With photography the main topic of this blog you probably think I will talk about bracketing as a method of taking multiple photographs of the same scene to ensure at least one image has the correct exposure. Most weeks you would be correct, however we are in the four day window where many people across the United States are filling in their NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament brackets for fun, office pools or trips to Nevada. With the exception of those years when Christmas occurs in the middle of the week, this is probably one of the least productive weeks in the workplace.
As people are filling out their tournament brackets on paper or online, there will be a lot of questions and tough decisions for them to make. Some of the questions include where is Siena located and why are they in the tournament, how come South Alabama is playing in Birmingham if they are not a top four seed in their region, will George Mason be the same team of 2006 when they made it to the Final Four, why isn’t there this much excitement for the Frozen Four, and of course will Arizona beat West Virginia just to name a few. So get those pencils or the mouse ready and make those picks by Thursday, and if you were wondering I am thinking a west coast team will take the title this year which is not one of the picks of the many commentators breaking down the brackets. UCLA, Arizona… nope. Think the school where Jim Harbaugh is the football coach, and their mascot is a tree. Do you have a different thought on who will win?
Oh and in case you were wondering where Siena (Loudonville, N.Y.) or any other team is located, take a look at the following map.
