Stock Disconnect, Word Jumble, $200K Ride: Talking Squawk
Got a spare $200k lying around? We went to the New York Auto Show for a sneak peek at the new Bentley Flying Spur. And if luxury is your thing, the photos are definitely worth a second look. Andrew and "Jeeves" may schedule a test drive this weekend. Check out our great slideshow on our "Squawk" Facebook page, courtesy of our photographer Jonathan K. Li.

TV Production 101
Euro Zone Crisis Animation (cue the tape)! Any good TV producer knows when to "up the ante" and build a little extra excitement and drama when the opportunity presents itself. And sure enough, opportunity knocked. It can't get much more exciting in business news than when you can have a "Cypriot" banking crisis!
Bracket Busters! Our "Squawk Box Money Madness" got off to a flying start this week with an OLD TECH vs. NEW TECH showdown with IBM beating Amazon. Three No. 1 seeds fell in the "Squawk 16" opening round (our stock tournament consists of 16 of the most clicked stocks on CNBC.com, not 64 – who's got the time?). And yes Joe, you're correct. It's not scientific. It's for fun! The opening round of eight match-ups is complete. Now we're in the "Emerging 8" (our version of the "Elite 8"). Grab our bracket!
Monday: Monthly Auto Sales
Tuesday: Factory Orders (10 a.m. ET)
Wednesday: ADP Employment Report (8:15 a.m. ET)
Thursday: Jobless Claims (8:30 a.m. ET)
Friday: U.S. Unemployment Report (March) (8:30 a.m. ET)
'Squawk Face-Time' (Hair Nation)
In the Control Room we love matching Squawk guests with Joe, Andrew or Becky's hair and vice versa: This week, (hint!) Joe also wished he had sold out to Yahoo for $30 million.
Spending way too much time last weekend reading/worrying about Cyprus. I'm not going to make the same mistake with Slovenia. The New York-area weather forecast is too nice. I don't care if Slovenia can take down the entire euro zone, I'll be outside if anyone is looking for me.
Believing in teams like, Gonzaga and Georgetown (Florida Gulf Coast U, really?). Joe is hanging in there in the TV-Newser March Madness Bracket At least I am still ahead of my wife (for now)!
"Squawk on the Street" begins right now (following "Squawk Box" Monday-Friday 6 a.m.-9 a.m. ET).
Looking forward to the three-day weekend! On top of that great looking weather forecast, there's HUGE great drama on TV. The NCAA gets us into the "Sweet 16" and "Elite 8" games. And BTW, who OKed this scheduling conflict!? "Game of Thrones" Season 3 Premiere Sunday at 9 p.m. ET! "Walking Dead" Season 3 Finale Sunday at 9 p.m. ET! Hello. Don't these people talk?! Fire up the DVR.
Happy Easter, everyone!
