We’re down to the final game of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and, for the purposes of the Fourth Annual Uncle Crappy NCAA Final Four Challenge, we’re down to two contestants who can win it all.
There are a bunch of you — four, specifically — who picked North Carolina as your eventual champion, but just one of you, Kewyson, had a pretty good head start heading into the weekend by picking three of his Final Four correctly. He holds four points going into Monday night’s game, and a win by the Tar Heels would give him seven, an insurmountable lead over Mystery Michelle and Carolina Boy, who would each end up with six, and Carla, who would end up with five.
And although her native North Dakota isn’t exactly Big Ten country, BurghBaby did me proud — she’s the only one of us who picked Michigan State to win it all. If Sparty comes through, BB will leapfrog everyone else to take our title.
What will Kewyson or BB win? I’m not saying the prizes will necessarily be the same, but just a day ago, Father Spoon received his Fabulous Prizes* for winning last year’s THAUCNFFC — an impressive trophy and an autographed picture of Uncle Crappy, circa 1984 and all the associated feathery-haired goodness. Kewyson already has one of the those pics — he would have received his something like 24 years ago — so I might have to come up with something else for him if Carolina wins tomorrow night.
But. BB? If you win? I guarantee one of those pictures will be yours.
*Prizes not actually fabulous.
