I am a firm believer that skill has very little to do with a set of winning Brackets. A number years ago…early 90’s we had a pool going at the school where I worked. I know for a fact that the Mens P E Teachers met at least twice after school to analyze the available data before making individual picks. Most of us used what ever knowledge, gut feelings, and wild-ass-guesses we had to do our entries. We had what I would nicely call a genuine blonde airhead receptionist in the office who bragged on how cute the Michigan boys (Fab Five, I think) looked in their baggie-blue and gold.
Needless to say she won the pool, and the Coaches, as a group, had a firm grip on the last 5 places in the pool !!!
I love these days, even if I get eyesore about mid-way thru the third game of the day. Thank Heavens for Hi-Def TV. It really makes a difference !
I have received three emails from some of my kids reminding me that ‘voting’ against Louisville could put future grandkid visits in jeopardy. I don’t think that would be a bad thing (for awhile) !!
