Every year, my husband and his family get together just before March Madness to pick their teams to win. This year they did it via conference call, and I happened to be there while it took place. I know nothing about college basketball; honestly, I barely recognized some of the names of the schools. And yet somehow The Hubs was inspired to challenge me to a college basketball team-picking contest as well. (Do you hear how ridiculous this is? I don’t even know the terminology for this sort of thing.)
But hey, the winner gets a home-cooked meal, and because I enjoy both cooking and eating, I win either way. So I printed some brackets and filled mine out. I kinda paid attention to the rankings, I guess. But mostly I chose my teams based on how many people I knew from their city or state, and how much I happened to like those people. Good people deserve to celebrate, I figure. So in a perfect world, this is how March Madness plays out this year:
