It's Madness, I Tell You

I L-O-V-E March Madness!!!!!!!!  At the firm where I worked in New Orleans, some of the directors would take us all to lunch and we'd watch some of the first Thursday games before heading back for a long day's work.  It was so much fun and renewed our readiness to work through tax season.  I really missed having those kind of work outings, so last year, Mark surprised me and picked me up and we watched LSU play in the lunchtime game on opening day.  It was so fun that we're going to do it again today.  Only this year, we won't be watching the Tigers. 

Isn't March Madness so awesome?  Do you have your brackets ready?  Mark only has one "sheet of integrity."  I, on the other hand, have many sheets of no integrity.  And I like it that way!  I have a sheet where I pick based on the region where the teams are playing - sort of a home field advantage bracket, if you will.  Then I have a combo Upset Special/Because I'm a Catholic bracket where I have teams like Sienna, UTEP, and Cornel coming out of the first round and Catholic school teams like Gonzaga, Notre Dame, Villanova, and Georgetown, going a little further than they probably will.  Finally, I have a cold hard cash bracket where I pick the favorites to win out - how boring.  The best part about March Madness is a good Cinderella story.

Do you get into March Madness?  Do you prefer to see a Cinderella Story or the sure thing win?  Who's your favorite this year?  Mine is Kansas, but I'd like to see Kentucky respresent the good ole SEC!!!


  1. Happy March Madness! Today at my work we were allowed to wear our team's shirts and jeans. Fun!

  2. Mine is definitely Kansas!!! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

  3. hahaha I laughed out loud at your selection perimeters! pull for Wofford to upset Wisconsin and keep on their glass slipper!!

  4. Hee.....Love your Catholic bracket! So sad that this is literally the first year I can even remember NOT filling out a bracket. Such a bummer!

  5. Love your breakdown of brackets - I usually watch the SEC but since LSU is no where to be found, not really that much interested, but would love for Tennesse to win.

  6. I usually am in a bracket, but this year I just didn't have time to get my picks in. :( So bummed.

    I must say, I was happy to see that Kansas lost today. I know the screwed up alot of people's brackets, but I like it when the underdog wins!!
