I will not be winning the HMA NCAA basketball tournament bracket pool. In fact, I will likely finish in last place.
So – since it’s obvious I cannot pick teams based on their records, seeds and whatever other factors should be considered, I have uncovered a new way to determine which teams will win.
It’s a new website that predicts winners solely by which mascot would prevail in a fight.
MascotFights.com has even established rules for its matchups:
• All fights are to the death.
• All mascots fight at same physical size: one- foot tall.
• All fights occur in a 25-foot high, 25-by-25-foot brightly lit enclosure.
• Mascots are allowed to fight with the weaponry that is included in their “official” mascot description.
• Magic is not permitted.
• Refs may issue forfeits if one fighter refuses to engage their opponent.
So, who will win between Gonzaga and Syracuse? Here’s a sample of the clever portrayal of the imaginary mascot match-ups:
A classic matchup! A mean Bulldog faces off against a menacing giant toothed Orange with human-like arms and legs.
Fight recap: Orange challenges Bulldog to charge. The dog obliges, and rushes at the Orange. It leaps over the dog and quickly bites the dog on the hind leg, breaking it. The Orange bites again, tearing a huge chunk of flesh from the dogs' back. Another chomp to the head, and the fight is over.
I predict this fun website to become a winner, too!
