Obama’s Barackets Had a Bad Day 4, But Still Doing “Well”

Day 4 saw President Obama’s ESPN March Madness 2014 Barackets fall from a percentile in the 90s to 73.7 as ranked teams fell. That said, it’s only a matter of a game or two’s difference that made the fall seem a lot bigger than it actually was.

My Brackets ended up in a tie with the POTUS after Day 4 by not having as bad a day as Obama’s Barackets. However, it’s all going to come down to who picked the eventual winner to decide this, given how much that is worth. I went with overall #1 ranked Florida, while Obama went with sentimental favourite Michigan State. I have an edge in the meanwhile with only 2 Elite 8 teams eliminated to Obama’s three, but that may only resolve things if neither Florida nor Michigan State wins.

Breather for now. Getting back to quotes and fashion posts for a few days. 🙂

Obama’s Barackets Still in Top 8% of Entries After Day 2

After Day 2, President Obama’s Barackets are slightly busted like the majority of entries. However, they’re still plenty good to be ahead or tied with 91.8% of entries after Day 2. That tie includes my entry. However, I have a slight probability edge among points remaining in that I didn’t lose a team slotted to make it to the Elite 8, like the POTUS did with Duke.

All this so far is great for having lots of teams left, and higher probability that you can get the remaining games right if it were a straight lottery (i.e. more tickets than others). However, it isn’t a straight lottery, and the stakes now double per game in the next few days in the Round of 32, at 20 points per game instead of 10 for the Round of 64. So things can go up or down hill REAL fast!

Let’s get it on!

NFL Draft Style Pro Bowl Reactions, Anyone?

The NFL just held its first draft style Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

  • There were lots of great hits and hard plays, not just half efforts you see in some other years.
  • Also tons of interesting dynamics of teammates versus each other, doling out some pretty awesome hits, no less.
  • Great two minute drills at the end of every quarter, including the last one down to the last second that saw Jerry Rice’s team beat Deion Sanders’ team 22-21 in a two point convert and missed field goal all in the past two minutes.

I LOVED IT!!! Did you?
