I didn’t see the games this weekend, but I’ve been told they were decent. Tonight is the final game between Illinois and UNC. My friend June is the leading UNC person and her co-worker Chris is the leading Illinois person in the pool I run at my office.
My co-workers are very angry that a non-co-worker will win the $400.
I’m just mad *I’M* not winning the $400.
Okay, so I’m coordinating the basketball pool at my office and this weekend I couldn’t believe some of the games. I mean, Kansas, Wake, UConn, Gonzaga, Boston College and Oklahoma all lost by the second round and they were top-ranked teams in the tourney!! Needless to say everyone’s sheet suffered this weekend, so it’s still anybody’s $400 to win.
As for me, my Duke sheet is languishing at the bottom with no hopes of rising high enough to win – there are at least 7 people with Duke ahead of me. My Kentucky sheet is second to another Kentucky sheet, and we have different picks in the next round – she can’t get any more points in the Albuquerque bracket, whereas I have Louisville going another round. She also has Illinois beating Arizona in the Elite Eight, whereas I have Zona coming out on top and heading into the final game. So those games are key – if I can win those, then I’ll catch up and take the lead. Go Kentucky!
