2010 March Madness… It’s awesome baby!

March Madness has finally arrived – 64 of the “best” division I Men & Women’s teams compete for the chance to call themselves 2010 NCAA Basketball Champs.

We love March Madness here in the States; it represents all that is great about college basketball.  We have these young adults playing their hearts out, trying to out duel themselves with every dribble, pass, shot & dunk.

It makes for awesome TV.  Plus, we get to compete in all different types of pools and see if we can be the one to pick all the outcomes correctly.  Another bonus is we get to gather around with friends and fans and root on teams for two weeks while enjoying a nice frosty brew or our favorite beverage!

Some interesting facts compiled by Pregame.com president RJ Bell:

  • The NCAA estimates that nearly 31 million Americans participate in their office pools.
  • What are the odds of picking a perfect bracket?  9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 1.  What does that number mean? It means you have nine quintillion to one chances of picking all 32 outcomes correctly… Umm, good luck!!!
  • #16 seeds are 0 for 88 vs. # 1 seeds.  So if you feel the urge to pick the ultimate upset, please don’t.  Odds are definitely not in your favor and that will totally kill your chances of winning your pool.
  • Superstars make a difference in the NCAA tournament.  If a team has at least one all American, chances are they he/she can lead their team to the promised land.  Out of the last 28 champions, 27 had at least one All-American.

So here at the Sports Bra Reports, in the 2010 NCAA Men’s tournament we have #1 Syracuse from the West Region winning it all.  Take a peek at our selections.

Our picks!

So what do you think ladies and gents, do we have a shot of beating the one in quintillion odds? Who do you have winning it all?

Whether you win your office pool or not, enjoy the ride that is March Madness – great basketball teams competing for a chance at NCAA basketball immortality!

Check back tomorrow for our NCAA Women’s picks!
