|Our family bracket challenge before the final game tonight.|
There once was a girl named Cat.
Her family thought sports were phat.
All day and all night,
Twas truly her plight,
She watched baskteball in March that was that.
There once was a boy named John.
He watched basketball all month on and on.
He cheered for his team,
Until they lost their steam,
Their chances of winning were gone.
There once was a man named Jeff Mere.
He loved basketball all through the year.
But in March it was true,
There was only one thing to do,
Watch March Madness and for his team cheer.
There once was a man named Chuckie.
He was sure the Big 10 was going to be lucky.
So he watched and he prayed,
Until the final two were made,
Let maize and blue beat the team from Kentucky.
There once was a girl named Cort.
One day her bracket fell short.
But she bragged anyway ,
Til her mom had to say,
"Your dad's winning, I must report."
