They say all 32 counties of Ireland were represented in the flags flying in the parade last week, but I wasn't counting. They, whoever they are, say you make your own luck in this world, but I have a hard time buying that. After the first two days of the 2013 Men's NCAA Basketball Tournament, I'm a measly 22-10. My South bracket has been just about blown apart. Marchin is not much better at 23-9. Now, I've won the pool at work a couple of times, taking home hundreds each time, but that was just pulling a team from a hat. Kansas in 2008 and Arkansas back in 1994 brought me some 'fun money' to splurge. Selecting all 62 teams and their results over the last three weeks in March has never been a chore I've had a lot of success at.
I guess you could say, I've been 'lucky at love' though.
NCAA Basketball? Not so much.
