So tomorrow is the official start of March Madness which rivals Christmas as my favorite time of the year. I know non-sports people hate this time of year, but I love it!!! And the best part of March Madness? (besides the office pool) The first two days when you can literally watch college basketball All. Day. Long. from mid morning until after midnight. Gotta love it!
I filled out my bracket today and now my fingers are crossed that I picked the right ones. I won the family bracket pool one year (about four years ago) but since then, I haven't done so well. My sister won most of the pools last year (by being the only person in the world to pick George Mason to get to the Final Four) but I chalk that up to luck more than anything. After all, who knew that George Mason would go that far?
I don't know who this year's George Mason will be, but I can't wait to find out. I don't think my Cats will be going too far, but there is always hope. I'm also rooting for Texas A&M since one of the guys I work with is a big fan and I need a team that has half a chance to win some games to cheer for. (They also get to play in Lexington which I'm sure has Matt excited.) We'll have to see how things go. The games tip off early tomorrow!!
