Matt Hasselbeck's Son Dominating ESPN Bracket Challenge

When it comes to picking winners in NCAA bracket challenges, everyone has their systems. From scientific to personal preference, everyone can be a March Madness expert, at least until the games get started. But for one local kid -- and a famous one, at that -- the method of choosing mascots has worked so far in this year's ESPN bracket challenge. Matt Hasselbeck's son, at nine years old, currently has the 103rd-best bracket in the challenge, all because of his not-so-unique, or scientific, prediction method.

That puts Henry in the top 1 percent of all entries. Sister Mallory isn't too shabby, either. She ranks in the top 3 percent.

Just as surprising is how Henry filled in his bracket. He went through game-by-game with Dad, usually deciding the winners based on mascots.

Just goes to show when it comes to making bracket picks, maybe more information isn't better. Hasselbeck probably should've entered his son's bracket in whatever pool he may be involved in.
