President Barack Obama
I’ve just put in my ESPN March Madness Brackets for 2016.
2016 March Madness Challenge – ESPN – Digitalcitizen
President Obama has put in his Barackets.
I am 6 wins versus just 1 loss versus the POTUS during his Oval Office March Madness campaigns. Here’s hoping to finish strong at 7 and 1, with the North Carolina Tar Heels winning it all! 🙂
It’s been a fun filled eight years, Mr President. I’m so glad you decided to add this on to your presidential duties! It won’t be the same next year, even if you submit a celebrity pick. Good luck… though you know I only mean that in a limited capacity, right? 🙂
For the first time, I will be sharing my weekly NFL game picks that I will be submitting in my office pool, putting my reputation as an analyst on the line.
I will be using an analytical system I developed based on spreads provided by Las Vegas, and how well they tend to do when they provide certain spreads. I added a few other factors to lean my pick one way or another where the odds makers are about even in their performance. I developed this system last year and got 178 games of 256 correct. That was 10.4 per week on average, a 69% correct rate that was as good as the odds makers, and better than all the ESPN analysts.
Well, what can I say as a Broncos fan? We were beaten by a better team today. Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks and their fans on the Super Bowl win.
As for what I had asked before about believing in Destiny given that this were the year of the Horse, Destiny was not wrong. I just had interpreted incorrectly. Usually, in Western culture, symbols that flash up that coincide with something you believe in, usually means things are going to go your way. It seems, in Chinese astrology, those “born” or affiliated otherwise with the year of one’s birth or symbol, is slighted by it! It’s true! I’m not just making it up! Check this serious call on the Super Bowl according to Chinese Astrology!
“They absolutely will not win,” Chinese New Year adviser to the City of Sydney, Lin Abbott, said.
“According to Chinese philosophy, those born with the same zodiac sign as the year’s designated animal are going to have a particularly difficult year”, the same article also says.
Well, all I have to say is that watching this Super Bowl was the most painful TV and sports experience I have ever had. However, in looking for the silver lining in everything, all I can say is that the rest of this year should be easy for all the challenges I have set up for myself.
Congratulations again, Seahawks fans. Enjoy your victory!
I will still wear my Denver Broncos fleece jacket and hat proudly everywhere, of course. You don’t shy away from showing support for your team when times go bad. That’s when they need you most. And I’ll just take all the taunts and such the way I should… like a man.
And I’ll stop making Chinese astrology calls. I know Tarot cards, not Chinese astrology… even if I am Asian and have a Chinese last name. 🙂
