Basketball--- now that's the orange ball with black stripes, right?

I filled out a bracket for the NCAA tournament this year. I did last year, too, I guess. And apparently, I have a reputation...

The Athletic Director at our school organized it all last year and he laughed at my picks. He still laughed at my picks. After the first weekend, though, he was just giggling at me because he couldn't believe I had the best picks of the whole school. Well, it went down hill very quickly after that and I ended up being the first person out.... way out. But last year I was notorious because I made lots last year's picks based on whether or not I liked a team's colors or their mascots (and a few other reasons but mostly on color and mascot).

So I thought I would try again this year. I have a very unique way of choosing teams for this year; I did something different, for the most part. For example, I really like the name Gonzaga because I like to say it and the way it rolls off my tongue: Gonzaga! Same with Marquette. So I picked 'em.

I also chose Kentucky because a woman at work who is a super person loves them. I picked Baylor because a cousin went there and I selected Notre Dame cuz my Uncle is a fan. I like the way the letter combinations of UNLV and VCU look- picked! I picked Montana for obvious Wild West love. I picked Harvard because I thought how cool it would be to have a smart and athletic team have success. Gotta pick Indiana since I'm a Midwest girl. I picked Kansas because their mascot is cute. And Ohio St because I like red.

I picked Duke to win it all because I want proof that something named Duke can be positive.

And as of this post.... well, my picks aren't doing that great. I've picked 14 wins and 11 losses. I don't think I'm going to sweep this tournament. Bummer.

But I don't think losing this is gonna kill me. I mean, there's always next year!

At least so far you have more wins than losses.
