For those of you who still have perfect brackets after the first full day of the NCAA tournament, congratulations. For those who have already had to tear their brackets up, you might not like this video.
The folks at ESPN decided to make an entire bracket based off a rat maze, picking the winners based on which rat finished the race first.
The final bracket may feature some wild upsets, but through the first day of the round of 64, the rat bracket is 15-1correctly picking every game on Thursday except for Pittsburgh taking down Colorado.
With that 15-1 record, the rats are in the top 0.2 percent of all ESPN bracketsand are probably doing better than you are right now.
The first couple of rounds are always full of surprises. The last rounds are much easier and the “obvious” winners are usually correct.
They didn’t pick too well for Friday’s matches.
“Umass trounced Duke.” Both lost before they could have that match up.
ESPN and Buffet’s challenges have no perfect brackets left. Memphis eliminated the last three for Buffet. SF Austin for ESPN.

I hope the rodents got a payoff. ESPN, not so much. Their greater than mere mortals wisdom (several but not all of them) wears thin quickly.
I’m not even going to read the article.
I’m sick and tired of Obama and his fricken basketball picks.
I don’t care how Pelosi and Reid pick their brackets!
For once the Dems get something right.
