No March Madness games? No problem! Check out these fun alternate brackets.
With everything basically canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, sports fans, and many others, may find themselves looking for things to do or watch. And this includes those March Madness brackets. It seems, though, that people are getting creative with brackets to keep themselves busy. And while, these fun brackets may be nothing new to some, for others, it’s definitely a great competitive escape to pass the time.
Here are just a few of the March Madness brackets out there.
These guys started a Billy Joel song bracket.
Premise is simple, fill out your bracket and then vote for your picks on @joe_manniello's Twitter page. Fans can join in playful banter about why they picked certain songs.
The New Kids on the Block are getting in on the fun. Earlier this week, they launched their own #NKOTBMarchMadness bracket – pitting fans against each other on Twitter as they argue over which songs deserve to win.
An added bonus – the New Kids are retweeting fans and commenting on their brackets and picks!

For those who are unfamiliar with March Madness brackets, here’s a quick explanation.

-If making your own – fill out the 64 slots on the right and left side.
-Now the fun part, pick your favorite of the pairs until you get to the final pick. Choose your selections wisely – as you don’t want to get knocked out in a specific bracket!
