Your NCAA tournament bracket is hosed, right?
I mean, mine is, because I had Kansas winning the whole thing like a jillion other people. Barack Obama’s is because he did too, in spite of the fact that he could not be satisfied with the whole health care thing and had to jinx my Maryland Terrapins by picking Michigan State to prevail on his clearly premeditated Sunday of win for the ages.
That up there is President Obama filling in his bracket last year, when he was correct about North Carolina. Holy NIT, what a difference a year makes, huh?
Anyway. He is, “like the rest of America, examining the rubble of his bracket,” the White House said. That’s what he gets for saying MSU had a great coach while Maryland had a great player. Yeah. That’s what he gets.
But I have rubble too, and a star point guard on his knees on the court at the end of a game and not because he was praising the Lord for a last-second miracle. So whatever. Bygones. Almost.
Blah blah blah. You probably know all about the rampant upsets in the first and, to a lesser degree, the second round of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament. But let’s talk about it some more, because I just can’t seem to stop. Georgetown failed. Nova’s all, “Whatever, going home, gonna stop by Costco and then watch the rest of this crap on tv.” Kansas is figuratively not in Kansas anymore – which, clearly, sent a lot of brackets airballing just north of the trash can.
And no, I do not want to talk about one-second-left randomly-perfect three-pointers.
