Obama Picks the Winner
Although many have criticized President Barack Obama for taking time away from fixing the economy to fill out his NCAA bracket, Obama has picked the winner. Tonight, the North Carolina Tar Heels (NC) beat the Michigan State Spartans (MS) to become the 2009 NCAA National Champions.
final score: NC (89) – MS (72).
Even though some would say that it wasn’t that big of a stretch to pick NC before the start of the tournament, let us remember that Louisville was the favorite, and the team that most people had chosen.
MS made a valiant effort, but in the end, they were no match for Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, and NC’s strong presence inside.
Obama is now 1 – 0 as president in choosing the NCAA champion. He should have at least 3 more chances as president to defend his record. Now let’s see if he can keep the streak going.
