So, some of the animals and I decided to hold our own March Madness Bracket. The current standings are:
Allie: YES! I’m in the lead! WOOHOO!
Popsicle: This is such bullshit! She didn’t even know ANYTHING about basketball until I taught her! How is she beating me??!
Gia: Please note, I’m a respectable 2nd.
Allie: NOT AS GOOD AS FIRST! WOOOOOOO!
Popsicle: …I watched all season, I read all the expert analysis…
Kitty: I’m not complaining. I’m not doing bad at this game thing. First time playing!
Popsicle: Are you kidding? Why are your picks doing so well??
Kitty: I just picked the cat-like teams.
Gia: Kitty, you know you can’t seriously pick yourself to win the whole tournament.
Kitty: Fine, then Kentucky. WILDCATS FOREVER!!
Popsicle: This is so unfair.
Allie: Why are you so bad at this game, honey?
Popsicle: FUCKING MISSOURI! I had them in my final four!!!
Gia: Sorry, bud. Least you’re not as bad as Ducky.
Ducky: What do the numbers by the teams mean?
Gia: They’re the seeds, Ducky.
Ducky: OHHHHHHH NOW I get it.
Ducky: No. What are seeds?
Allie: The 1 seed is best! Right honey?
Allie: So when they play a 16 seed, the 1 seed is probably going to win. Right honey?
Allie: And so a 2 seed is more likely to beat a 15 seed…
Popsicle: That’s what you’d THINK. Fucking Missouri and Duke.
Kitty: Ducky, you’re fucking terrible at this game.
Ducky: I know….
Kitty: But do you? I mean you picked Harvard to go to the final four. And you picked TEMPLE to win it! TEMPLE!
Ducky: I like them…
Kitty: It’s like you deliberately picked the wrong team EVERY time. I mean if you had flipped a coin you’d have a better bracket than you do right now.
Ducky: You never know! I could come back and win it!
Gia: Um, no Ducky. No, you can’t. Both of your finals teams are out, as a ¾ of your final four teams and 6 out of 8 of your elite 8 teams.
Ducky: …is that bad?
Gia: Kitty, be nice.
Kitty: Okay okay. Ducky, I am sorry….
Ducky: Thank you-
Kitty: - THAT YOU’RE SO TERRIBLE AT THIS GAME.
Allie: I’m number one! I’m number one!
Allie: Don’t worry babe. I’ll share my prize with you. What do I win, Gia?
Gia: Remember, you all put 5 bucks in? Winner gets the money.
Popsicle: So unfair.
Allie: I’ll give it to you honey! So you can use it to buy me a present. That way, we both win!
Popsicle: Can’t wait.
Kitty: It’s not over yet, Allie.
Gia: I agree with Kitty. It’s still anyone’s game.
Kitty: …except Ducky’s.
Well, it's still early. Are you guys in any March Madness pools? How are your brackets doing?
