How To Win The Office March Madness Pool And Influence People

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Tue, Mar 17, 2009 at 3:39 PM

I'm sure you've heard this before, but it can actually help your odds in the office Final Four pool if you have absolutely no idea about basketball. Feel embarrassed by your lack of hoops knowledge? This exchange from yesterday might help:

Press Time: Are you going to do a bracket for March Madness?

Intern: I don't know. Did Akron win its last game?

Press Time: (Did not know that Akron had a team)

With that in mind, we provide today's survey question, along with two of the four possible answers. Go take the full survey.

Offices across the country are dipping their toes into college basketball betting pools this weekend. What’s the best way for those of us with no knowledge of basketball to pick the winners?

B. Copy off the guy in the office who drinks O’Douls — he’s the only one who clearly remembers the games.

C. Pick the teams with an animal as a mascot — if two teams both have animals, go with the animal that hasn’t been in a Pixar movie.
