It’s that time of again! It’s time for the NCAA basketball tournament and I am beyond excited about it!! I’m talking even more exciting than The Bachelor, Scandal, Carrie Diaries and Revenge conversations that my friends and I have on a weekly basis. I don’t get this excited for the NBA playoffs, I watch a few (SEC) bowl games for college football and if I’m being real honest, I only care about the Super Bowl for the party ((unless the Packers are in it)) – but when March Madness comes around I get hella cray. I love filling out brackets and watching as many games as I can and this year the Final Four will be played in HOTLANTAAAAA and since my dad is a college basketball coach I am staking claim to his tickets!
I feel like everyone loves March Madness – even those who don’t watch college basketball the entire season like I do seem to get a little giddy when it comes to the tournament. The best part about it is you don’t have to know a damn thing about college basketball to fill out a bracket and potentially win money and/or bragging rights with the guy you’re dating. HOWEVER when it does come to creating a pool with the guy you like or the guys you hang out with here is my advice: tread lightly. March Madness gives you the perfect excuse to spend time with the guy you’re into. You know he’s going to be watching the game so make a few bets on who will win, grab a beer and cheer on the Blue Devils…. ehh, I mean your favorite team. But make it all light and fun and just let your winning bracket do all the talking.
If you don’t know anything about basketball and want to fill out a bracket for work or with your friends definitely do it. We are doing an A5 bracket and I have every intention of kicking everyone’s butt! Normally I would say don’t be that clichéd girl and pick the teams based off of team colors or whose mascot would win in a fight but one of my friends picked her bracket off of the better looking roster and did really well a couple of years ago so pick however you want because everyone is an expert at this time of the year. Besides, college basketball?? Umm yeah a HUGE selection of sexy, tall, muscular men to look at and choose your brackets by (yes borderline pedy, I know)? Maybe that’s how I’ll do mine this year… yeahhhh not at all but it is fun looking, in a non-pedophile-ish way for sure.
I do want to end this post with a heads up! The finals are on April 8th which means a major conflict with Carrie Diaries and How I Met Your Mother so get those DVR’s on record because your priority better be the National Championship game!
