One of these years, I will learn this lesson: chalk pays.
Sure, I loved hassling those who entered the Ninth Annual Uncle Crappy NCAA Final Four Challenge (Brought To You By Bocktown) without taking any risks. But this year especially, those who did are sitting pretty.
Because I don’t start awarding points until we get down to the Final Four, I won’t have any actual standings until after this weekend’s games — but that didn’t stop me from taking a quick look just to see how everyone is doing. This is not an especially deep examination — I don’t look at whether both of your championship teams are available, for example — but we can still get a decent idea of who’s still alive and who is struggling.
All four alive (pretty much self explanatory):
- My mom
- Doctor Lunchbox
Three plus (You have three of your four alive, including your championship pick):
- Aunt Annoyed Angel
- Sports Chump
- Curl Girl Michelle
- The Mysterious Terry Coyne
- Father Spoon
Two plus (You’ve lost half of your picks, but your champ is still alive):
- Grandpa Caldwell
Blutarsky potential (No more than two picks left, and your champ is done):
- Uncle Crappy
- Mrs. Crappy
- Dana Bee
That’s a whole mess of NAUCNFFC contestants who have a solid chance at our Bocktown gift card, boys and girls. Regardless of where you stand, I hope yinz enjoy the games this weekend.
