And the Winners of “No Bracket, No Pay” Are…

The University of Kentucky Wildcats basketball team and the Big Blue Nation weren’t the only winners last night

The First Annual No Labels/Recovering Politician NCAA bracket contest — “No Bracket No Pay” — is now crowning two champions.

The overcall winner — of the original 68-team bracket contest — was “Nate.”  “Nate” please identify yourself to claim your prize.  In second place was Butler University student Scooter Stein, whose mom happens to be Kathy Stein, the beloved State Senator from Lexington, Kentucky.  The RP came from way back in the field of 77 to finish a respectable 7th.

Here's our goofball winner of the Second Chance tourney with his prize, an original bottle of "Duff" beer, available only in Italy, Argentina, and Springfield, the fictional home of Homer J. Simpson

And in the “second chance” bracket — featuring picks for the Sweet Sixteen forward, the winner was…The RP himself!  By picking the winners of every single game in the Sweet 16 except for Louisville’s surprise wins, and then accurately predicting the 8 point margin of victory in the finals (the tiebreaker), the RP edged out Friend of RP John Johnson for the title.  How fitting that the guy who started this site dedicated to second acts wins the second chance tourney.

Or is it part of the greater international Zionist conspiracy?  You decide!

Congrats to all, and don’t forget to go to, and make your voice heard about “No Budget, No Pay”
