March Madness

It's now 12:30 a.m. and I just finished with my NCAA picks. This is quite a process!

My brother-in-law, Brad, always gets things going and this year is no different. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Brothers, Sisters, Grandma and Papa all participate. We had some technical difficulties this year, so I had to pick for my kids-sorry guys!

I've decided that I need to set up a special "Chick" site, as there are not enough details on any of the sports sites. I prefer to know the important things, such as location, team colors and mascot, the word to the fight song, how many cheerleaders and are they any good (the cheerleaders), weather, etc.You get the picture. Alas, I could find none of this info so I had to report to plan B.

This involved looking at each teams ranking,location, league...all the boring stuff that the guys look at. I had to create an edge so I decided to see if they had a #12 on the team, (my favorite number), or a Tyler ,( my favorite player). This process takes quite a bit of work and just a few web-sites!!!

With Ashleigh, I picked all the teams, within reason, that are local to us (West Coast), or places she'd like to visit! Not necessarily the best picks, but she could sweep with the odds!

With Tyler, I went will all the highest seeds, because that's what he would probably do!

No money involved, just bragging rights and the chance to trash talk!!!!

I'll keep you posted on my teams, but right now I don't even remember who I chose!!
