Tweets beget tweets! I tweeted about exercising earlier this afternoon and a few minutes later received a tweet from the Meriden Record-Journal.
@geofffox would you like to enter in our NCAA Hoops Frenzy pool as a VIP?
Like so many media outlets the R-J is running a free bracket contest for the NCAA tournament. As policy the NCAA disapproves of gambling. Still, it’s tough to deny office pools and larger contests like this are part of the reason people care about (and watch) games they really shouldn’t care about!
I said I’d enter (and did), but really should be in the ex-VIP division.
@geofffox Fantastic! what should we title you as?
Leggy supermodel? I settled for meteorologist.
Along with the Record-Journal’s pool I’ve filled out two tickets for one run by a former co-worker. That’s tradition for me… as is his hunting me down to collect when I lose!
I don’t know much about college hoops. I haven’t kept current this season. Other than Kemba Walker the entire UCONN men’s team is a cypher to me.
I played it safe and picked a lot of favorites.
