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.
