Sportscunter (Funny What a Difference One Little Letter Makes)
Our office seems cosmically prepared for March Madness. A lot of the managers are out of town in meetings. The conference-room T.V., which is not hooked up to cable or an antenna, gets only one channel . . . and that channel is CBS. And the workload is light enough that we can put things aside for 20 or 30 minutes while the early-afternoon games are ending and we can update the brackets.
Not much to report in the first day of the tournament. Our office pool has 13 brackets (two of them mine) and none of them were too badly ravaged yesterday. Except for that one woman who picked Alabama to get to the Final Four. Personally, I’m waiting for the moment North Carolina shows what a bad tournament team they are and the red ink really starts to flow.
Meanwhile, in the real March Madness, it looks like Cyndi Lauper and Blondie destroyed the competition (Siouxsie and Bananarama, respectively). Today, it’s back to the men’s side . . . well, sort of.
Human League vs. The Smiths
Adam Ant vs. Heaven 17
I’ll count the votes Sunday night. Have a great weekend, everyone. And thanks again for the discourse.
