A Dog’s Guide to March Madness

Last year Warren Buffet offered one BILLION dollars to anyone who could pick a perfect NCAA March Madness bracket. No one won it, but out of all the brackets submitted across the country, mine was 150th best. Not too shabby considering I let MY DOG make the picks. Don’t believe
Last year Warren Buffet offered one BILLION dollars to anyone who could pick a perfect NCAA March Madness bracket. No one won it, but out of all the brackets submitted across the country, mine was 150th best. Not too shabby considering I let MY DOG make the picks. Don’t believe me? Here’s the video evidence. 19.1

Eko’s picks were a slam dunk

This year I have twice the dog-computing-power so there was pretty much no question I’d win the billion. Except there’s no contest this year. Coincidence? I think not. Buffet was clearly shaking in his boots at the prospect of facing off with college basketball’s best prognosticators.

19.2

Penny thought it was hilarious Buffett backed down

We won’t be sitting on piles of cash anytime soon but nevertheless it’s time to make our picks based solely on which mascots we like.

19.3

The Colonials of Robert Morris are patriots, but we don’t think they stand a chance

19.4

Same goes for the Hampton Pirates and all other teams with human mascots

But that doesn’t eliminate too many teams as most choose one animal or another to represent their side.

19.5

If you like cats, this is your year. It seems nearly half the field, including the favorite, Kentucky, are named the Wildcats

19.6

But never fear dog lovers, you’re well represented by Huskies, Bulldogs, Terriers and Great Danes. (“Will, why are you making me wear a dog costume, I’m a dog…”)

19.7

Our dark horse favorite to make a deep run is a pup of the untamed sort. Don’t sleep on the NC State Wolfpack 

But, dogs are loyal creatures, so these pups are doubling down on their old man’s alma mater. Ladies and gentleman, I give you the 2015 national champs….

19.8

The University of Notre Dame! Taz, while not exactly our official mascot, will count for our animal purposes here

Sound crazy? That’s what they said last year too!

Comments for A Dog’s Guide to March Madness

  1. I cross my paws for your team… it’s Notre Dame and I’m french :o)

  2. KarenS says:

    Best of luck with the picks. I don’t think my guys are that much into basketball, give them a track meet & watch them fly:)

  3. Hilarious and I must show my husband! I am not a fan of the brackets (but…my husband has the afternoon game on as we speak), and he is participating in a few brackets! Good luck!

    oh my gosh Penny “laughing” is hilarious! I laughed till I cried. Eko looked very unimpressed with his dog costume so definitely don’t support them although I have to say they look doubtful on University of Notre Dame too so good luck!

    Irish fantasyland was over 2 days ago. ND will be crying in their green beer.

  6. We’re not into March Madness here, but we’ll back your pick! We have three different alma maters in this house, and none are ever in anything important, so there’s no infighting here. 🙂

  7. Emmadog says:

    Good luck to your team!

  8. Pawsome choices! Now how are you guys with the ponies? 😉

  9. Oh, my Popsy loves to watch Notre Dame he has been a fan for lots of years. I will let him know you two are rooting for them. Those animal hats look real cool on you sweet Eko. All those pics are great. Hugs and nose kisses, Chancy

  10. lol this had me smiling and giggling all the way to the end. Great photos!

  11. OMG! You guys (and Penny) are really into it! I’m voting for whatever team has Terriers as their mascot. I hope they fetch the prize. …See what I did there?

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  12. Alright…..just when I think I’ve giggled more than ever before from the photos, I’m beating my previous record. These photos are hilarious. The cat hat did me in. HAHAHAHA I’m afraid we aren’t B-ball watchers in this house but I hope your team pulls things through!!!
