I'm a college football fan. Basketball, well, I really don't follow. My supervisor, Casey, sure does care though. Part of working in the office is filling out the NCAA Bracket each year.
Last year I literally picked according to what state I liked better, my gut hunch, or I would employ the exact science of which team has a prettier uniform to make my selections. I had not watched one game all year. I did no research. I simply guessed. But my guesses must be better than most, because I won.
This year I was presented with the same task--fill out the bracket. So I began clicking and filling it out in my usual fashion, and Casey quickly said, "Take your time--feel free to do research or whatever you want. No hurry."
I kept clicking.
Post on my door.
Within minutes all the guys were making fun of my bracket. I didn't care, to be honest.
Today I won the office bracket for the 2nd year in a row.
