12 March Madness facts to make your bracket suck less

1. You are never ever going to have a perfect bracket.

With the odds of getting a perfect bracket as high as 9.2 quintillion to one, you have better odds at winning Mega Millions twice in a row.

2. A No. 16 seed has never defeated a No. 1 seed.

Nope, never happened. You’re all but safe on these first-round picks.

3. Also don’t bet on No. 15 seeds.

They’ve made it to the second round only seven times.

4. There’s almost always a No. 12 seed upset.

No one wants to to be a No. 5 seed nowadays, probably due to the fact that a No. 12 seed caused six upsets in 2013 and 2014 combined. The four No. 5 seeds haven’t gone 4-0 in seven years.

5. But don’t give 12-seeds that much love.

Of the No. 12 seeds that have been in the Sweet 16, only one has ever made it to the Elite 8.

6. Vote blue.

In the past 11 seasons, Louisville was the only champion that didn’t have blue as a school color.

7. Deuces dominate.

Twenty-five of the last 36 tournaments have seen a No. 2 seed in the Final Four.

8. Don’t cling to the top seeds.

All four No. 1 seeds have made it to the Final Four only once, in 2008.

9. But don’t completely discount all of them.

Since 1985, No. 1 seeds have gone to the Sweet Sixteen roughly 90% of the time.

10. Never bet on the NEC.

No team from the North Eastern Conference has ever won a single game to get past the Round of 64. This year Robert Morris University has a chance. (Against No. 1 seed Duke. Good luck.)

11. The Pac-12 is also shaky.

While it might have the team with the most tournament championships (UCLA with 11), the Pac-12 hasn’t had a team win the tournament in almost 20 years.

12. Don’t bet on Kentucky. Or do.

The best team in the tournament, Kentucky, is 34-0 and treading into uncharted territory. No college basketball team has ever gone 40-0 since the tournament expanded to 64 teams. 

My reaction after the last events in The Amazing Race - All Stars, now that my second favorite team , Jet and Cord, were eliminated. It was really frustrating when the Kentucky team was out due to the girl´s mistake, and when the cowboys gave stupidly the express pass to those useless blondes who are still on the race!!!
I think I won´t watch the remaining episodes, this really sucks.

Art & JJ getting mad at Dave & Rachel is pretty dumb!

Just got through watching The Amazing Race and Art and JJ is getting on my last NERVES!!! They got mad at Dave and Rachel for not u-turning Nary and Jamie because they made an agreement earlier on the race. Art and JJ only hate Nary and Jamie because they are lying about their true professions. But it was impossible for Nary and Jamie to catch up in the condition they were in. They were the last team to arrive and they had a speed bump. They’re chance for winning  was very slim! I’m with Team Kentucky!  I hope they win!

ALS ice bucket challenge- Joshifer Drabble

I just came up with this so sorry if it’s badly written I have to get to school!!!
But either way I hope you enjoy!!!!

…….
Josh’s POV


The red lights appears on her camera and the recording officially begins.

“Hi I’m Josh Hutcherson.” I say at the beginning of the recording and then I turn to my partner in crime.

“And I’m Jennifer Lawrence. And we have both been nominated several times to do the ALS ice bucket challenge so we thought we should both do it together.” Jen says with a smile.

“Okay I’m up first, before Jen pours the freezing water on me, I would like to say I am giving $10,000 to ALS, and I will nominating my brother Connor and the whole basketball Union Kentucky team, good luck guys you have 24 hours. Off you go Jen.” I said as I sat on a seat in front of the camera and waited for my drenching.

“Okay.” Jen said nervously as she slowly lifted the heavy bucket of ice and water over my head.

A splash! The water and ice landed on my head and ran down my body and I froze to near death! “Holy shit!!!!” I said as I got up off the chair.

I ran around the small courtyard to cool down but that wasn’t helping either. My white top was clinging tightly to my body which was making me colder. All I could hear was Jen laughing at me. I decide to take my tshirt off so I wasn’t as cold.

“Joshua!!” Jen says as she looks at my bare chest. “Anyways it’s my turn now!” She says with excitement. “Okay I have also donated $10,000 to ALS, and I nominate my brothers Ben and Blaire, and I also nominate the whole Louisville Cardinals basketball team. Good luck everyone you have 24 hours.” Jen say to the camera.

“You ready for this Jen?” I ask as she sits in the chair in front of the camera.

“No but I have to do it.” She says as she gets ready for the coldness. I begin to laugh.

“Well good luck Lawrence.” I say as I grab the bucket of ice and water.

“Thanks Hutch.” She says quietly. I smile, god she’s going to kill me after this drenching. I lift the bucket so it’s above her head and begin to pour.

“Fuck!!!” Jen screams when the freezing water hits her body. “I mean gosh that’s cold!” She says after I finish pouring the bucket of ice and she realises what she just said.

Jen remains seated and she looks freezing but this is the perfect opportunity to pull a prank. I quietly grab another bucket of ice I had previously prepared and sneak up behind the frozen Jen. And then I begin to pour the second bucket over her head.

There is a lot of screaming. Then once I have finished pouring Jen realises what I had just done. “Joshua Ryan Hutcherson! How dare you!”

“I’m sorry Jen it was just the perfect opportunity.” She punches me in the arm. “Hey Jen we just completed the ice bucket challenge!” I say with a smile.

“We did! We just completed the ice bucket challenge!” Jen and I embrace. Then we turn to the camera. “Good luck to everyone else out there who is doing this awesome challenge for an even awesomer cause! We hope you enjoyed Josh and I doing the ice bucket challenge as much as we enjoyed making it!” Jen says with a smile then I walk over and turn the screen off making sure they still get a good view of my naked chest.

And with that the Joshifer ice bucket challenge was put on YouTube and seen by millions.

This Gay High School Basketball Player Has a Message For the Bigots Who Snubbed Him

Dalton Maldonado has had a challenging year. The 19-year-old was a star player on the Betsy Layne High School basketball team in Betsy Layne, Kentucky, earning a spot on the small team in the 8th grade and advancing to the role of starting point guard as an upperclassman. In December, however, he became the focus of national attention after coming out as gay at a Christmas tournament match. Though he graduated in spring, Maldonado has again found himself at the center of controversy, having been omitted from a two-page spread in his high school yearbook that featured every other member of the Betsy Layne basketball team.

“That was the first page I flipped to once I got my annual,” Maldonado told ATTN:. “I was so excited to see it and that was the only picture that wasn’t in there.”
