There it is.. my official bracket. The madness starts tomorrow and I'll probably see more college basketball tomorrow than I have all year (I have watched zero NBA!) This bracket was filled out in one swift stroke of the pen. No scratch-outs, no crumpled up brackets thrown in the trash, and no other brackets lying around with different picks. I feel pretty good about it.
Tomorrow is also the day that results in more people calling in sick to work than any other day. I don't know the number of lost profit that results from the lack of manpower, but I'm hoping our fragile economy can handle it. I actually think it's a great day for the economy. Workers will be paid to sit at their favorite Pubs to eat, drink and be merry. The bars make $$, the waiters/waitresses make $$, and the bookies make lots of $$!
Since I've started this blog I haven't spent a lot of time talking about my love for the Terps. I'm a huge fan and feel that they are the one team that has let me down the least in the past 10-15 years. NCAA Champs, ACC Champs, and even when they have down years they find a way to beat Duke and UNC! Go TERPS!!
Cheers and Hail
