image for Everyone Flunks ESPN's Bracketology 101 As All #1 Seeds Make Final Four
How did you do in the office pool?

It should happen on a regular basis. You'd have bet money that it had happened within the past five years. You'd have bet your car that it had happened more than once. Your house might even be on the line to bet that it happened at least once. You'd have lost.

This year is the first time ever in the NCAA Basketball Tournament that all four number one seeds have advanced to the Final Four. Three different times this has been done by three number one seeds, but never by all four.

ESPN's Bracketology competition is already over as only one person in the entire country picked all four to get there. Forget about the office pool and quit checking your brackets to see how you did, because you didn't.

That person to correctly pick all four number ones to advance was Mildred Finklestein of Gary, Indiana. When asked what strategy, insight, or information she used to pick these teams and see no darkhorses or mid-majors or streaking teams make the leap to greatness and glory, Mrs Finkelstein was very succinct in her answer. "I picked all the teams with the lower numbers to win. I really thought I didn't have a chance when that Davidson team beat Gonzaga and Georgia and Wisconson, but Kansas ended up proving me right in the end."

When asked who she picked to win it all, she refused to reveal her choices as "I don't want this to change the point spread cuz I need the money for a new hearing aid and my husband's prostate surgery."
