With one game still remaining in the Elite 8 of the 2018 Men’s NCAA March Madness tournament (Duke vs Kansas), former President Barack Obama’s Barackets is DONE! He has Villanova in the Final Four, but because he predicted (eliminated) Michigan State would beat them next game, Villanova will be getting no more points for Obama this year. The former POTUS had UNC and Virginia as the other Final Four teams, both of whom had been eliminated early.
So where does this leave the Barackets in the ESPN Standings?
Apparently, you can see them ahead of time as shown below! Maybe this has been going on for years. I don’t know. I live in Canada! We don’t get those commercials here in 2018 even if you did watch the big game, unless you had some specialized channels! I always thought you had to at least wait till game day to see them, if not after, but not any more!
Besides, it’s only the Patriots this year. Just watch the commercials now and save yourself some time Sunday! 🙂
I will have a lot of “performance” related moments this year, and before each, I will be telling myself to “make it count”! Some of these moments will be very small, like playing through a piano piece without mistake during practice at home, or on a public piano. However, some will be big and important, like the higher than annual average number of big consequence decisions I expect to make this year.
I picked MAKE IT COUNT over IT’S SHOW TIME because some of these bigger moments will be serious in a rational way to finalize something, rather than an emotional perk up before a “performance” to come. However, I imagine there’ll be lots of moments where I’ll start out with IT’S SHOW TIME, followed by MAKE IT COUNT, as a double mantra.
NICHE (n.) – a place or position suitable or appropriate for a person or thing; a distinct segment of a market.
NICHE will be my word of the year for 2018, as in if you were just going “dabble” in something, find or make your NICHE & excel to stand out.
