March-Madness-2015 Well it’s that time of the year again where sports fans show there masochistic side. What do I mean? You mean to tell me you’ve never filled out a bracket and then watched as it got destroyed in the first few hours of the tournament. At least ESPN understands and gives you a second chance when the tournament reaches the sweet sixteen. Of course that does nothing for the people in the office pools or just those who like to use the bracket as an excuse for not going to visit their mother-in-law. It’s heartbreaking to sit there all year following college basketball waiting for the tournament to start. Spending the few days before the game agonizing over your picks, then watching the tip off and poof you’re out of it. You run around screaming that this is it never again will you fill out a bracket only to have your heart broken during the very first games. But then after the Superbowl you’re sitting there and you can feel it. That slow knowing in your gut as peruse the sport channels and then you pick up a pencil put it down jump up and say no no, but you’re only avoiding the inevitable as once again you prepare to inter the world of broken hearts. But maybe just maybe this will be your year. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia where we have our hearts broken by the Champion League bracket.
