March Madness is upon us and that means anyone and everyone is filling out tourney brackets.
A couple years ago I posted weekly NFL picks and for fun I’d add in the wife’s picks.
My wife has zero interest in sports. Her picks are based on the teams names and what would happen if the actual animals/people/objects actually met in a field of battle.
See here for samples of her previous picks.
Here are her Day 1 picks…fine I’ll put my picks in too…but I’m scurred she’ll beat me.
Dayton Flyers vs. Ohio State Buckeyes
Wifey chooses: Flyers
Sal chooses: Buckeyes
Wifey’s rationale: She looked at the mascots and without hesitation she said the Flyer mascot would beat the crap out of the Buckeye mascot. Stronger jawline she says.
American University Eagles vs. Wisconsin Badgers
Wifey chooses: Eagles
Sal Chooses Badgers
Wifey’s rationale: In an eagle vs. badger matchup she thinks the aerial attack advantage gives the eagles the edge in this one. The land based furballs don’t stand a chance against those talons.
Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Colorado Buffaloes
Wifey chooses: Buffaloes
Sal chooses: Panthers
Wifey’s rationale: She likes the size of buffaloes and thinks a healthy herd of buffaloes would strike fear into a group of panthers causing them to scatter
Harvard Crimson vs. Cincinnati Bearcats
Wifey chooses: Crimson
Sal chooses: Bearcats
Wifey’s rationale: She said the first thing that came to mind when she heard crimson is a crimson tide. Cats don’t usually like water and thus the crimson would wash dem cats straight outta the joint
Western Michigan Broncos vs. Syracuse Orange
Wifey chooses: Broncos
Sal chooses: Orange
Wifey’s rationale: What kind of team name is orange? Is it just a colour? The fruit? How can a colour battle a horse? This one’s easy
BYU Cougars vs Oregon Ducks
Wifey chooses: Cougars
Sal chooses: Ducks
Wifey’s rationale: Ducks have no chance against whatever cougar you choose, be it the 40 year old female kind or the hungry wild cat
Albany Great Danes vs Florida Gators
Wifey chooses: Gators
Sal chooses: Gators
Wifey’s rationale: no contest
Delaware Fightin’ Blue Hens vs Michigan Spartans
Wifey chooses: Spartans
Sal chooses: Spartans
Wifey rationale: Chickens? C’mon now seriously, who would pick chickens?
Saint Joseph’s Hawks vs Connecticut Huskies
Wifey chooses: Huskies
Sal chooses: Hawks
Wifey Rationale: This is a tough one. Hawks would get a lot of good shots in from the air, but in the end they’re just not big enough to take down a group of big huskies
Wofford Terriers vs Michigan Wolverines
Wifey chooses: Wolverines
Sal chooses: Wolverines
Wifey rationale: No way a little dog has a shot against a wolverine…no chance
North Carolina State Wolfpack vs. Saint Louis Billikens
Wifey chooses: Billikens
Sal chooses: Billikens
Wifey rationale: I showed her a picture of a Billiken and she shuddered and said those things will scare anything
North Dakota State Bison vs. Oklahama Sooners
Wifey chooses: Sooners
Sal chooses: Sooners
Wifey Rationale: Bisons have no shot against a group of crazy settlers
Milwaukee Panthers vs. Villanova Wildcats
Wifey chooses: Wildcats
Sal chooses: Wildcats
Wifey rationale: This is another virtual toss up. The wild in Wildcats was the deciding factor
Arizona State Sun Devils vs. Texas Longhorns
Wifey chooses: Sun Devils
Sal chooses: Longhorns
Wifey rationale: A team of devils seems unstoppable doesn’t it?
Manhattan Jaspers vs. Louisville Cardinals
Wifey chooses: Cardinals
Sal chooses: Cardinals
Wifey rationale: The wife says her google search of a Jasper turned up either a cow or a sheep. Either option she says doesn’t scream winner
New Mexico State Aggies vs. San Diego State Aztecs
Wifey chooses: Aztecs
Sal chooses: Aztecs
Wifey rationale: The Aztecs are violent aren’t they? WTF is an Aggie?
There you have it…please don’t laugh if the wife beats me.
