March Madness

I can count on one hand the number of college basketball games I watch each year, but if you think lack of knowledge is going to stop me from filling out an NCAA bracket then you don't know me very well. I've just returned from leaving my bracket with my local bar. My method is simple: go online and see what the pros pick and copy them. With little allegiance I don't get bogged down in emotional decisions (my college leads the NIT every year), so I make all the high probability picks. Last year I made a mistake and left a few slots blank and still won a little money. Plus, more importantly, since I'll find myself watching basketball at some point in the tournament I'll at least have a team I know nothing about to cheer for. And then I can gloat about their winning to other people I don't know.
