You guys, I LOVE this time of year. LOVE. IT. Which... I guess is rather expected considering I live in college basketball country. And I went to college and now work at the greatest basketball school in the history of time. (That isn't just me randomly making such a claim. We are legitimately a contender for BEST OF ALL TIME).
So for the next few weeks I will watch as many games as I can. I will run the bracket pool at work and I will cheer on my cats on any social media outlet I can find. I will cry when any underdog wins (as long as it isn't against my cats) because I get EXTREMELY EMOTIONALLY INVOLVED in these games. All of them. If there is the potential for a college age boy to pull his jersey up over his eyes to hide his tears, I am THERE.
Actually, it's sorta funny because everyone at work seems surprised I am running the bracket pool. Like, they keep acting shocked about it. Like "YOU are going to do this?? YOU know things about BASKETBALL??" And I keep randomly saying things like "My dad always loved this stuff when I was little so I grew up loving it" or "Nick and I will watch the games anyway, so it isn't a big deal" but all of a sudden I have wanted to say "Is it because I am a GIRL? You know girls can like sports too, right??" I mean, lots of girls are the most die hard sports fans I know. Girls can LOVE SPORTS! GIRLS can do the math and keep track of brackets! GIRLS ARE TOTALLY EQUAL WITH BOYS! Then I get myself worked into a "this is sorta SEXIST" huff before I decide I don't really care that much about people acting sexist as long as I don't have to mow the lawn.
So... I guess that's it. I am running my bracket pool at work and I am awesome at it. I love me some Kentucky basketball. I plan to lay around and watch games all weekend while maybe enjoying a green beer on Saturday. How about you?
Random, year old picture included because I couldn't find a recent one where were are wearing Blue to cheer on our boys. But last year, this year. No big difference. March= GO BIG BLUE!
PS. I am finally really feeling better. Honestly, this time I am serious and not just saying that.
