Wednesday, March 16,, 2016 – Me and My Brackets
Our post today is brought to by the word Skullduggery – Skuhl-DUHG-uh-ree
It is a noun meaning:
- dishonorable proceedings, mean dishonest or trickery: bribery graft and other such skullduggery
- an instance of dishonest or deceitful behavior; trick
But enough about the presidential elections and the government.
Here is my completed bracket for the women’s NCAA Division I basketball tournament.
Yep – got the Baptists and the Catholics in Championship Game – Baylor and Notre Dame. As you can see I have Baylor and Texas A&M playing in the Sweet 16. When these two teams play it is known as a “bitter rivalry.” I am sure Coach Mulkey and Coach Blair will show clips from 2011 and the infamous clock issue. Should A&M pull an upset, I will not talk to my family for a week.
“Just Say No to Four” is my mantra for UConn. The University of Connecticut is a basketball dynasty in any league and Briana Stewart (Stewie) is one of the greatest collegiate athletes you will see – male or female. Nevertheless, Here’s What I’m Thinking – the odds are against you to repeat as National Champions for a fourth time. And you know Mulkey and Muffet have teams that can beat you. The scenery only changes for the lead Huskie and it is time for a change. So I am going with the Bears and the Creepy Leprechauns.
But first on March 19 The Fighting Texas Aggie Women must BTHO Missouri State.
I also completed a Division I Men’s Basketball Bracket. I used the Penny method for selecting the Championship Game – my favorite colors, mascots, funny sounding names, etc. My major criterion was schools from which I have graduated. Therefore I have Texas A&M playing Stephen F. Austin for the National Championship. Gig ‘Em Aggies and Ax ‘Em Jacks!
