Another year, another bracket, and some Obama love

Today begins the best sporting event of the year. I'll likely post bracket updates as we go.

If you want to know who I picked, you can pretty much look at President Barack Obama's bracket. The president and I are very much on the same page here.

We have the exact same Final Four, championship game, and champion. We have 7/8 Elite Eight picks that are the same. The biggest difference is the opening round, where he predicted a few too many 12- and 13-seed upsets in my opinion.

Round-by-round, here are our comparisons with the differing picks in parentheses:

27/32 (UNLV/UNI, Vandy/Murry St, Temple/Cornell, Texas A&M/Utah St., Purdue/Siena)
13/16 (Xavier/Pitt, Notre Dame/Baylor, Purdue/Utah St./Texas A&M)
7/8 (West Virginia/Marquette)
4/4
2/2
1/1

So that's it for now. Here's to enjoying the best sporting event of the year! And may everyone's brackets this year be better than they were last year...

It's called "one and done!" Its tough to be a sports fan in San Diego...The team probably had a nice afternoon in Providence.

True, but when I compare your weather with ours, I stop feeling sorry. :)

We've been to California all 3 years of our marriage and are heading out again this summer with out 6-month-old twins in tow. I've been to every state and California is still my favorite.

But yes, as far as sports teams go, my condolences on the short stick that you all seem to have drawn. At least you've still got an NFL team. That's more than your neighbors to the north can say.
