Here’s a special entering-round-two edition of “I can’t believe anybody searched this.”
Somebody googled this term today and ended up on one of my increasing number of NCAA Tournament bracket posts.
The curious soul wondered enough to type in and click somewhere: “Is it cheating to change my bracket.”
Now, I could say: It depends on if you’re playing in a pool or just filling it out to make watching on TV more interesting.
Or, I could say: It depends upon how much you like the folks who are in your bracket pool.
Perhaps I could say: It depends upon how good a hacker you are and how cleanly you can conceal your cyber steps.
I will say: OF COURSE IT’S CHEATING IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BRACKET, NUMBSKULL.
And for those of you who have been following my progress right along: After those glorious two nights of games, I have picked 22 of 32 games correctly. I am tied with my dear wife Karen. I no longer think I may win the pool we’re in. My bowling teammate Steve tops the standings with 28 right, and my best bud Kingpin is not far behind, in 11th place with 26. Karen and I are two-thirds down the list.
Enjoy the weekend games.
Do you still have a shot at winning your bracket pool?
