But around this time of year I, just like a lot of other people, fill out my College Basketball NCAA Tournament bracket. And then, just like a lot of other people, after the first weekend I cry because of how bad I did. Now my crying is not only because I do so bad, but also because my DW always does so well.
Every March, the DW and I always fill out a basketball bracket. Now usually around here it's just for bragging rights, but we have filled them out for prizes as well. So one year the DW fills one out at her place of business, to which she ended up winning the whole thing. I think she brought home a couple hundy that year.
Then there was the one year that we played on the H.H Gregg website. Yeah she ended up winning a $500 gift certificate from H.H Gregg and another $500 to be used as a sports memorabilia store. We ended up bringing home a new t.v and a couple of signed baseballs. Yeah she rocks the brackets.
Which brings us to this year, and again we filled one out, and again, she's kicking my butt. So far she has 12 of the 16 teams left, where as I only have nine.
So the other night we're watching one of the games, you know one of those games that most people wouldn't have picked the underdog except my DW, and I ask her so why did you pick them?
Now before I go on let me explain the way I pick the
So when I asked the DW how and why she picks a certain team, her response....I just pick 'em.
What? You just pick em? What does that mean? I don't know, I just pick 'em. I don't know why?
To which I explained to her how much that drives me crazy. You see, I actually try to put some thought into it, where she just picks 'em. I explained that I would not be nearly as upset if she told me something like...well I thought about who they were playing and the type of defense they play, or who the best play is on both teams, and that's who I go with. BUT NOOOOOOOO. She just picks 'em.......She just picks 'em.
So tell me Lifers, how are you doing on your brackets? Do you play? Is your spouse beating you?
