A lot of people do their March Madness picks based on mascots. Considering your odds of winning, that sounds as legitimate as anything else. To make it more fun, the Washington Post is introducing mascot emoji

An emoji are those cute little icons people use to make smiley faces, or show tears, or express "LOL." They're kind of becoming an art form and one artist has done all 68 faces in the 2015 men's NCAA tournament.

If you read the comments you'll find people noticing most faces are white and male. That seems unnecessarily sexist and racist, but I still think they're adorable.
