"Out There...Somewhere": The Real Bracket Busters

Posted: Updated:

Antonio Parker knows about filling out the forms to follow the Ncaa basketball tournament.

"From the beginning to the end, to see who if your team can actually make it the championship. I think its good thing to do," said Parker.

The teams play basketball and millions of fans follow their brackets of predicting the winners.

"Because it's fun and I hope to win some money," said a person at West Augusta Shopping Center.

But, the brackets don't have to be just for those who have a rooting interest in whether it's going to be Kansas or Indiana. We can do our own brackets right here in Augusta. Augusta's final four pet peeves.

Here's the lineup.

  • Trains. A perennial pet peeve powerhouse in Augusta, they are traffic blocking machines.
  • The Augusta Commission. A deep team, very capable of annoying almost everyone.
  • Pollen. The real march madness in the Garden City.
  • And new comer and possible Cinderella...GRU.

So, who do you like, or in this case, dislike?

"GRU, absolutely 100 percent the winner. That's my number one...GRU," said Hillary Odom.

"Whoa, I think right now it would have to be the pollen," said a guy named Skip.

"The pet peeve number one would be a real tossup between the Commission and GRU," Terrie Bennett said.

"I'd probably say pollen," said one of the many allergy suffers in town, "yes pollen."

"Let's do trains," added a man with clear sinuses.

"Your county commission aggravates me the most," said a lady from Evans.

"Trains," said Parker.

"That's your number one"we asked Parker. "No, I switch to the Commission," he said poring over the bracket.

"I've got two of them, GRU and Ricardo Azziz," added Kathy Hamrick.  

Those are bracket busters indeed.
