This year, members of HC Media tried to predict a perfect bracket for the 2013 NCAA March Madness. However, like everybody else in the country, no one could call every matchup perfectly. Twenty-seven people involved with HC Media competed against each other and put their college basketball knowledge to the test.

When I first found out that the pope resigned, I didn’t believe it. I have only known the pope – as has everyone for the past 600 years – to serve until he passes away; so hearing this news was a shock to me. Many people asked me what happened or what I thought.
