Bracketology



It's March Madness, which means that it's time to actually pay attention to college basketball and try to guess the odds of who will win the National Championship.

And I like that you think I actually am going to talk about strategy and how to go about choosing the different teams that will win. I'm not. I don't have a clue.

I definitely don't pay attention to much college basketball, and I really only look at teams that I recognize as big players in college. After that, it's a guessing game for me. Plus, I really want to see teams my friends and family love make it to the Championship.

Needless to say I rarely, if ever, win in my brackets.

FYI, in case you're not sure what this whole bracket stuff means . . . . March Madness is the term for college basketball playoffs for the National Championship. It's an actual true playoff system, and since football doesn't have a system (the "Bowl System" doesn't count, it's all teams being bought), people jump on it and have fun with it. So groups of people come together and select how they think the teams will fare out in the playoffs, and choose who they think will be the National Champions. Some play for money, some just play for bragging rights. The group Cathy started (which you should totally join), is all for bragging rights. I totally never get to brag. But, it's still fun. 

It was Selection Sunday this past weekend (aka the teams that weren't positive if they made it in the playoffs were guaranteed, and you can start filling out your brackets), and this Thursday starts the playoff games.

It's fun to compete on something that doesn't really matter (if you aren't a die hard college basketball fan), so I recommend you join in on the fun.

If you don't know a thing about sports, and can win a bracket . . . . who wouldn't want to do it!!
