School Sports Data - Brackets and all

School sports are fun - but they're also serious business for people who track results and keep stats. Using spreadsheets and publishing as part of the official web site is what the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association has been doing. The sample below is a direct link to one sheet (one weight class) within one sport (wrestling) in one class (AA). The way they represented each weight class in a bracket style is worth a look... and, by the way, Congrats to Luke Frey - the Champion of the 103 lb. weight class ;)

Site:Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Assoc.
Page/Post:District IV data
Spreadsheet:2008 Class AA Individual Wrestling Tournament
...make sure you click on a few sheets in there to get the full view of how they use this...

Okay I know you are not my personal google doc expert...but you are the only one I know...and then only from a post on one of my blogs. I am having trouble posting goggle docs to my blog...Month by Month...it keeps putting them on another blog I have instead. I tried using the settings and checked out google help (read everything I could find but it all says the same thing and for some reason I can't get my settings reset correctly) I still can not get it to publish to the right blog...ummm I have several! Honestly it asked for BlogID and Title and I have no idea where to find that info (the id) and I have tried several variations and settings and it still only publishes to Ginger's Journey. If you could give me any help I would be grateful!!!!
