Christine Brennan is not pleased that President Obama (like most Americans, it’s worth noting) only filled out a bracket for the men’s NCAA basketball tourney. Brennan thinks it was a slap in the face to women’s basketball.
Overreact much? The truth is Brennan can be offended all day long and it won’t change the fact that the men’s tourney is a pop culture phenomenon that the women’s tourney simply isn’t–just look at the ratings. That’s not President Obama’s fault.
Personally, I’m more excited about next week’s Frozen Four NCAA Hockey Championship and I doubt President Obama filled out a bracket for that tournament, either. Unlike Brennan, I won’t hold that against him.
