March Madness has come and gone, which means it’s time to crown this year’s winner of the B-Side Blog Tournament of Cham.

It was an exciting, unpredictable year. I thought that for the first time in ages I’d have a real shot at winning it all, given that I had happily lingered in the top 5 for the first half of the NCAA tournament. Then things went crazy, my Final Four got knocked out, and my March Madness season came to an unceremonious and early end. Alas.

In the end, I wound up in lowly 13th place, which isn’t so bad considering we had an impressive forty members (two of which never filled out their brackets — tsk tsk). As for the winner, it was none other than Lizardqueen (by a LONG shot). So, congrats LQ! Enjoy the bragging rights for the next year!!

  1. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat???????? Is this thing on? Firstly, I’d like to thank the sweet baby Jesus swaddled in a golden diaper. This is really HIS win. I’d like to thank all of the Academy voters for choosing me, for understanding how truly hard I worked on this. I was in the dance studio 14 hours a day in preparation for this, I lost 75 pounds, I gave up sex; thank you for recognizing my dedication. Blood, sweat, and tears people!

    If you look at my bracket I actually did pretty poorly, the rest of you just sucked more. Every year I get that “Big East Rules, everyone else drools” idea stuck in my head. But honestly, UCONN was the little engine that could this year. I really thought they could do it.

    And can we talk about Kemba Walker? Ay dios mio! Love that kid. He’s also a great guy, not just a basketball player. Here is an article from last Sunday’s paper http://www.courant.com/sports/uconn-men/hc-kemba-walker-0402-20110401,0,7098455.story He’s graduating next month!!! After 3 years in college! Do male athletes even do that? I mean besides Emeka Okafor.

  2. Congrats to you Lizardqueen! I am happy with getting 8th since after my Georgetown Hoyas yet again crapped out in the first round, I thought I’d be on the bottom with those who didn’t fill their brackets out. I guess the extreme madness of the entire tournament worked in my favor this time, a bit.

  3. Congrats LQ – didn’t know if your FB ban for April included your ‘other’ websites.
    Must also mention that UConn is the 1st school to get Football Season Title, Men’s B-Ball, and Women to the Final 4.
    Go Big East!
