Less Reading - More Basketball
My team of choice is the Butler Bulldogs - I went to Butler and when Butler was in the final against Duke last year, Jon and I were at the game. This isn't to say that I actually follow Butler Basketball at any time except for the NCAA tournament, because I most certainly do not. I am a very fair-weather fan and I'm not afraid to admit that. March Madness is just so addicting and it is most definitely because of the brackets and the betting.
My friends and I fill out brackets on Yahoo! Sports and it is so much fun to track my wins and losses. Jon and I usually have a side bet each year on whose bracket is best - but, I think he was so afraid of my psychic-picking prowess that this year we conveniently didn't think of a good enough bet in time. If I'm honest, I had Pitt winning last night against Butler - and my punishment for choosing against my team? A busted bracket.
So, did you watch the Butler/ Pitt game last night? I don't have any fingernails left after that game and consequently this is what I've been reading this morning:
This guy, who thinks losing is "cruel," No, the Nazi's were cruel - the NCAA tournament isn't cruel. Idiot.
This Kind Soul thinks refs should call every foul. Duh.
This becomes even more ridiculous when you find out that I actually commented on a sports article and made legitimate points. What is happening? March is truly a time for Madness and I just can't get enough basketball. In short, that is the reason why I'm only 1/2 way through Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall - but hopefully that post will be coming soon.
Happy March Madness! And, Go Butler!!
