The first weekend of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament is behind us, leaving many brackets busted and many hearts broken.
Let’s take a look at the Idiots’Hoopla standings, shall we?
Congratulations to Stoneaveballer 2, who leads the way with 470 points. Although bloller is technically tied for first, given that he chose Maryland (whose tourney run ended last night) as national champion, his stay atop the leaderboard is going to be so short-lived that I think it only kind to send him packing at this point.
I take a certain pride in noting that only four among our leaders took the easy road in picking Kentucky. Even if they have the last laugh (as nearly every expert predicts they will) in the end.
I admire vwishna1, Wild About Oubre, and East Liberty Skunks for their vision in picking Oklahoma, Gonzaga, and Virginia to cut down the nets.
But not as much as I admire Queen Ilea for joining me in selecting the Blue Devils to win it all.
So you know, Queen Ilea is two years old; that she and I reached the same conclusion makes me take a moment of pause. But just a moment.
