If you’ve been reading this blog for a few years you know that the Beavers family always fills out NCAA basketball brackets. We all do it differently, I just pick by name recognition and what I know of the team. Samuel and Stephen follow basketball and know what teams should win against what team.
David and Daniel researched the teams this year and made good, logical picks. It used to be that they just guessed. Anna is always the one we love to watch pick her bracket. I remember when she was two, Stephen sat her on his lap gave her the name of the two teams and she would say one of them. The last few years she picks according to these criteria, a) does she know someone that loves there? B) has she been to the city or state? C) the name of the school d) the mascot.
This year she asked about yousla, or UCLA. She calls it yousla and keeps asking if they’re winning. She cracks me up!
So far we’ve all been in first place, and the tourney just started Thursday. As I write this, I’m in third place, I don’t see myself winning. I never win.
So, tonight we’ll be watching basketball. I’m thinking about painting my nails and reading a book, a little basketball goes a long way when I’m not winning!
