Last week was a nice bounce back from the disastrous week 2 that most people would have had. I went 13-3 to stand at 32 correct for the season. That’d be 1 behind the lead among the ESPN analysts, who are only ahead of me due to remarkable weekly scores they had last week, which wouldn’t be typical of their past performance.
This week there are a handful of tough games to pick but I’m confident I’ll do 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 ESPN Brackets
President Obama’s Barackets
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. 🙂
