Mayhem of March Madness
Final Four Recap
I am back from my 6th Final Four. It was great to be at a Final Four with UCLA
there. Even though they lost to Florida
on Saturday, it was a lot of fun. I couldn’t
count how many times that I was asked starting in the second half of the UCLA
game, if I was going to the Championship on Monday or was I going to be selling
my tickets. I had some sweet club level
tickets for Saturday so every Ohio State
or Florida fan in the area wanted
those seats for Monday. My Monday seats
were distant view seats. Check out my
link to my photos to see my seats. I was
continued to be asked if I was going to the game on Monday whiling walking
around the dome after the game trying to find 50% off UCLA shirts and even the
subway trip back to the hotel. People I
am a huge NCAA hoops fan, I was going to the ATL with or without UCLA.
Saturday, it seemed that Florida
slightly edged out Ohio State
fans with UCLA and Georgetown fans
far behind. On Monday, a lot of the
Gator fans must of driven up to the ATL. It was a huge Gator crowd for the
Championship game. Late in the game, the
Florida fans got into the “Just Like Football” chant.
For the second straight year, Florida
repeats as champion of the Men’s NCAA basketball tournament.
Going into the Championship game only 7 people were
guaranteed money. While
26 other people had to wait to the end of the game on Monday to see if they
could add their names to the top 20.
Florida winning the championship BS adds his name to the Mayhem of March Madness Hall of Fame. BS took the lead of the pool after the second
round and never gave it up. I know BS is
a huge Buckeye fan but his wallet got a lot thicker with the Buckeye lost on
Monday. UNDERDOG finished in second place.
UNDERDOG did not lose a game after the 2nd round. Kccool rounds out the top 3.
year we had 19 people pick the Final Four correct which brought the 15 year
total to only 43 people to pick the Final Four correctly. Only 9 of them placed in the money this
year. That makes 21 of the 43 people
didn’t cash by doing the almost impossible which is picking the Final Four
Thanks to all that participated and
once again made the pool a success.
Congratulations once again to the 20 winners and hope to see all of you
and some of your friends next year.
Check back in later in the month for the 2nd Annual NBA
Playoff Challenge will begin.
I will finish by saying “One Shining
