So close, but so much remaining danger. If Gonzaga wins tomorrow night, I win my first NCAA Tournament brackets ever, after nearly 20 years of playing. If Gonzaga loses, there will be no record (but this blog) of this near-historic run. No matter how the game turns out, the last few weeks of the tournament have been great. Northwestern’s appearance and win, lots of last-second excitement, and my not-well-researched bracket somehow rising in the standings to have a shot. In certain months, a streak of pointless fun can be exactly what you need.
Capitol Hill friends, 1st out of 10, but trouble.
NU friends, 1st out of 20, but trouble.
Work bracket, tied for 1st out of 25, but trouble.
