At first glance, number one seed DISINFLATION plays a style very similar to Final Four contender DEFLATION, so many simply assumed that's who would be coming out of the Cleveland regional. But it's never that easy. In fact, DISINFLATION is also similar to another Final Four contender, INFLATION. The problem is, few anticipated how problematic the aggressive run-and-gun style of ADUSTABLE-RATE MORTGAGES would be to defend. After blindsiding ALAN GREENSPAN in the first round, ADUSTABLE-RATE MORTGAGES upset a sleeping DISINFLATION and avanced rather easily to a regional final matchup against FORECLOSURES. A breakdown in the ADUSTABLE-RATE MORTGAGES allowed FORECLOSURES to hammer away from inside the (exterior house) paint and become the Cinderella story of the Final Four.
Tomorrow we'll break down the Final Four and reveal our ultimate champion, as well as the lucky winner of two free tickets to the Men's NCAA Championship game in San Anotonio, TX. If you haven't already entered, there's still time. Entries for the random drawing close at 4:00 p.m EST this Friday, March 28.
