Okay...I know this is NOT normally something I would blog about... but tonight as I am waiting for 60 Minutes to come on, the NCAA tournament was running waaaaayyy longer than the allotted time slot... so I sat and watched it.
Now...back when I was married, March meant filling out a basketball bracket on teams that I knew nothing about so that my ex, R., could have an "extra chance at winning" the pool he had entered.
Like I said, I knew nothing about these teams. I didn't follow college basketball... I mean, I occasionally went to a basketball game when I was in college, but I was by no means a follower.
So when these brackets were set in front of me, I had a few criterion that I went through in order to pick my winning teams.
1. If they had a really cool or strange name, I picked them.
2. If they had a good mascot, I picked them.
3. (and when all else failed) I'd check out their team colors...if they had a good color scheme, I'd pick them.
You'd be surprised at how well my picks worked :)
For one...Xavier (cool name) won yesterday.
For two...the Purdue Boilermakers (cool team mascot name...even though I had no idea what a boilermaker was till just recently~ i.e.- train, as in, locomotive...yeah, the picture in my brain of a Boilermaker was much more impressive) They, too, won.
And thirdly...the UNI Panthers have it going on with their Purple and Gold. Yep, you guessed it. They won too.
Too bad I wasn't playing the bracket this year with my awesome picks!
...I never did care for March Madness anyways...
