March Madness and Green Beer

I live in basketball country.  College basketball is like a religion around here because we have two of the best teams in the country right in our backyard.  Duke and Carolina.  I am the most indecisive person ever so I like them both.  Which everyone tells me that is crazy and not allowed.  Duke fans hate Carolina fans and Carolina fans hate Duke.  With a passion. It gets pretty nasty. When they play each other it is like a national holiday around here and that is all you will see on your Facebook feed all day. 

I am bad luck for a team though.  Every time I wear my Duke shirt, Carolina wins and when I wear my Carolina shirt Duke wins.  

We take March Madness seriously around here.  I remember in grade school them showing the games on TV during class.  I always seem to get in some bracket pool.  I have two brackets going this year, but I don’t feel awesome about my picks.  I have Ohio winning it all in one and Duke winning it all in the other.  (I bet just because I did this Carolina will end up winning it all or something!)

Do you do brackets?  Who do you have winning it all?

Today at work we had a March Madness/St. Patty’s day event where we had all the basketball games on these big projectors, FREE BEER, raffles/giveaways, and snacks like popcorn, big soft pretzels, and chips/queso.  Did I mention I love my job?!

I’m going out to an Irish pub tonight.  I will not be drinking Guinness though (not a fan).  My old roommate is from Savannah and we have been down there a couple times for St. Patty’s day.  If you haven’t been, you need to go to experience it at least once.  How are you celebrating St. Patty’s day this year?

I'm a KU fan and have been since living in Kansas City :) I don't fill out brackets, but following basketball is so much fun to me! Much better than football!

Lol. They must feel your disloyality. That's why each team can't win when you're wearing their shirt. ;) We have that around here too - Oregon and Oregon State. They're the Ducks and the Beavers, and very strict enemies. We call anyone who likes both a platypus. ;)
