I have a place in my heart for Connecticut. I lived there for almost 5 years.
CT!! Yay to be proud of my state for once!!!
As for my NCAA tournament pick, Sometimes you just got to go with your gut.
Other times you just need to take big risks. With big risks come a big reward.
Before the NCAA tournament began, not a lot of people (especially those living in the midwest) would have picked UConn, unless of course you yourself were from CT and had a bit of a bias towards them winning.
When I showed my friends my completed bracket weeks ago, I got laughs or smart ass remarks from all of them.
If I would have picked Kansas or Ohio like everyone else and their brother did, I wouldn't have brought home an $800 TV.
