March Annoyingness

I really don't like basketball.

It's pretttty much like watching whiny babies play ping pong. Back and forth and back and forth. Bleh. I mean I guess that's pretty much every sport out there except baseball (but I've been a baseball watcher starting with my high school boyfriend) and golf. But don't even get me started on golf. #mostboringsportever (sorry Meg!)

The last couple years I did the bracket thing tho. Tom's friends do one and I was like well ya ok, I'll do one too. Except I pay no attenton to picking the teams. This year I actually put some thought into it though - I picked teams based on which location I would rather visit. I'm pretty sure it's going to work out. I have Hawaii and some school from Washington State in the championship game.

I actually have the WA team winning. I think Hawaii would be cool but I'm going to Punta Cana in a month and a half so I feel like I'm good with the whole tropical location thing for the mo.

I didn't go to Uconn but everyone else did. Also this is a football game because BASKETBALL IS THE WORST.
Here are some alternatives to calling the spaz show that is the NCAA tournament, "March Madness"
  1. March Annoyingness
  2. The "every bar is filled with guys but none of them pay attention to you" tournament
  3. The "guys don't pay attention to you regardless of location" tournament
  4. Wonder what it's like to be a cheerleader at an Ivy League school-ness
  5. Springtime Life Ruining
  6. Time to be irrationally invested in a sport you don't care about and schools you never went to
  7. The few weeks when college sports matter to everyone
  8. How long does this realllly last? Is it actually all month? Madness
  9. "I would seriously rather be drinking outside. Even if it was raining" tournament
  10. Some of March and a little bit of April complete cbnoxiousness
I realize I didn't use as much alliteration as I should have but there is a game on right now and I can't think with all the god damn sneaker squeaking.

  1. Adriana... too funny. Love your take on March Madness. I sent your link to my sis who has 2 boys and 1 hubby who love it so much. She does a lot of eye rolling around this time. Have a great week!

  3. girl i feel you. plus, you think golf is boring, you should try and watch cricket. on second thought, don't, it will literally bore you to death. yes, literally.
    the sneaker squeaking drives me bonkers. i am not a fan of basketball, i've only ever been to one game live (college) though i can definitely get into any sport live (except for golf or cricket because of aforementioned dying from boredom). KC is always like 'i don't even like basketball' and then proceeds to hog the HGTV machine (that's another name, 'the month of Kristen not watching HGTV because KC is hogging the damn TV') even though 'he doesn't even get that into it' as he is screaming at the TV. he does the same thing for college football. LIES. HE LIES.
    anyway. I love your strategy of picking teams. my work does a thing and they tell me what my team is and i'm just like.. tell me if I won money. That's all I care about, k?

  4. March Madness: the reason why more baseball spring training games aren't on TV. Baseball > basketball
