There were 19 official entrants in the LMNOP Invitational this year, all vying for a spot in the LMNOP Hall of Fame. Actually, technically Cathy and I are just playing for pride, and one entrant forgot to make any picks, so I guess really 16 people are vying for the Hall of Fame spot. Either way, this year's competition should be as fierce as Tyra Banks riding a lion--especially if Georgetown wins it all. One in three participants in this year's LMNOP Invitational picked them to win it all. Where'd that come from? Cathy Addison-Weemer, who likes to trashtalk, has suggested that you all are jumping onto her bandwagon. She wants me to remind you that she was a Hoya fan before the rest of you were born. So take that.
Here's a graph of the other teams you picked to win it all:
And oh my God, I just realized I mixed up the little pictures UCLA and UVA. Dammit. Ignore that.
In case you're wondering who picked each team:
Georgetown: Reasonable Doubt, Dr. Jerome Matthews, My School Was Good at Football, Cathy's Champs (Cathy Addison-Weemer), Kelly's Best Picks Ever, and TORIbasketBALL
Florida: Lauren's LMNOPicks, Hot Sauce, Whatever I Can Get, Wolly Does Not Know Weingarten (you'll have to explain that reference to me)
North Carolina: I Take Showers and Know Mr. W (also will have to explain the reference to me), JJ's Picks
Wisconsin: Rory Porkham, EmGusk's Fantastic Bracket
Ohio St.: Sipester
UCLA: The Ashinator
Kansas: King of Queens
Virginia: Justin's House of China (Unfortunately I get that reference, lame-o)
Since we have twice as many people participating in this year's Invitational, I have resolved to make my coverage at least twice as good. Last year there weren't many updates because, well, remember last March? The special events thing? I was drowning in posts. This year I shall do better.
