The HBP 2013 Bracket

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

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.


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!
