Ah, spring…sunny days, birds chirping and March Madness. It’s tournament time, and with conference champs decided, today’s the day to fill out those brackets.
There is a method to some of the madness, as far as we can tell, even though it might not always end in a true championship pick. Which category do you fall under?
THE POOL SHARK
The one who’s in it to win it…and has money on each game. Talk about intense!
THE OFFICE BRACKETIER
A little friendly competition at work never hurt anyone, in fact it builds camaraderie…you now have something to talk about with your boss.
The numbers whiz who breaks down each team, player by player and their scoring capability, setting up charts amidst the bracket.
Do you bleed Duke blue? Everyone’s got a team they love: their alma mater, their home-state school, one they wish they would’ve gone to…you know, the chosen one.
THE COLOR ORDER
Don’t know much about the game? Go with your favorite color…or mascot. Too bad Southern Illinois University isn’t in it this year, the Saluki is a fun dawg to cheer on.
THE UNDERDOG ENTHUSIAST
Who doesn’t love a Cinderella story? Championships are made of this…remember NC State’s come-from-behind win in 1983? Or Gonzaga’s coming out party as a 10-seed in 1999?
This is the die-hard, the one who takes days off from work to sit in a room with two TVs, a desktop computer, laptop, iPad and phone going with every game on, so as not to miss a single basket.
Who do you have going all the way at the Big Dance?
