March Madness tips off today. You already knew that, since you skipped out on work and are sitting on the couch with a beer, your 2012 NCAA bracket and clothing you don't plan on changing until you have to go back to work next Monday morning.

You won't mind going back to the office if you end up doing well on your 2012 NCAA bracket pool. Sad news -- you won't do well. You never do well. It's not your fault, you just don't know how to work the pool. Honestly, choosing the correct teams has little to do with college basketball knowledge. There is much more that goes into it all.
