When I married the Coach, I knew that my knowledge of sports was extremely limited.
There were a few things he had to teach me.
OK. Lots of things.
One is that it's absolutely required that you fill out a bracket for March Madness.
So as a newlywed (of three months), I filled out my very first.
Even though I'm not sure I knew what the NCAA even was.
And I mostly picked teams because I liked the name of the school.
Or the color of their jerseys.
I've given it up now the we have children old enough to participate.
The Coach just needs someone to beat - it doesn't have to be me. Any kid will do.
So the Coach and the four oldest were busy filling out their brackets at the lunch table today. Daughter (#7) begged to fill one out, too.
Which made the Coach proud.
He read each game (two names) to her and let her pick one, then wrote it down on her bracket.
The winner (with the most correct games) gets whatever they want at Sonic.
Maybe, just maybe, the Coach will lose this year.
But don't bet on it!
