Final Four Picks

My head says: VCU over Butler & UConn over Kentucky.


I have Kentucky in my wife’s lottery-style office pool.

Also, my 13-year-old son filled out his first NCAA bracket this year. Early on–and incomprehensibly–he picked Butler to reach the championship game. When he did, I gave him a funny look. But he’s going to have the last laugh. In our 33-member Yahoo tournament group, he’s currently in third place. His dear old dad is in the middle of the pack. If I did the math right, he’ll win the whole thing if Butler beats UConn on Monday night.
