I'm the only Card fan in my office bracket pool, even though we're not that rare here in Florida. I had to send this email to everyone in the pool today. I thought I would share it with you:
Something horrible happened to my bracket between the time I made my picks and today. Jason first pointed it out to me, and then I got a call from Brent. My bracket “The Bracket” has North Carolina winning the National Championship.
If you know me, you know I’m a Louisville Cardinal fan. I’ve filled out at least one bracket with Louisville winning the whole thing every year. I’ve been waiting for a year like this, when we might actually have a chance to actually pull it off. I only did one bracket this year, The Bracket, and I swear to you that I picked Louisville to finish on top. I don’t know what happened, but I feel sick to my stomach. Those UNC punks knocked my beloved Cards out of the tournament last year. There is no way I would pick them to accomplish anything more than getting there baby blue backsides handed to them by The Ville.
So if my bracket performs well enough to be in contention at the end, I ask that my final score be modified to show my true prediction. Even if it means declining the winnings (I won’t want the winnings then anyway, just a tissue).
So what do you think? Am I a drama queen, or what?
ps: I erased the exclation points after "Go Cards" just for you, Mike.
