Today is a big day in the Reissig home. You see, today is Selection Sunday, the day we pick our teams for our NCAA basketball tournament bracket. Up until a few years ago the only madness I experienced in March was cramming for mid-terms. Living with the 2520 girls changed everything, and now I am hooked. Then last year my family, Daniel, and I all filled out a bracket.
We were really into it.
And I won. The whole thing.
Not only did I win. I had all four teams in the Final Four in my bracket, and I picked the winning team. I grew up in a family of sports lovers, I married a sports lover, and I, quite frankly, have no athletic skill or knowledge. The gene totally skipped me. I just pick blindly and act like I know what's going on. It drives the sports enthusiasts crazy (like my husband and my youngest brother). But I win, and that is all that matters.
So tonight starts the selection and Thursday starts the craziness. We are looking forward to it. I like to think of it as the Olympics, part 2. The madness has begun and I am hoping to continue my winning streak. It's my one attempt at sporting ability. I have to make it count.
