I made a wager with one of my friends that no one in the country had all four final four teams correct. Well, i was wrong.

I give him props for picking the final four, but his overall score for the championship game is kinda funny. UCLA will never see 97 points.

Turns out the guy who picked the Final Four correct, Tim McKenna, is a professional photographer based in Punaauia, Tahiti.

That is one lucky person B-)

Yeah well he (or she) can't know much about college BB... After all he picked George Mason to make the Final Four. ;-)

Of course, it could just be the sour grapes talking. 3 of my final four lost in the sweet sixteen.

On a serious note, there are so many brackets in the country filled out that there is somebody out there who will have a perfect (or near perfect brackett) even in this year of upsets. almost everyone i know (including a ton of women) have filled out brackets, so just by dumb luck someone will get it right.

Ya i noticed that too. Which leads me to believe that this guy got really really lucky, kind of like that women five years ago that picked every game correct based soley on their jersey colors.

Props to him though. Lucky is everything in these type of contests.

I came to work this morning and recieved an email of the standings for one of my pools. I had the rest of the final four right except for Uconn losing, so I get 1st no matter what.

Awesome way to start my day. ;-D
