We have a fundraiser at school: men’s NCAA brackets, $1 a sheet. As of today, my ranking is …. dead last. I have been assured that no one this year can do worse than I will, so my standing is secure.
I will get my $1 back as consolation.
Through the first round, I was holding my own, but my second round choices (including I am sorry to say both UK and IU) failed to meet my expectations. I am now watching Duke, one of my successful second-round picks, lose to LSU.
So, yup, my fate is sealed. Dead last. Oh, well, there’s always next year …
