Unlike Obama, Romney doesn't plan to fill out an NCAA basketball tournament bracket
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' Mitt Romney clearly is not running to be the nation's top sports fan.
The GOP presidential candidate says he won't be filling out a college basketball tournament bracket, an annual tradition for millions of Americans including President Barack Obama.
Romney told reporters Tuesday that he isn't following college basketball closely enough this year to predict which teams will make the Final Four and which team will win the tournament.
Basketball player and fan Obama is making his NCAA tournament predictions public for a third straight year. ESPN says it will release portions of his bracket late Tuesday.
Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron are planning to attend a "First Four" matchup in Dayton, Ohio, on Tuesday between Mississippi Valley State and Western Kentucky.
