That's going to piss off the five people in the office that take it seriously.


Tell me there might be some cash coming your way and not just bragging rights like your lame fantasy football league.


Turns out the one pool I entered this year broke the same way. Kentucky, Kansas and Ohio State all are alive and I have Kentucky beating Kansas for the championship. As long as those two make the final game, looks like I'll be pocketing a little cash.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

Office pool. Human Resources Directive 6 of 1992 forbids gambling during city work hours or using city resources. Bragging rights and ayea of possession of a screwed up trophy from 1967 with Japanese writing found in a resale shop with shit like toy vikings glued all over it are all I get.

The pool with cash payouts I am in? 7th place out of 11.

Winner, winner! Chicken dinner! No matter what happens tonight.

I thought I was a goner in my pool when Missouri checked out, but the rest of the Final Four held up and, for some reason, a ton of dolts didn't have Kentucky in the title game.

I hope Kansas wins tonight, but can't imagine it happening. They can throw a couple of junk defenses at Kentucky and maybe slow them down, but if Thomas Robinson gets into foul trouble, Jeff Withey will have his hands full with Anthony Davis. I say Kentucky wins 82-71.

And if they do, I can appreciate the excellence. This is the best starting five since Florida repeated in 2007.

Just heard from Mom, who will be attending the game tonight. The Saints are something like 100-0 when she attends, so if any of you are degenerate gamblers, call your bookie and bet the farm on Kansas, Mom's preferred team tonight.

(If you actually do call your bookie and bet the farm on Kansas, you are an idiot)

If the National Anthem was any indication on how well the game will be played, I'm certainly not watching the whole game.
