Sweet 16 Picks: The Results

Bear Grylls ain't got nothing on me: I put my March Madness picks up against Quigley, a 10-pound cat who sleeps all day and occasionally drinks water straight out of the faucet. I used human intellegence, analysis of teams, players and coaches, and general knowledge of college basketball developed over years of fandom. He used a patented animal kingdom-based method. I started at a small disadvantage, as I picked the Sweet 16 before the tourney began; Quigley picked the actual matchups after the first weekend of games.

So who won out?

So there you have it....I edged a housecat, 4-3. Phew. (And if any HTML-savvy readers know how to get rid of that space before the table starts, I'm all ears. Thanks.)
