While March hasn’t yet been officially diagnosed with any mental disorders, the NCAA basketball conference tournaments figure heavily in this weeks countdown. The Big 12, Big East, and SEC all put in appearances as last minute shoppers jockey for seats to the championship games. Those opportunities are quickly evaporating, as Saturday brings the conference games to close and Sunday is the NCAA Tournament selection show. So, gentlemen, start your brackets… specifically the one to your left…
Taylor Swift did remain atop the countdown, and John Mayer surged a bit to #2. The esteemed Mr. Bieber put in his poorest performance in recent memory, dropping to the bottom five to join the WWE and a couple of countdown newcomers. The more notable of the two new entries to the countdown is, of course, Conan O’Brien, whose recently announced comedy tour is a very sudden, very big hit before the first show has even gone on the books.
The other countdown newcomer is the country music group Lady Antebellum, whom Wikipedia informs me is made up of 3 people, 2 of whom aren’t ladies at all. I have to say I find that a little disappointing. In any case, they’re playing both the Houston and Austin Rodeos in almost back to back performances, which is no doubt helping to fuel the interest on our site.
