Do you love Kentucky? Do you love...waffles?

If you do, your bracket may be as good as a four-year-old's. But is it better?

Can anything be better in March Madness than Kentucky and waffles? These are the questions that lead to great brackets.

Max Levy, 4, and his sister Zoe, 7, are back picking brackets again, willing to put their college basketball prognosticative skills up against everyone in the country.

While Zoe has been picking brackets since before she was two years old—she's finally learned the value of chalk this season—Max is a relative novice in the bracket-picking game, with this being just his second stint at figuring out the tournament field. (Last year's bracket was featured on Good Morning America, so he became a bit of an instant star in the pundit chair.)

Max and Zoe had their brackets officially announced on Sirius XM Bleacher Report Radio this year, and you can see the accompanying video, as well as a printout of their selections for posterity.

Join the B/R Radio Bracket Challenge group here to put your bracket up against the kids and all the B/R Radio hosts and listeners. Winner(s) will get a pretty nice Bleacher Report prize package and the ability to brag to the rest of the universe—we are on satellite radio—about how smart you are.

But first you have to beat a four-year-old, of course.

There is a good spin to beating a four-year-old in your bracket challenge: We can help to raise awareness for a cause literally near and dear to Max's heart.

March is not just for brackets. It's also National Hemophilia Awareness Month. Max will turn five years old on April 14, and he was diagnosed with moderate hemophilia A at around nine months old. He had to wear a helmet and knee pads until this summer, when he traded them in for a portacath in his chest for prophylactic treatments.

We decided to have a little fun again with this year’s challenge, as we are planning to donate $100 for every team Max gets right in his Final Four.

As you can see, Max picked Kentucky, Louisville, UCLA and Wofford, because he loves waffles, in this year's Final Four. (Zoe took chalk, with Kentucky over Villanova in the finals.)

B/R

We hope others will join in the spirit of March Madness coinciding with National Hemophilia Awareness Month and add a little of their own fun to his bracket challenge.

At the very least, you better hope your bracket is better than a four-year-old's.
