One topic that will not be prominently featured in this blog is sports. But the annual basketball tournament is an exceptional event. When I lived in Kentucky I used to be quite good at predicting in the office pools. The tournament starts tomorrow, so herewith my forecast (text form - couldn't download an editable image of the brackets):
Sweet Sixteen: NC, Washington State, Louisville, Tennessee, Kansas, Villanova, Wisconsin, Davidson, Memphis, Michigan State, Marquette, Texas, UCLA, Western KY, Xavier, W. Virginia.
Elite Eight: NC, Louisville, Kansas, Wisconsin, Memphis, Texas, UCLA, Xavier
Final Four: North Carolina, Kansas, Memphis, UCLA.
Championship: Kansas to beat Memphis. Tiebreaker 155 points total in game.
Biggest upset: Davidson (10) over Georgetown (2)
Does anyone reading this blog really care about my predictions? Probably not. But I'm going to use this to illustrate a point about blogs and the internet when the tournament is completed.
