President Obama Unveils 2013 March Madness Bracket

Published On March 22, 2013 | By Tyler Scionti

Who’s to say that the leader of the free world can’t take a moment to have a little fun? President Barack Obama has recently unveiled his March Madness bracket for the fifth consecutive year as he joins the many NCAA fans across the country taking a guess at who will come out on top.

While President Obama may have a serious job as Commander in Chief of the United States, he knows how to relax when he needs to and for him that means basketball. He’s a serious hoops fan and not a bad player either, so chances are that his bracket will be a pretty good one given his knowledge of the game.

Over the past five years Obama has been known for riding the No. 1 seed team deep into the tournament, this year though he has mixed things up a bit for a change. In his Final Four Obama has No. 1 seed Louisville, along with No. 1 seed in the East, Indiana, No. 2 out of the West, Ohio State and Florida, the No. 3 seed out of the South. Obama has been playing it safe this year, choosing the top teams rather than gamble on any underdogs. Some claim that his bracket is a tad too predictable but given the nature filling a bracket out perhaps the safe route is the best.

While President Obama certainly has a vast array of knowledge when it comes to basketball, like any fan he is at the mercy of upsets and underdogs like any fan following sports. Last year Obama chose North Carolina to win it all, but they bowed out in the Elite Eight. That said the Pres. can get it done when it comes to predicting how things will pan out, so keep an eye on his bracket and feel free to join in the fun by making your own.
