Sixteen of your Twelve-point-five-th Annual Uncle Crappy NCAA Final Four Challenge (Brought To You By Piper’s Pub) contestants had them in the final four.

Seven of us — including yours truly — picked them to win the whole thing.

No, I’m not talking about the UMBC Retrievers — no one had those guys making the Final Four. I’m talking about Virgina, which is now the only No. 1 seed in the history of the men’s tournament to lose to a No. 16.

I mean, it was fun to watch … and then we all remembered what it would do to our brackets.


I guess it’s not too early to start thinking about Blutarsky candidates, huh?

  1. I noticed a couple of years ago that when I completed a full entry and put for the $20 or so for entry, that I would root against teams just because I had picked the other to win – no other basis. I wasn’t focused on the moment for these kids – teams playing above their levels – making the shots – having a game of their lives. So, I’ve stopped doing full entries –

    Now, as a previous winner of TPFAUCNFFC, I have a lifetime invitation to at least see if I can make the cut – and since I cannot realistically enjoy the fabulous prize, I’m not as emotionally committed to my picks – so Go Retrievers!!
