I do love a good competition, though, so I start paying attention around Super Bowl time, World Series time, and of course, March Madness. We fill out brackets every year and have a friendly bet. This year, with all the crazy upsets, my Final Four were all eliminated, and Matt only had Butler left, but even he had them losing in the semifinals! If Butler wins tonight, Kate will actually have won our family bracket, with her strategic preference for bear, dog, and cat mascots. She's a little nervous about her chances, given Duke's usual prowess. Butler loyalties (and UK's anti-Duke vendetta) aside, even, I would hate it if Duke won just because it has been such a fun tournament with all the underdogs and upsets, a #1 seed winning it all anyway would just be a real shame.
