15th Annual Mayhem of March
Welcome back to the 15th Annual Mayhem of March Contest. I would like to thank all of the returning people and all of the rookies. Once again we had over 200 people enter. Where do you all come from? I have no idea but thanks for everyone for joining.
Turning to the 2007
Madness, where is the madness? There
were several close games but not a lot of upsets. There were only 5 lower seeds won in both the
first and second rounds. Six of the ten
upsets were either #9 seed over a #8 seed or a#5 seed over a #4 seed. There is no #11 seed like George Mason creating
havoc to everyone’s brackets this year. Could
this be the first year when all #1 seeds make it to the Final Four? Only 25 people picked all the top seeds to go
This pool is
primarily based in
Round 1 saw the current World Series MVP David Eckstein jump to the early lead by picking 31 out of 32 correct. A couple of years ago, I saw a segment on Eckstein during spring training and it showed David going to the public library to read his email because he didn’t have a computer. So if you see David at the public library in Jupiter,
, make sure you congratulate him on only missing one game in the first round. David Eckstein won 2 more games than the next best person. Ryan Ritter, Rivera and The Cats followed David in the first round by picking 29 out of 32 correct. Florida
Round 2 found BS picking 15 out of 16 games correct. That is no BS, he only missed 1 game over the weekend. Dumbledore is Dead, Kccool and Kahuna were the next best with 14 correct picks.
Only 4 people have been eliminated from the money. 124 of you still have a chance to claim the top spot.
The standings will be updated shortly after each game.
