The inaugural Instead of Texting Bracket Challenge ended at approximately 4:43 p.m. Sunday. With VCU’s win over top-seeded Kansas, the last shot that either Jimmy or I had for any of our picks to make the Final Four ended.
In a sense, you could say there really was no winner in our little competition.
Well, that’s not entirely true. There was a winner — me.
Like just about all of America (except for this guy), neither of us came anywhere close to picking the right Final Four. But thanks to a 26-for-32 first round, I didn’t fare quite as badly as my IoT partner.
So yeah, my victory may not have been pretty, but that’s not going to stop me from celebrating my One Shining Moment.
