A Look Into Kornheiser's Bracket (And The Sports Gal's Too!)

Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Every year the Washington Post makes a huge deal about Tony Kornheiser's bracket. He writes all of these cute notes on it and everyone laughs at his silliness. Well let's take a look shall we (click for larger).....

Umm, this actually isn't that bad. Damn...I was all set to make fun of him. About all you can pick on is the fact that he lost his shirt at Belmont's track...that's no fun. Let's try the Sports Gal....

Final Four: UCLA, Memphis, UNC, and USC
Championship: UNC over UCLA

We went to bed and I was pumping milk for my baby for the following morning. Bill somehow found the porn awards on Showtime and decided to keep them on for about 20 minutes while I was pumping milk for our son. You're supposed to think about wholesome things when you're pumping because it helps your milk let down, but Bill had no problem watching a show with gross clips and disgusting awards and cracking jokes like "I hope Courtney Cummz wins this one, she's due."
Damn, I can't make fun of her either. Oh well.....anyone know where Wilbon's brackets are?

Pulling back the curtain....

Tony's bracket is actually done by one of the college writers at the Post.

Shhh. Don't tell anyone.

This kind of bracket...with 5 total upsets is the result of last year's chalky tourney. Usually, we see 8-15 upsets. I think the chalk-people like TK will go back to finishing in the middle of their pools this year.

But I don't know why more media personalities don't go out on a limb or two. The only less chutzpah-y people are ESPN viewers, who think a 5 beating a 4 is unlikely at best.

I never knew TK was such a bracket wuss. You can't even pick a 12 over 5? A 6 as the lowest in the Sweet 16? Come on.

Anon: About ESPN viewers ... you have to remember that most people are going to pick the favorite, so even a mild upset is going to be picked by less than half.

Hey AA, ESPN.com just posted its 'expert' picks for things like Best Scorer and Best Defender, along with Final Four picks. Well Dickie V did ya one proud - under 'sleeper Final Four picks' after everyone else had made ballsy picks like Wisconsin or Louisville, Vitale made them look like idiots by saying this: "I only consider teams seeded fifth or lower as sleepers, and I don't think any will make the Final Four." Natch. Here's the link: http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/ncaatourney08/columns/story?id=3300182

DUH -- Wilbon's Final Four is Illinois, Northwestern, DePaul and Loyola of Chicago.
