A good friend texted me the other day regarding our College Basketball brackets. Because he is an educated man, or just wildly lucky, he maintains three out of the four teams in the Final Four. Quite impressive. He also questioned my Final Four, and even though my bracket was busted, I am using unorthodox analytics to complete my bracket, just for fun.
My Final Four picks are mostly based on food I had eaten in some of their Regions. I would root for South Carolina because of the She Crab Soup, but they are playing Gonzaga, home of the best Stromboli I’ve ever eaten. Not a fan of Oregon, I’ve ordered duck several times, and the best was served in Washington. North Carolina provided the most delicious Fried Green Tomatoes I’ve ever discovered, outside of Louisville.
