So FINALLY! FINALLY! the Kansas Jayhawks managed to not let me down. Every year I pick them to go far, every year they get knocked out. This year, I have to confess, I picked them partially out of sheer stubbornness. I mean I thought they were good, but some part of me kind of thought they would choke and I’d be screwed again. But they didn’t! They were wonderful! Completely blew out UNC in a snoozefest of a Final Four (Memphis also beat UCLA rather handily), then beat Memphis in overtime. Overtime! Good stuff, really. And luckily no one else believed in them either. At least not in this pool. So… I roxored it, is basically what happened.
So… by turning in his bracket so late (missing the first two rounds entirely except for the points that everyone got), Shio saved Jimyo from being last! And only by 1 point! Geesh. CT is tied with Steve for second to last, also because Steve turned his in late. So yay? But you know what’s really yay? Let me just repeat, I WIN! And you know what, in fact, I had it sewn up by the Final Four cos no one called Memphis to the Finals and hardly anyone called Kansas. So yeah. And I already picked my prize, Yut’s gonna take me to Chicago. Okay we sort of planned it anyways, but now it’s my prize. And I got a handshake from Yut already. And now I’m the champion until next year. Gosh, I don’t think I’m going to get sick of that. :)
