To say that this year’s NCAA Tournament has busted brackets would be an understatement. An especially Mad March has eviscerated chalkboards and creative picks alike, demolishing so-called experts in the process. We’ve now got a Final Four of Kentucky, Connecticut, VCU, and Butler, which is totally what I would have picked had I filled out a bracket (which totally would have been called “Never Bet Against a Man Called Shaka“). Oh well. Let’s see how The Sports Section NCAA Pool stands, shall we? Chris OC’s “See You in LA Marvin” currently floats atop the pool of five hundred, but a highly unlikely UNC-Kansas final pick means that our current leader is maxed out for points. Nipping at Chris’s heels are Steve Stetson, justin, another Chris, and … hey! Joe Posnanski! Remember that the individual with the winning bracket gets to write a post in this space about anything they like (bees, lentils, macramé, Afro hats), not to mention reverence and adoration from all humankind.
