It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad March

It’s here! Finally the biggest and best day of the year has arrived. The NCAA tournament has begun!

(Editor’s Note: Today is not really the most important day.)

Wait… what do you mean it isn’t the most important day?

(Editor’s Note: I mean it really is not that important of a day at all. Do you really want to write a whole post about this?)

Yes. The tournament is important to a lot of people…

(Editor’s Note: That is, by far, the worst idea I’ve ever heard. Not everyone cares about this stupid tournament. For instance, there are people who would rather watch “The Real Housewives of Oshkosh, Wisconsin” than watch a bunch of sweaty giants throw an orange ball around.)

Yeah, but…

(Editor’s Note: Listen. If you are going to insist on doing this, at least make sure you keep EVERYONE engaged. You can’t just talk about sports and have everyone keep reading. They’ll skip your blog and head to the Drudge Report or Perez Hilton or something. Come on!)

Fine, whatever. You know, you aren’t the boss of me. I can do…

(Editor’s Note: Carry on.)

Anyway, as I was saying… the tournament has begun! The brackets have been filled out. There’s only one thing missing.


Here I am at work with game after game going on. Yet, my NCAA basketball coverage is limited to hoping a news website might show the score of the Syracuse and North Carolina-Asheville game.

(Editor’s Note: Boring…)

Excuse me?

(Editor’s Note: We get it. You’re going to talk about how hard it is to be at work during March Madness. Very creative.)

Well, I’m sooooo sorry. Do you have something better to write about?

(Editor’s Note: A lot of people are talking about the Ides of March today.)

The movie?

(Editor’s Note: No, you idiot. It was a festive day for the Roman god Mars. It was also the day that Caesar was stabbed to death and… you aren’t even listening to me anymore, are you?)

Do you think that picking Xavier over Notre Dame was a bad idea?

(Editor’s Note: Yeah, I didn’t think so. Just try to appeal to a larger audience than just bonehead sports fans, okay?)

Okay, whatever.

All day, I’ve set here staring at my computer as I wait for the latest score to come through. “CanKansas State maintain their lead over Southern Miss?” I thought. I chewed my nails to a nub waiting for the result, eyes glued to the computer like a crazy man.

(Editor’s Note: Say something that will entertain non-sports fans.)

The game was as exciting as Kim Kardashian and Adele hanging out with this puppy.

(Editor’s Note: What in the name of all that is good and holy was that?)

You said to do something that non-sports fans would like. Everyone likes Kim Kardashian, Adele and puppies.

(Editor’s Note: Not everyone likes those things. I don’t really care for Adele.)

Wait, you DON’T like Adele?

(Editor’s Note: No. Maybe her song was just over played. She’s very talented and everything, but… Wait a minute! Why are we talking about this? I was trying to help you write a post that wasn’t completely horrible.)

You’re right.

As I was saying, I had chewed my nails to a nub. Finally, the screen… you know what? I’m not really into this idea anymore. It really is kind of boring.

(Editor’s Note: I told you! I don’t know why you never listen to me!)

Yeah, whatever. You were right. Are you happy now?

(Editor’s Note: I guess so. Maybe next time you’ll listen to me.)



(Editor’s Note: Uh… did you just walk off without finishing this post?)



(Editor’s Note: Amateur.)

  1. I was going to fill out brackets, place bets, and follow every second of every game, but then I realized that would mean I have even less of a life than I thought; so, I reorganized my Pokemon collection, instead.
