The NCAA tournament is upon us. So if you don’t want to hear about brackets, matchups, and his my strategy will work this year I invite you to hit the little “x” in the right hand corner. After much though and far more hours of research than was probably needed I settled on my picks. Below is the tale of a man anxiously watching gametracker, twitter and google alerts for scoring updates until I got home.
11:15- Holy crap it’s tip-off! I wonder if I should change the Harvard-New Mexico game…nah. What are the odds of an upset?
11:16- Should I change it though? Amaker is a good coach.
11:17- Nah, Harvard will destroy them.
11:30- Michigan St. is looking good. Real good, glad they’re in my final four.
11:51- This Butler game is closer than I’d like. I have those scrappy fuckers going deep.
11:55- What the shit Butler?!?!?!
11:59- Ok, I’ve calmed down. It’s tied and all will be ok.
12:45- No one can hit anything in this Pittsburgh-Wichita St. game, if both teams could lose I’d choose that option.
1:10- Alright St. Louis, you’re a trendy pick…don’t screw me over.
1.32- Well, touché St. Louis you look really good.
1:33- WHY DIDN’T I HAVE THEM GOING FURTHER?!?!?!
1:55- This Memphis-St. Mary’s game is too close for comfort…
1:58- 8 point run by Memphis, much better.
3:00- Memphis…if you fuck this up for me…
3:01- Whew. St. Mary’s played their ass of in the second half.
3:15- Just looking in on this Marquette-Davidson game and what the shit?!?!
3:16- Seriously Marquette!
3:50- Whoa Gonzaga, remember this is Southern now.
3:59- SERIOUSLY GONZAGA. THEY ARE A 16!!!!!
4:02- Looking like a genius right now with this Oregon over Oklahoma State pick though.
6:00- Just got this update….I really regret not having Louisville go further.
6:01- Marquette won? Thank you Vander Blue.
6:05- Holy shit…I’m perfect so far. Could this be the year? Could I win a million dollars for having a perfect bracket?!?!?!
.7:30- Well it would appear UNLV is not down with me and my perfect bracket.
8:40- Well UNLV, you seriously gonna do this to me?!?!
8:45- Come on Missouri!
9:00- Well screw you UNLV.
9:05- I can’t do this anymore. I need to go to sleep. Colorado St. will falter.
6:15 am- WHAT?!?! God damn it Missouri.
Well folks, here is a recap of the first day of the NCAA tourney. After my first 16 picks, I have correctly chosen 13 out of 16. Will my luck continue? Probably not, but a chocolate man can dream.
