NCAA Bracket

Posted by Quasar on Monday, March 14, 2011

If anyone's interested, I set up an NCAA Bracket a few years back that we ran at Excelsiornews. I changed the name of the group to Corona, but it seems the orignal url is kind of stuck, so it's still called excelsiornews. Anyway, here's the link (it's supposed to be anyway): http://excelsiornews.mayhem.cbssports.com/e

I have last place pretty much locked up.  Don't even try to overtake me.

Are your basketball predictions better than your box office predictions?

At one point I was tied with the mighty Drakemd for last place, until he diabolically tricked me into thinking the goal was to get a higher score.

Goiter, that would be a no.  Most of my box office predictions hovered around 75-80%.  Through the first two rounds of the tournament, I have predicted 62.5% of the games correctly.

Quasar, of the 16 teams left, I only have 4 of them left advancing to the Elite 8 and 2 of those advancing to the Final Four, so my chances of pulling ahead of you are pretty slim.

I will be pulling for Butler tonight. If they win, I guarantee they'll make a movie about them. As impressive as it'd be, they'll still change stuff in the movie, like have them win on their first trip, and it'll be the coach's first year instead of his fifth, and they'll beat Duke instead of UCONN.

Watch the script transform into Matt Howard actually being a butler before he walked on the basketball team. Then watch the team not be Butler anymore.

Butler got massacred in the second half. Serves them right for messing up my bracket in the Southeast division.

19% shooting for the game, glad I stopped watching after halftime.

So who won the bracket?

I held a slim 1 point lead at the Elite Eight stage, but then no one got any of the Final Four right, so the tally at that point became the final. Dr. Ake, however, won the highly coveted position of last place.

I looked back through the history of these brackets going back to the Excelsior days and I am last, if not close to last, every single year.  Finally, I have a talent!

Quasar, was your 1 point win over Negs?  I can't tell since it uses "real" names.

When you discover you have a talent, you need to use it everywhere you can.

Thanks for backing me up Quasar.  I plan to use it at the bowling alley tonight.  Our office is going bowling as a team building event.  I will only bond with certain team members after the required number of drinks.

Hey, Drake, you wanna start a Celebrity Death Guessing Game pool with me?  It'll just be the two of us.  Winner takes a No Prize.

Am I guessing how a celebrity dies or when?  Oh, who cares, I'll get it wrong anyway.
