March Madness

March 13, 2013

It is time for that phenomenon known as March Madness. One of these years a 16 seed will beat a 1 seed. How many times have you actually collected any money on a pool? I know I am still in the hole, but I did win a high school state finals pool one year. I can thank the Van Arsdale twins for that one. Did you remember they played at Manual High School in Indianapolis? It is a shame the tax people or gaming commission or whomever is in charge could get you in trouble for taking part in one of these pools. I am sure organized crime is setting most of the pools up in local offices. Ha! Ha! What is fun, though, is getting behind a team just because you drew them in a pool. This Purdue grad would even root for IU if I had them in a pool. One thing is for sure, and that is, for the next couple of weeks a lot of business time is going to be spent following the NCAA tourney. This just might be the year no #1 seed makes the final four, and that low seed upsets the apple cart. There does not seem to be the overwhelming favorite like we have had in the past. I will spend some time watching the games like most of you will.
