This March Madness Bracket Will Not Win
70 million people are filling out brackets thinking they're going to win. Not me! I'm pretty sure this is a terrible bracket to copy.
I think I watched two or three college basketball games this season, and that was only because I needed something athletic and active to keep me going on the treadmill and football season was over. But I'm a huge college basketball fan now that the tournament is here!
It's a great time to be a fair-weather fan.
I know very little about who is supposed to win. I do know that blue teams usually do (Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina....if only Boise State were an option!) So I applied the philosophy, "When in doubt, pick a blue team." Another strategy is picking underdogs, or picking schools where you know someone. Sometimes it's fun just to pick based on cool names, like Iona or Gonzaga. So I did that.
I have these teams in the Final Four:
And I picked Michigan State to win the whole thing, even though I hope Baylor does because I saw my friend Sarah with a Baylor Bears t-shirt on the other day, and she has six kids including two sets of twins and I want her to have a really fun tournament so she forgets about how tired she is and how much diapers cost. She needs joys. Go Bears! I picked a lot of Texas teams because I have ties there. And Texas teams usually lose in basketball, which doesn't bode well for my bracket. I picked some good vacation spots too, like Hawaii and... Well, Hawaii.
Who are you picking? May you have full bracket confidence! I sure don't, but I'm in the office pool and that's the perfect excuse to goof off at work on Thursday and Friday. Who needs confidence. Good luck!
