My March Madness

Somehow I’ve already managed to win this year’s Bloggers’ Mad Dance pool. Of the eleven participants in the pool, not a single one of us has a remaining Final Four team winning another game. Given that I watched maybe ten minutes of college basketball all season before the tournament, which I watched religiously, that’s either a sign of incredibly good guessing or of a crazy tournament, maybe a little of both. I actually managed to have six of the elite eight before things came crashing back to earth for my bracket and pretty much everyone else’s. I have two final four teams (Florida and UCLA), but I’m not picking either team to go any further. Now, like Michael, I can freely cheer for George Mason to win the whole thing.

    I normally watch basketball religiously, and I’m dead last in my pool and my brackets are long blown to bits. It’s really annoying, but yeah — now I can freely cheer for Mason!

    I have UCLA making it to the final, but even if they do, I can’t win my pool. So, instead, I’m pulling for an all-SEC final. Watching Florida play this week, I don’t really understand how my UT Volunteers were able to beat them twice during the regular season.

    I’ve been out of town, so no chance to comment: Florida seemed to turn it up a notch in the NCAAs, but I’m also at a loss to explain why.

    Mason winning would be doubly fun for me since they’re local. One of their players is even from here in Hyattsville, which is pretty cool.
