The Lyrics

I know a lot of things about a lot of things, but my college basketball predictions are usually busted by the Sweet Sixteen. If even one of my teams predicted to reach the Final Four actually does so, that's a good sign. So for the 2007 Tournament, don't bet on Wisconsin, Ohio State, UCLA, or my pick to win it all, North Carolina. You'll be better off. The following is not specific to any year's tournament, but I put some "Cinderellas" in the bridge, and, fortunately, there are some usual suspects.
(instrumental opening)

Every time I look at sixty-five hard lines
I see no chance that money will be mine.
One look... at U...
of C... LA
I pray... that they'll
beat Duke... today!

Find the team I want.
My brackets!
Find the favored seed.
My brackets!
Who will win it all?
My brackets!
N... C...?

Every time I pick Kansas, they lose again.
Indiana loses, shows I'm not the man.
I pick (I pick)
UConn (UConn)
to win (to win)
the East (the East)
or to (or to)
make Sweet (make Sweet)
16 (16)
at least!

Find the team I want.
My brackets!
Find the favored seed.
My brackets!
Who will win it all?
My brackets!
Kentu...cky?

Find the team I want.
(My brackets!)
Find the favored seed.
(My brackets!)
Who will win it all?

(Val-pa-rai-so U.!)
Oh!
(Or George Mason U!)
Oh! Yeah!
Or Gonzaga in
my brackets!

I'm glad (I'm glad)
to give (to give)
my picks (my picks)
to you! (to you!)
No one (No one)
should pick (should pick)
the teams (the teams)
I do-woo-woo-woo-woo-woo
woo!

Find the team I want.
My brackets!
Find the favored seed.
My brackets!
Who will win it all?
My brackets!
Ba... by?

Find the team I want.
My brackets!
Find the favored seed.
My brackets!
Who will win it all?
My brackets!
Ba... by?

Tell me, Dick Vitale!
(It's awesome! Ba... by!)

My brackets!

Few things give me the joy that I get from March Madness. I've completed my brackets...they're submitted...and once I win the big bucks, maybe I'll head out east so we can celebrate together. =)

Thursday and Friday of this week are the two least productive days of the year in American businesses as cubicle dwellers switch among ESPN.com, (AmiRight.com), and actual work. Unfortunately, my picks usually do as well as yours, MP. Go, Trojans!

Hi Mike! I think this parody is fabulous, but for the record, TOS was from the 80s not the 60s. This was Roy's last hit right before he passed away. You get a 5/5/5. Let's see, who do I select to win? (Sorry there, I was on a roll.)

I actually picked two of the Final Four teams, Ohio State and UCLA. But the team that won it all, Florida, wasn't one of my picks. Kudos to Sanjaya, I mean Joachim Noah, Billy Donovan and the Gators. Mr. Pants: You're right, and I knew that, but I think I just put "60s" up there out of habit. Then again, my habits also include picking North Carolina and Kansas, and you can see what kind of good THAT does me!
