i am awesome
Forgive my total lack of humility tonight. I am really good at bracketology, and, unlike the seven guys in our group who have created a total of 22 brackets between them, I am not afraid to commit and therefore pick pnly one bracket. The Doctor attributed my skill at tourney time to his belief that the NCAA tournament is the only time in life when women are capable of fully separating emotions from their decisions and men are not. I think he's right about that. I also think that paying attention to the numbers and specific skills of the teams gets you pretty far. Also, there are rules. A twelve-seed always beats a five-seed, although that may not happen this year since Old Dominion lost to Butler. Only two one-seeds make it to the Final Four. Sixteen-seeds and the Ivy League champion never win.
Anyway, my bracket did great today. Because I picked VCU to beat Duke and only got three games wrong (thanks a lot, Tech). I feel like dancing.
