it.

Sounds like a great time….think I’ll put a pig in the ground and some beer on ice and watch the madness unfold.

Wait a second, is this going to be fed live to Cleveland? I’ll watch it for that.

How about you do it from the site of the Final Four? I’m sure the Saints would roll out the red carpet for you considering all the nice things you had to say about them earlier in the week.

Clusters if you don’t have #10 jersey on and a “dilly bar” in one hand and a “little flag” in the other hand I won’t believe it is you on Monday !!
