The President's Final Four: Louisville, North Carolina, Memphis, PittIf you look at that photo above, it looks like the Prez is going chalk this year. But then again, so isn't the majority of the world, including myself. I just don't think any of the lower seeds have a shot this year, but of course that will be wrong come April, and we'll have four 6-seeds in the semis.
The President’s bracket fulfilled a campaign promise made to Katz during an October 19, 2008 interview, for a story about Craig Robinson, Oregon State head basketball coach and brother-in-law to the President.
Said Katz, “President Obama made his picks as a sports fan, not as a politician. He was knowledgeable about the teams, and was even up to date on the latest injuries involving the contenders. He was confident with his picks and delivered an on-camera pep talk for the team he picked to win it all. It was clear that he enjoyed filling out his bracket like the rest of America.”
