A little break from political madness to talk about THE madness.
As is customary, Joe Biden filled out a bracket and posted it online.
Biden picked #2 seed Arizona to take it all, reported Fox News.
Well, they did not even make it out of the first round.
Biden stated, “I’ve got Arizona in the men’s tournament and Villanova in the women’s — and as you know, in this household, Villanova always wins,” reports the New York Post.
Arizona lost to #15 Princeton in the first round, 59-55, proving to be a nice bracket buster to get the action started, but it was not THE bracket buster.
That would come on Friday night when #1 Purdue was beaten in the first round, only the second time in history that a number one seed went down to a #16.
Biden got ribbed pretty badly on his bracket, but not because of his picks. Joe did not send out his bracket until after the tournament had already kicked off because Joe operates on his own schedule and nobody is going to get in the way of that.
BetOnline.Ag even took a shot at Biden, tweeting, “Brackets were due by noon, Mr. President.”
Barstool founder Dave Portney added, “Vintage Biden. Tweets out bracket after tournament started. Auto DQ. See ya next year buddy.”
After taking a quick look at Joe’s bracket, it is pretty clear that he does not follow the tournament or college basketball.
Biden missed out on some of the usual upsets and has nothing lower than the #2 seed in the Final Four.
He also had no Cinderella teams in the Sweet 16, with #4 Virginia being his lowest seed going into next week, but they were also knocked out in the first round.
Right now, Joe’s bracket looks like a bloodbath.
