March Madness 2011: Nature Blog III
1. Volume. There are 32 first round games – oh, my bad, second round games now that we have this “First Four” crap. Even when most teams are well-known, I still have to spend a good 30-45 minutes researching.
3. Step Plus Abs. I went to that class at the gym, and holy crud, it was hard, and I am tired. But the biggest obstacle…
5. High Standards. I have a confession to make that borders – nay, belly flops – on pompousness. How can I possibly top two years of hilariousness? How do you outdo gems like these?
9 Villanova Wildcats maul the 8 George Mason Patriots, much to the delight of haters of America.
13 Princeton Tigers over 4 Kentucky Wildcats. To be honest, this is a hunch pick: though I’d imagine Wildcats to be scrappier than Tigers, these Tigers went to an Ivy League school, so they must be pretty smart.
15 LIU over 2 UNC. Tarheels are an annoyance in this bracket, and they’re also a powerhouse, so they’re a perennial issue for me. My logic: a)their heels are stuck in tar, so they can’t catch any birds or flee from an attack and b)do y’all watch Glee? Didn’t Kurt sing a beautiful version of the song “Blackbird”? Well, that’s LIU’s mascot. WINNER!
