In my head, the Dream Bracket of Idealism has reached levels of excitement that I’d previously associated only with Lady Gaga concerts and Obama circa 2008. We are winning, people. And not in the Charlie Sheen way.
Thanks to BYU and Wisconsin (and with an assist from Marquette, who I didn’t pick but who knocked Joe’s Syracuse out last night), I have 39 points to Joe’s 37. Can we call it now? Victory for me? Because, um, things get kinda rough from here on. Joe and I are both out of the southwest division entirely; Pittsburgh’s loss ruined my southeast bracket entirely. Arizona and UNC became my favorite teams overnight, and I could use a Florida loss in the worst way. Maybe BYU can pull it off? They are, after all, a 10-cow team.
