JAMIE’S BLOG – DAY 80 :: march madness

21 Mar
It’s March Madness! Justin insisted that I fill out an ESPN bracket online. So I reluctantly did.

I haven’t been watching the tournament. I haven’t paid attention to the regular season. I have NO idea what team has which players who can do this or that. Whatever.

So I took my precious time and filled out a bracket paying close attention to rankings and of course rooting for the teams that I have any sort of affinity towards. (KU, that’s for you Laura and Lisa!)

Then I submitted the bracket and voila! It was immediately lost. ESPN gave me a error screen. “What?” I exclaimed feeling like my time has been totally wasted and now I had to do it all over again. So I rushed through it, not paying attention to anything, just clicking buttons for the sake of clicking buttons to fill out the brackets.

Yesterday I logged in and guess what? I had only two teams wrong. Placed in the 99.5% of entrants and somewhere near the 96,000 place.

Tonight I logged in and guess what? I had only two teams wrong. Placed in the 99.6% and moved up to 51,051 place out of approximately 11.57 million brackets.

Here’s proof of this madness:

All because I had no clue what I was doing.
I guess the old saying ignorance is bliss isn’t that far off.

More tomorrow.
