Unless you picked the Duke Blue Devils in a nail-biting thriller over Butler in last year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament final, chances are you didn’t win the office pool. Sorry, better luck next year. Wait … it is next year. And March Madness is back and you now have another chance to pick the picks, talk the trash & slam-dunk those brackets.
Whether you went to a college that’s one of the lucky 65 to make the dance (although if I remember correctly, they’re expanding the field to 68 teams this year?), or just supporting a local team or perennial favorite, it’s time to don your basketball gear and show your true colors.
Selection Sunday happens March 13, then the first “play-in” games begin bright & early Tuesday. So suit up and get into the games. Good luck in your brackets, and good luck to your team. I’m picking Ohio State to go all the way, but I’m sure 9.2 million other people are too — so don’t count it as the inside scoop from a seasoned bracketologist.
