Madness

I need a bit o' Luck of the Irish these next few weeks.
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.

* ps. If you don't follow the MADNESS, just move along. There's nothing to see here.
*ps2. Go Hoosiers!

  2. I'm pretty bad at the "betting" part. I'd just rather watch.

  3. I don't even know what teams are in! I do know, though, that one of our highly rated local teams is out--Georgetown. :-(

  5. I don't follow college basketball until March Madness. I was all excited this year because my team New Mexico was pretty big but they lost in the first round to Harvard (Harvard vs Harvard on the Rio Grande, is what I told my friends.)

    So, I'm watching Michigan pound a determined but hapless VCU. I love this tournament.

  6. This year no one seems to want it. The champion will probably win backing in. What about Harvard and WGCU?

  7. My team from Arizona is kicking Harvard's behind right now. I am hoping for a win! Nice shot. GO WILDCATS!

  8. Yeah, my Saint Louis U. Billikens got their booty kicked today. But you should win roughly once every 64 years, shouldn't you?

  9. I'm not really part of the madness you describe, but I certainly admire all the flags!

  11. A few years ago was the first time I filled out brackets, knowing ZERO about the teams, doing it just for fun w/family. First round results: I got 16/16. Really. My relatives, who had slaved over their pickings were not amused . . . :))

  12. I'm actually doing much better than normal. Not show me the money good, but at least I'm still in it.
