Amazingly, Gabe finished in 18th place -- out of more than 1,200 -- in my Daily Quickie Readers pool of ESPN.com's Tournament Challenge. I was hundreds of places behind. (Gabe's mom was the real star: Not only was she responsible for "guiding" Gabe's wildly successful picks, but she won her own pool, too.)
Combine that with Gabe's in utero performance a year ago (tied for 30th out of more than 10,000 -- yes, ten-THOUSAND -- entries), and he obviously has some serious NCAA Tournament bracket-picking mojo. As far as fan skills go, that's not a bad one to have.
