Brackets

Today all across the country there are offices, friends, and families passing around NCAA brackets. It is what we like to call March Madness. There will people spending hours of time analyzing and then over analyzing their choices. There will be trash talking and people explaining why they know the 13 seed is always a dangerous seed to look out for. However, the thing that really is great to watch is the majority of women that fill out the brackets. The sad thing is, is that they usually win the stupid things. You will have girls making their picks based on who they think has the best colors in the team's uniforms or what city or state they like best. However, in my experience with these brackets...that crap usually works.

March Madness is a great time. You have all of these little schools going into the tournament just hoping that their foot fits into Cinderalla's glass slipper. There will be buzzer beaters. There will be kids giving their performances of a lifetime. There will be heartbreak.

I don't have my bracket completed just yet. I have many hours of work to do before that happens. I am still trying to figure out if my alma mater, the University of Northern Iowa is going to pull of a first round victory. By the way did anyone notice that all 3 state schools in Iowa made the tourney? However, when it is all completed I will one of the many who thinks my bracket is the winner. I will sit back and watch the games, only to be shown that my brackets suck once again.

Catch the fever. It's MARCH MADNESS BABY!

You need to send out the link to the tournament bracket contest on-line.

I can't figure out how to post a general invitation to the site. I don't think I can make it work.
