UConn Apologizes to President Obama on Twitter for Busting His Bracket
President Barack Obama‘s March Madness bracket has been subject to a lot of attention and media scrutiny recently. And it looks like whoever runs the University of Connecticut Huskies’ Twitter account took notice, since they tweeted an apology to Obama after pulling off an upset victory over Michigan State, the team the President picked to win it all:
Sorry about busting your bracket @BarackObama… We have room on our bandwagon if you're interested
— UConn Huskies (@UConnHuskies) March 30, 2014
The tongue-in-cheek apology is almost certainly a cold comfort to Obama, as his bracket has been pretty well brutalized by the string of upsets that have characterized the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Of the four teams in the president’s Final Four, only one actually made it—the Florida Gators. And that very same Florida Gators team, as it turns out, will be facing off against the UConn Huskies next Saturday.
Whether or not President Obama will take the Huskies up on that invitation into their roomy bandwagon is still up in the air. Although, given Obama’s somewhat middle-of-the-road approach to governing, I wouldn’t expect him to come out too strongly against Florida.
