Banshee Bracket Bonanza: We Have a Winner

The NCAA Men's Championship tips off in about 3 hours.  Around midnight, we will know whether the Wildcats or the Jayhawks will be cutting down the nets in New Orleans.  But, we don't need to wait all night to declare a winner in the Banshee Bracket Bonanza.

After lurking in the weeds for most of the tournament, Christopher David Carlberg jumped to the top of the standings on Saturday night and claimed his rightful place as the Seer of Seers and Prognosticator of Prognosticators for 2012.  Our winner was all business from the start of the competition.  Instead of choosing a flashy name for his entry, he went with a straight forward approach, choosing simply "Carlberg" for his team name.  Chris correctly picked three of the Final Four teams.  And while 18 of our 22 competitors picked Kentucky to play in the final game, only Chris Carlberg correctly predicted that Kentucky would be playing Kansas tonight.

In case anyone thinks Carlberg's performance was a fluke, keep this in mind.  After six races, Carlberg is in the 91st percentile nationwide in ESPN's fantasy NASCAR competition.  If anyone wants Carlberg's expertise for their upcoming fantasy sports endeavors, rumor has it that he will provide a full prospectus for the modest fee of $50.  And, if anyone needs to borrow a cd with "Pump Up the Volume" by M/A/R/R/S, Chris has one of those available, too.  The coveted prize package of Jock Rock 1, Jock Rock 2 and Jock Jams is on the way to the Carlberg household.
