Rep. Gerry Connolly appeared on CNN today, and he stated that he is still “undecided” on the health care bill. Since he is still undecided, it is probably a good time to remind him of how voters really feel about Congress’s health care reform legislation. Perhaps, Connolly should remember the protests outside his office or the town hall meetings.
It’s that time of year again, where sports fans go crazy over March Madness, and thus meaning, the epic breakout of bracket pools. This year, as I fill out my bracket, I am quite sad that the NCAA Selection Committee has lost their minds with the selections. While Maryland was selected, the committee neglected to select Virginia Tech, who had a much better record than Wake Forest or Florida for that matter. Since I am a tad bitter, I would rather scrutinize the number one seeds.
Kansas: Of course, the Jayhawks are a great team. They have depth and good scoring. However, the Midwest region is filled with other great teams (Maryland being one of them). Don’t count out, Ohio State! The Buckeyes have been looking pretty good as well.
Syracuse: The Orangemen will go all the way…bank on it! With their superior ball handling and coming from the Big East (which is a pretty competitive league), I expect great things from this team.
Kentucky: Hmmm…almost losing to Mississippi State in the SEC Championship earns this team the honor of being #1. Well, they definitely need to improve, and I predict they will be ousted by Wisconsin in the Round of 8…if not before.
Duke: For the record, I hate Duke. You can guess why later. However, they are still the perennial team and one to beat. However, the South region proves to guarantee Duke a spot in the final four, if not the National Championship. The only caveat is that Villanova looks like they could be a huge threat to Duke eventually.
My final four picks are as follows:
Midwest: Ohio State
Ohio State vs. Duke…with the Buckeyes pulling out a cliffhanger on Duke.
