March Madness has us all in its grips, squeezing the picks out of us. Every year I sweat and swear as I fill out my bracket, knowing all along that my first round picks will be decent and then my bracket will go to sh-t. Its all I can do to have even just one team in the damn Final Four. So I was wondering if you all have any interesting ways of picking "toss up" games or filling out your backets in general.
One interesting tidbit I found on Yahoo is this"
Make difficult picks using the "mascot fight" theory
Two of the hardest games to pick in last year's first round were UCLA-Michigan State and Vanderbilt-Richmond. They were veritable toss-ups. But looking at these games in retrospect, they were all too easy to pick. Bruins vs. Spartans? Hmm, a vicious bear or a person who shuns the conveniences of modern living? I saw "Grizzly Man." I know how that story ends.
(I deleted the reference to "Friends" in that blurb because, well, "Friends" and NCAA basketball should never be uttered in the same discussion.)
