We Have a Winner (and it's Not UConn)

In what was not only a terrible college basketball game, but was surely the worst championship game at any level of college basketball of all time, Connecticut beat Butler Monday night to conclude the March Radness contest.

Congrats to Aaron S, whose "Smalltown Ballers" bracket defeated everyone in the group. Aaron was the only person to pick either of the participants in the final game and also successfully predicted Connecticut as the ultimate victors. Aaron, I don't know who you are! Please e-mail me as soon as you can.

Kevin and his confusingly-named, possibly Phish-related bracket ended up in second place almost by default. His big win was predicting UConn as one of the Final Four teams. (Kevin, by the way, has a standing agreement to accept his prize in the form of malt beverage and/or tuna melt form, so he won't be stealing anyone's Pedro Feliz relics.) The venerable Todd Uncommon landed in third. All of the above mentioned will receive prizes, which will be announced on Sunday. And finally, it wouldn't be a Cards on Cards contest without a reward for the worst bracket submitted. Quite frankly, I believe almost everyone deserved this award (myself included) but there can be only one "winner". Congrats (?) to The Lost Collector, who unseated Aqua-enthusiast AJ as the new last place finisher.
