I’m a little late with the March Madness predictions because of a juicy (terrible word usage) case of the stomach flu. For those of you unfamiliar with wifey’s predictions and how she makes them click here. We’ve already missed some of the games on day 3 so we better hurry up and get to it before we miss anymore.
Georgia State Panthers vs Xavier Musketeers
Wifey chooses: Musketeers
Sal chooses: Musketeers
Wifey’s rationale: She struggled with this one. She wanted to know about each school’s background. For some reason when I told her Xavier is a Jesuit Catholic university she immediately chose them. When poked further she said a Jesuit Catholic musketeer sounds unstoppable.
N.C. State Wolfpack vs Villanova Wildcats
Wifey chooses: Wolfpack
Sal chooses: Wildcats
Wifey’s rationale: The Wolfpack because they sound organized unlike your socks and underwear drawer
Utah Utes vs Georgetown Hoyas
Wifey chooses: Utes
Sal chooses: Utes
Wifey’s rationale: It came down to examining the school’s respective mascots. She felt the Hoya bulldog would be defenceless against the Utah hawk…poor doggy
Arkansas Razorbacks vs North Carolina Tar Heels
Wifey chooses: Tar Heels
Sal chooses: Tar Heels
Wifey’s rationale: “I’m a little biased on this one. I saw that commercial with Jordan in a Tar Heel jersey. If he played there they must be good.”
Butler Bulldogs vs Notre Dame Fighting Irish
Wifey chooses: Irish
Sal chooses: Irish
Wifey’s rationale: “Easiest pick of the day, have to go with my Irish clansmen”
Michigan State Spartans vs Virginia Cavaliers
Wifey chooses: Cavaliers
Sal chooses: Cavaliers
Wifey’s rationale: Hmmm, this is tough. Psychotic dudes with 6-packs or sword wielding soldiers on horseback. Horsies win.
San Diego State Aztecs vs Duke Blue Devils
Wifey chooses: Aztecs
Sal chooses: Aztecs
Wifey’s rationale: We are going to San Diego in a couple weeks. Better pick them for some good karma.
Wichita State Shockers vs Kansas Jayhawks
Wifey chooses: Jayhawks
Sal chooses: Jayhawks
Wifey’s rationale: “I only picked the Jayhawks because I assumed since you’re a sick pervert you’d auto pick the Shockers.” No wifey, you are the pervert. Everyone knows the team name is about harvesting wheat and not harvesting poop and hoo hah juices.
Dayton Flyers vs Oklahoma Sooners
Wifey chooses: Flyers
Sal chooses: Sooners
Wifey’s rationale: I liked their mascot last year and I’m sticking by him this year.
Iowa Hawkeyes vs Gonzaga Bulldogs
Wifey chooses: Bulldogs
Sal chooses: Bulldogs
Wifey’s rationale: I like things that are fat and drooly…what you looking at? You’re not drooly at all honey.
Oregon Ducks vs Wisconsin Badgers
Wifey chooses: Badgers
Sal chooses: Badgers
Wifey’s rationale: I went against Bucky last year and he showed me up.
Northern Iowa Panthers vs Louisville Cardinals
Wifey chooses: Panthers
Sal chooses: Panthers
Wifey’s rationale: A bird versus a large cat? I feel we’ve gone over this before. The bird shouldn’t have a chance.
West Virginia Mountaineers vs Maryland Terrapins
Wifey chooses: Mountaineers
Sal chooses: Terrapins
Wifey’s rationale: Mountainmen versus a turtle? C’mob now. Unless these are ninja turtles…are they ninja turtles? No? Well why did you hint that they might be? You sassing me boy?
