It is an absolutely monumental day in the life of one Kelly Gentile. I filled out my very own March Madness bracket. Yep, you heard it right a bracket.
I know you might think the last thing I filled out was my shipping information at Nordstroms but-- you'd be wrong. They obviously have that saved.
The last actual thing I filled out was however, shopping related. Babies R Us absolutely does not have my information saved. A "Congratulations you just ruined your life!" presented was warranted as someone did push a watermelon-sized object out of their va-jay so Babies R Us online was the obvious shopping venue.
Back to the point... I don't do sports. I do Cleveland sports. And there is a huge difference that should be noted. Cleveland sports are easy. I love the CAVS, Browns and Indians and I never expect any of them to win. I don't know things about 'great defense', or 'Cinderella' teams because we are always losing --and I've come to terms with that.
So the thought of filling out an entire bracket, based on actual knowledge of basketball teams, seemed absolutely ridiculous and impossible to me. However, my need for a pair of Loubs is stronger and with a $400 (and growing) pot--I was in.
I signed up for a website that I never imagined I would visit, CBS Sports. I took two hours diligently researching the March Madness process and filling out my personal bracket finally, I sacrificed $20 (at least 4 Starbucks trips) to take a chance at winning it all!
There are certain things that set my bracket apart but most importantly, the number one difference between me and the entire world: I have UNC winning it all. I am confident that this is going to happen and I am absolutely taking home the entire pot of money (that I will quickly transform into my very first pair of Loubs!)
Have you filled out your 2012 bracket yet, who do you think will take it all?
