The HBP 2013 Bracket

without comments

The problem with doing your bracket on a day you’re not drinking is that it ends up being pretty conservative. I really want to put VCU in the Final Four but just can’t make it happen. Oh well. Enjoy, if you’re into that sort of thing. And if you’re not, I might be back with something substantive tomorrow. Woohoo!2013 bracket

In other news, if I had a kid who was in college, I’d want him to be Kelly Olynyk. How cute is he, his hair, and his headband?

One Shining Moment: 2011

without comments

I’m not gonna lie. That “One Shining Moment” montage they play after every NCAA basketball championship game doesn’t make me, like, outright cry, but it brings a tear to my eye every time. I’m not even (very) embarrassed to admit this.

As we get ready for tonight’s game, which, frankly, I don’t care all that much about (I picked North Carolina to win, oops — guess I’m going with Kentucky, even though they’re the favorite, because I’m sick of Kansas), let’s take a moment to remember last year last year’s shining moments, complete with my favorite NBA rookie, Kenneth Faried.

The HBP 2012 Bracket

without comments

It’s not the most exciting bracket of all time (I did think about going crazy with VCU or MSU, but just couldn’t do it), but here is my official 2012 bracket. Good luck with your picks!

2011 Bracket (New & Improved)

with one comment

There were a few things I couldn’t live with in my original bracket, so I made some changes. The new version is here. It’s mostly boring with a tiny dash of batshit crazy.

(I’m considering this my “official” bracket, but I entered the old one in a pool for $$.)

I did my 2011 bracket (you can get it here — sorry, it’s a pdf). It’s more conservative than I’d like, but I’m having a hard time changing any picks. That said, I reserve the right to make changes before picks lock (I’ll let you know if I do that). Update: I did that! The new post is here.

Good luck with your brackets this year!

2010 Bracket

without comments

Here is my 2010 bracket (pdf). Enjoy!

P.S. I like Richmond to win more than one game, but I can’t really see anyone other than Villanova coming out of the South.

If you like him so much, why don’t you marry him?

Congratulations to Luke Harangody and ESPN on their recent engagement! It looks like the wedding plans are going well, and I like the green Lacoste towels on your registry!

ETA: I just received word that my boyfriend Jon Garland signed a one-year deal with the Diamondbacks. I do not approve of him hanging out with such a team (stay away from Eric Byrnes!), but at least this will bring him to Denver.
