BRACKETBALL

  

Are you in a bracket? What’s it like in there? Do they let you out every now and then? I’m asking, because I have never participated in the Final Four. This isnt a conscious decision that I’ve made. I just never knew what I was doing.

 

Here's a short story you might find humorous...

 

A number of years ago, during march Madness…a friend of mine said he was going for the Wildcats. I thought that sounded good…a wildcat…yeah. It’s a mean, nasty animal, that most of the other creatures run away from…yeah, with a name like that, they’re bound to win. Okay…so I decided when someone asked me who I thought would win the Final Four…I’d just say, “Wildcats”. Simple, right? I’ll sound really smart…and they won’t realize that I have no idea what I’m talking about. My foolproof plan worked perfectly, UNTIL…that one smart aleck asked me, “Who ya got in the Final Four?”. I answered very flippantly…”Wildcats”…which sounded very informed…I was so proud of myself. I had arrived. I was a sports genius…a regular guy! “Just set the trophy on the mantle boys!”

But…he wasn’t happy with such a simple response. He had to know more…like…”which Wildcats?”. What?! More than one team has that name? No! I had no idea! Could that be right? Is that legal? Could the Wildcats play the Wildcats in the Final Four? Well…at least I’d know the Wildcats would come out on top! How do people find the time to keep track of all this stuff?!

 

So, go Wildcats! (Are they even in the tournament this year?)

 

 

P.S. Happy St Patricks Day! May all your brackets be green...
