I Don't Care About Your Brackets

It's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament season. I love it. Most guys do. The country goes crazy over it. And, like most folks, I like to play some sort of a game with friends and/or co-workers where I make my own picks and compete against others. You can play for money or pride...or both.

Do you want to know who I'm picking to win the National Championship? Of course you don't. And why would you? This is exactly how I feel. I get so annoyed at turning on the radio or television and hearing everyone's "picks" or "brackets." (Memo to ESPN: we're all tired of the made up word, "bracketology.")

I like to listen to sports radio but this time of year I have to turn it off. This disease goes beyond the sports "experts." In addition to Dick Vitale's picks, you also get to hear who Angelina Jolie or Eddie Deezen thinks will win the national championship. There's also the local flavor you are forced to endure. Just turn on your evening news and your weather forecaster will tell you that he's picked North Carolina to win it all.

I DON'T CARE!!!!!!!

If it don't have wheels and can't turn corners at speeds above 100 mph, it's not a real sport.

I'm just saying.

Since I'm not a sports fan, other than Nascar and baseball, I guess I'm not missing much! Thanks for the info.

By the way, I was joking about Nascar. Rog, I watched it for the first time over the weekend. I did it because of what you said about Indy versus Nascar. I have to say you are right.

You know what got to me the most? How much advertising was plastered on their uniforms and cars! Way too much.
