They did it!  Philadelphia has a winning sports team!  I’m so off the chart excited I can’t think straight!  It was such a close game, too.  Exactly the kind of thing you would hope for in a national championship.  The lead changed back and forth multiple times.  I think the largest lead by either team was only 6 points.  So evenly matched, it went right down to the wire! Watch this!

 

And my bracket?  Out of the hundreds of thousands of people I was up against, I ranked 6805th.  I know that doesn’t sound all that great but statistically I’m in the 100th percentile!  Not bad for a girl, right?!?  I hereby claim the title “Queen of the Brackets!”  Until next year, my friends!

Bracketology: my picks

So I filled out 5 brackets, not 14! I have several methods for selecting my teams and here’s how it goes:

1. The automatic picks – all the higher ranked teams are auto selected. This bracket is called Meg Wings It.

Here is the final four: Kansas, Oregon, UNC and Virginia with Oregon winning it all.

2. The selections of my heart – the teams I’m rooting for like my hometown 3: Villanova, Temple and St. Joe’s. This bracket is Meg Pens a Win.

My final four: Villanova, Baylor, UNC, Michigan St. with Villanova winning it all.

3. & 4. The scientific brackets – I do my homework, carefully analyze possible upsets, listen to the experts and decide. These are Meg Authors a Win and Meg Writes a Win, respectively.

Two sets of final four:

Kansas, Oregon, UNC, Michigan St. With Michigan St. Winning the final

Kansas, Oklahoma, UNC, Michigan St. With UNC winning the final.

5. A fun bracket! Thanks to Deb of once upon a hot flash for this suggestion: choose the team based on their location and which place you’d rather live! Called it Meg Goes With D.

Fun final four: Colorado, Oregon, USC, Utah and Oregon takes the win!

I’ve entered these five into three bracket challenges so if you want to check them out, I’m in The Capitol One Visa, NCAA March Madness 2016 and the ESPN Sports center challenges!
