March Madness!

I watched a lot of bas­ket­ball this week­end. In fact, I think I watched all or part of every game played. I know you’re impressed.

Lots of peo­ple out there filled out brack­ets. I was one of them, in fact, I took it to the extreme: I filled out 18 brack­ets total.

How many of my brack­ets are still good? Only one of them, I missed on only a cou­ple of teams. Unfor­tu­nately, that bracket WAS NOT entered into my Bracket Chal­lenge against some Z103 listeners.

So what are the odds of get­ting a per­fect bracket? One in 34.9 BILLION. Yeah, you are over 3,500 times more likely to win the Power­Ball lot­tery. True story.

I have heard of peo­ple pick­ing their brack­ets in unique ways, like choos­ing the team based on their record, their uni­form col­ors, even their mas­cots. I did a ver­sion this year called the “Coin Toss Bracket”, where heads rep­re­sents the higher seed and tails rep­re­sents the lower seed. So far, out of the three “Coin Toss” brack­ets that I did, only one of them still has the Cham­pi­onship game intact.

Regard­less of your thoughts on March Mad­ness, this is the great­est time of the year sports-wise. Enjoy it while it lasts!

Oh, and here are some tour­na­ment game-winning buzzer beat­ers over the years:
