March Madness

Saturday, March 22, 2008

For those of you who are not fans of college basketball (ie. my family), march madness refers to how the best college basketball teams all play each other at the end of March and somehow, (through all the single-elimination-chaos) a winner is crowned! Every year, I enter my bracket (what teams I think will win) and 'compete' with my friends. This year, I entered two brackets, one with school friends and one with a friend from Boston and I'm first in each one! Now, the tournament only started, so I could still end up being last, but I just want enjoy being at the top while it lasts.

It's crazy that I do so well in these things since I know very little about basketball. With that in mind, I thought I'd share my strategy for choosing teams:

I look at their current ranking and use a combination of intuition and whatever name I like the best. That's it, really! I guess I'm a little lucky after all.

Speaking as Linda's sister, I have to say that I am very into sports-especially basketball. I play on a ladies team at church and love college sports - football the most (hey I am from the South-it is a religion here!) I have not been that interested in March madness this year because the Gators did not make it in, but Davidson looks interesting. I love the underdog!
