Let’s Talk Upsets…

th

I can hardly believe it. Β I join a family pool for March Madness and BOOM, just like that I’m out because I picked Michigan State (a number 2 seed, which apparently means nothing) to win the whole thing and they get beaten the first time they play…

Stupid basketball games…

  1. Go anyone who plays Kensucky! Today it’s IU. I’m a big Hoosier fan today, even with those candy-striped warmup pants. Beat the Kittens! πŸ˜ƒ

    1. I can root for anybody today since stupid Michigan state lost. My niece and nephew both went to IU, so that’s okay. I should have just gone with Duke or Villanova…

      1. Without my Cards in it, I didn’t even fill out a bracket, and I’m a bball fanatic. So at this point, I’ve pledged support to ‘Nova and Maryland to two fellow bloggers. And, of course, ANYONE playing Kensucky! Go Hoosiers (for today at least)! πŸ˜ƒ

      2. I was game and my brothers were like, oh, it doesn’t matter who you pick. Well, I guess it does! I think my nephew has those striped pants from IU, I remember a picture on Facebook — kind of awful! πŸ™‚

      3. Worn ’em forever. They’re just up the road from here, and we’ve played them a lot over the years. No love lost. But today? Beat the Kittens! πŸ™‚

      4. So, you are in Louisville? Hubby is from TN and we live around Chicago. I’ve driven through Lousville a bunch of times on the way to TN to see his family…

    Diane, I had Michigan State to win it all. I believe I read somewhere almost 25% of all the people submitting brackets on a couple of sites did as well. It’s hard to explain because Middle Tennessee only got in because they won their conference tournament…and in that tourney’s championship game they struggled mightily against much lesser competition. Yet, they jumped out to a huge lead and Michigan State let them believe they could pull the upset and so they did. Next year we’ll do better…or not! πŸ˜€

  7. Cal and Michigan, and MSU, too — all gone in the first round. Bracket busted.

    I should have just chosen based on “places I’d prefer to live” or “cutest mascot” something sporty like that. πŸ™‚

    1. Me, too! Who knew Hawaii would win the first round?? I should have just gone with Duke like I usually do — we have all the shirts πŸ™‚ But, yes, teams with dog mascots or something would be just as good a system!
