thank you all for that outpouring of march madness advice and counsel. those zero comments responding to my plea for bracket help were incredibly useful as i sat in my cubicle this morning, frantically clicking back and forth between different espn.com screens and scribbling nonsense on my Fox Sports print out. i cursed you all and your lack of ncaa engagement as i fretted away my morning on seedings and dark horses and top-heavy final fours.
i was actually thinking about my brackets last night as i was falling asleep. i am a sick person.
anyway, despite my readership's distinct lack of ncaa enthusiasm, i did manage to actually make some decisions. i am in two pools, and i have UCLA winning it all in both of them. in one i have them beating Georgetown in the final, and in the other they best Ohio State for the title. i have BC going to the Elite Eight in toast's pool - even i, alumni superfan, could not bring myself to burn $10 by predicting the Eagles to win it all.
i have #12 Old Dominion over #5 Butler as my upset. this is apparently a fashionable upset pick, but so be it. i also have #11 Winthrop over #6 Notre Dame because hey, fuck Notre Dame, and #11 VCU over #6 Duke because you know, fuck Duke.
now, i will sit back and hope against hope that i'll make some of my money back....
