So, I just set up this year's (non-monetary) basketball pool and sent out the invites to the usual suspects. If you didn't receive an invite and you'd like to participate, just send me an email and I'll add you to the list. The more trash talkers the better, right? Too be honest, I'm usually the only trash talker. The rest of my friends/family are much nicer than I am and steadfastly REFUSE to be baited. I hate that. Those a-holes take the fun out of everything!
Last year I almost won someone else's monetary pool, by virtue of being the only person to have picked OSU to win it. I couldn't fathom them losing two major championships in one year - to the same university no less. Even though I am also a Gator fan. Good thing I have my Government Bribe money this year so I will be saved the disappointment of not winning 500 bones again. I have such a hard life.
