Flip2▶ Game★WORTH ▶ Buffett the score 34/48 ▶ 70% correct

Flip2▶ Game★WORTH by altacities® ▶ 

Flip2▶Making it to the Sweet Sixteen in the 2014 #MarchMadness NCAAMB tournament was anything but sweet for my bracket.  Score so far is only 70% correct with 34 of 48 picks correct to this point. So much for the theory of following the BPI, RPI, Sagarin and other statistical rankings.  Upsets abound in this year's NCAAMB!  Still, we turned out luckier than this guy ...

Flip2▶ Game★WORTH by altacities® ▶ 
Flip2▶After the grueling round of 64, the 2014 #MarchMadness NCAAMB tournament finally arrives to the round of 32.  75% of my bracket survives, including all four of my top seed: Arizona, Florida, Virginia, and Wichita State

Flip2▶ Game★WORTH by altacities® ▶ CLICK TO ENLARGE then...
Flip2▶For a bracket novice like me (first time ever to pick any bracket in a #MarchMadness contest), I guess this first round score of 12/16 is not a bad showing, even if (like millions of others), I am out of the running for the #BillionBracket by Warren Buffett's and Quicken Loans. 

▶Like the masses of #Madness prognosticators, I thoroughly missed the Day One upsets: #11 Dayton over #6 Ohio State (the in-state rivalry should have been a tip), #12 Harvard over #5 Cincinnati (Ivy League basketball?), #12 North Dakota State over #5 Oklahoma (the oil pipeline will now never cross the Sooner state?), and #7 Texas over #10 Arizona State (forgive me for supporting the Pac12).  Historically, I overlooked the fact that #11 seeds are 38-74 against #6 seeds in the NCAAs.  Also, #12 seeds have the same 38-74 record against #5 seeds. On the flip side, #7 seeds are 67-45 against #10 seeds.

▶Lesson for next year:  Study more on those #10 thru #12 seeds.  They may be underrated.

Flip2▶Are you among the 15 million (max) contestants entering the Warren Buffett, Quicken Loans Billion$Bracket for #MarchMadness?  If you so, like me, you may have gone through some real madness trying to get registered in the Y!Sports Fantasy League system.  Be prepared for an ordeal, that is, unless you already have a prior account.  Go to : to start the ride.

Meanwhile, just now posted on the QL #Facebook page ▶
Reading this #Facebook comment stream and the #Y!Sports #QuickenLoans #MarchMadness#Billion@Bracket contest, reminds me of the quip: "Never let a good deed go unpunished!" Yes, I and possibly many others went through a 2-day trial to get registered at the Y!S location, but persistence eventually paid off. Remember folks, the odds are long to win here, but that's part of the challenge and the fun of the game. No one thinks twice about buying lotto tickets with similar or longer odds. Play the game and enjoy! Life is to short to grouse about pursuits where you are supposed to be having fun. I may be back later with other thoughts, but, meanwhile, you may like to follow my bracket creation research at: ▶ Flip2▶ Game★WORTH ▶P.S.
