The 12 Best Alternative March Madness Brackets

It’s not my fault that I just can’t get into March Madness. For starters, I went to the University of California at Santa Cruz, and the only recreational activities anyone took seriously were hackysack, bongo jam sessions, and pot smoking.

All that being said, I like the concept of March Madness brackets — pitting things against each other, until there’s ultimately one winner. That’s why I love the array of non-basketball-related March Madness brackets, covering everything from “Saved By the Bell” and beer to The Muppets and cats.

Like, what’s the point of having a gay bestie who doesn’t want to drinking flirtinis, dance to Lady Gaga, or get mani/pedis? What’s the point of being a gay man — or having a gay bestie — if you’re not going to be a walking stereotype? (No, seriously, I am actually just disappointed I don’t have a disappointing gay best friend like the handsome Tyler Coates, above, whose Twitter/Tumblr I follow obsessively.)

Earlier this week, a bitchtastic UCLA undergrad named Alexandra Wallace took to YouTube to complain about her Asian classmates. Because clearly the most sensitive time to do that is days after Japan has been destroyed by an earthquake and tsunami! But still, Alexandra griped about “hordes of Asians” UCLA lets in every year who don’t have “American manners” in the library.

Surprise, surprise, Alexandra Wallace is now leaving UCLA. Keep reading »
