Ten random things: March 17

Ten teams I picked to advance to the third round of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament:

  1. University of Arizona
  2. Purdue University
  3. Ohio State University
  4. University of Texas at Austin
  5. Florida State University
  6. George Mason University
  7. University of Cincinnati
  8. University of Notre Dame
  9. West Virginia University
  10. University of Connecticut

For the first time in a good many years, I am taking part in an NCAA pool. I didn't know who to pick, so I just pulled up President Obama's bracket and copied his choices. He knows a lot more about basketball than me, plus if I do poorly I can blame him. I figure that by blaming him for something that isn't his fault and that he had no control over, it will give me a better understanding of what it's like to me a member of the Tea Party. However, so far we're doing OK. We picked Louisville over Morehead State, but so did 18 of the other 21 people in the pool, and the two who picked Morehead State both thought they'd be playing Vanderbilt in the third round. (The President and I correctly picked Richmond to beat Vandy.)
