Pathetic, really, is the word to describe it. Jashed was the only one of the three of us to pick ONE of the final four teams, and he still came in last (as he should have given that he picked 34 winners, which was the lowest total of the three of us).
So, the downright desultory outcome is that the guy who set up the contest won it, without picking any of the final four teams (much less the winner). That is ridiculous, and you all should be ashamed of yourselves.
Especially if you had an idea that Butler could end up in the title game tonight…
And if you’re interested in seeing something that is the polar opposite of pathetic, consider setting some time aside on Tuesday night to watch the Women’s Finals featuring what might legitimately be the most dominant team/program in the history of collegiate sport (University of Connecticut) playing against another powerhouse (Stanford).
UConn has won 77 games in a row (their last loss was in 2008), and they’ve won every game of the streak by ten points or more (by an average of 32.5 points per game, in fact). They are dominant. Stanford lost to UConn earlier this year and beat everybody else. They lost last year in the finals to UConn after beating everyone else. In other words, these two teams have beaten every other team they’ve played (not counting each other) for two years running.
Should be a good game. (In poetry, they call that litotes, I believe)
