March Madness! A Vanilla Rant
I was doing alright through the first and second rounds, then Syracuse lost. Followed by Gonzaga, Notre Dame, and Texas. Sigh. That's what I get for picking a Texas team, I don't even like them. Usually they are a safe bet for at least a few rounds.
Next comes the Sweet Sixteen. With Texas out, I really needed Duke to win. That didn't happen. I switched the channel to watch a different game for a while, thinking they had it in the bag. Then I see the final score, they lost to Arizona 77-93! What is happening here?? Glad I didn't pick Duke to go all the way, which made me win my bracket pool last year. Next, Wisconsin lost to Butler. I have a friend from Wisconsin and if I were a top, I'd so be holding her accountable for that. Lol. But she needn't worry because I'm not a top. ;-) The Duke and Wisconsin losses bumped me from first place to second in my bracket pool. But one more correct pick and I could be back at first. No such luck. Next, number 1 seed Ohio State goes down with a 60-62 loss to Kentucky.
The Elite 8 begins tonight. I'm hoping for wins from Florida, Connecticut, and Kansas as all my other picks are shot to hell. Kansas is now the only #1 seed left in the tournament, and who I picked for my ultimate winner. Please Kansas, go all the way! I need that money. Lol.
Maybe a little spanking fun could be some added motivation for the team?
