We’ve reached our Final Four of the NCAA Tournament, and, alas, there won’t be any underdogs like Virginia Commonwealth or Butler this year. Naw, nothing but traditional powerhouses this year: Next Saturday will bring us Kentucky versus Louisville and Ohio State versus Kansas. Not chalk or anything — there’s only one No. 1 seed there — but hardly anyone is shaking up the system. So, how are you doing with your picks? The leader of our New York Magazine pool is “pribut1971,” who nailed three of the Final Four teams and has Kansas over Kentucky in the national title game. The top pool pick with Kentucky favored to win is someone awesomely named “dukakis1988.” Ohio State? “pr9000.” Only one person in our entire pool picked Louisville to win the national championship: “vintown,” whose bracket is otherwise completely busted. Anyway, we’re down to the Final Four, which means you can start focusing on baseball now. (Oh, and sorry, ‘Cuse.)
