MARCH MAYHEM LEADER: MAX WOWCH

A quick chat with our current bracket leader



Two rounds of NCAA tournament play are in the books, which means the same for our annual March Mayhem contest where $1,000 worth of product on this here website is awarded to the person with the winning bracket. At this point in the contest, one man sits alone atop the leaderboard. (Actually, we think he's tied with someone else, but since his name is listed first we're just going to go with it.) That man is Max Wowch. We emailed over some questions to Max to see how he's dealing with the immense pressure and newfound fame. He shouted back some answers, all of which are spoken with the same level of confidence shown when filling out his leading bracket.

S&H: This must be stressful. Can you tell us how you're coping with such a burden?

Max Wowch: HOW DO U EXPECT ME TO GIVE HONEST, HEARTFELT ANSWERS BY OPENING WITH SARCASM ON QUESTION ONE?

S&H: What was your strategy in making your picks?

MW: I SET ASIDE A COUPLE HOURS ON THURSDAY MORNING TO CONSULT SOME INTERNET EXPERTS, CHECK THE VEGAS LINES, AND TO TAKE A LONG, HARSH LOOK IN THE MIRROR BEFORE SELECTING DUKE TO MAKE IT THRU TO THE SWEET 16.

S&H: Do you think you can keep this up and end up winning it all?

MW: I'M NOT SURE HOW WEIGHTED THE SCORING IS FOR EACH ROUND, BUT IT'S PROBABLY RIDICULOUS, SO I'M GOING TO SAY NO, I DOUBT I WILL WIN IT ALL.

S&H: What are you planning to spend your $1,000 on in our ecomm store?

MW: SOMETHING SEERSUCKER I HOPE. AM I ALLOWED TO SELL IT ON CRAIGSLIST?

S&H: Do you have any advice for future entrants looking to be in the lead after two rounds of play?

MW: THAT QUESTION IS GIVING ME A HEADACHE.

S&H: How will you deal with the disappointment if you do not end up winning?

MW: DISAPPOINTMENT IS AN ARTIST'S CANVAS.
