Yesterday when Georgetown was completely throwing my bracket in the shitter, I had an epiphany of sorts. It seems that I was the victim of one of the seven deadly sins....Greed.
You see, when I took part of the multi-office NCAA Pool for this year, I really wanted to give it my best effort. I wanted to win, of course, but the truth is I just wanted to have a good showing since last year's effort was mediocre at best. In order to do this, I had to do some research and pick the teams which I thought were the best in the nation. One of those teams was the University of Florida. Hell, I even had them winning the whole thing.
After the first two rounds, I figured I was out of it. Even though my Final Four teams were still in it, I didn't think I had a realistic shot of winning. Then, after the Sweet 16 and Elite 8, it appeared I had the opportunity to win something in the nature of $600. This is where my demise began...
I found myself rooting for Florida. It was disgusting. I knew it was wrong and I willingly did it anyway.
So, please allow me to formally apologize for this travesty. Hopefully in the future I will be wise enough to deny the impulse of Greed and instead take the righteous path. I appreciate your support throughout this trying time. It's nice to be back.
Until next time kids.
