The NCAA tournament gets underway tonight with the so-called “First Four” play-in round. Which means it’s also time for the over-enthusiastic sports guy in your office to shove a bracket in your face for you to fill out and take part in the office pool.
WE GET IT, MITCH, IT’S YOUR JOB. WE DON’T CARE WHO’S BETTER BETWEEN GONZAGA AND VILLANOVA. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT A “GONZAGA” IS! AND VILLANOVA SOUNDS LIKE THE VILLAIN OF A SPANISH TELENOVELLA.
We feel better.
Still, bracket challenges are a big part of office culture. In fact, it is estimated that 36.5 million adults will fill out a bracket this week. But, if you’re not into sports and, unfortunately, K-State isn’t it in the tournament, how do you pick?
A small percentage (5 percent) base their picks off a team’s colors, while another 5 percent go with the mascots.
Good luck with your bracket this week. Be aware that it will probably be in flames by 3 p.m. on Thursday.
OKAY, MITCH. WE GET IT. YOU NEED OURS. YALE. THAT’S OUR PICK TO WIN.
