I hate watching sports on TV—especially basketball. It might have started back when I was a kid and my dad taped over all my favorite movies with Chicago Bulls games. (Imagine my diasppointment when I’d pop Aladdin, Mary Poppins, or The Sound of Music into the VCR only to catch Michael Jordan and Scotty Pippin dunking and high-fiving.)
So you’ll understand that March Madness is so not my favorite time of year. People running around filling out brackets, betting hard-earned money, and trying to predict which set of rowdy college boys is going to beat which other set of rowdy college boys. But, to each their own.
This year, I’ve found a bracket I can get behind. The So Good Blog is hosting Meat Madness, a “tournament style 32 meat face-off.” For the next 25 days their community is going to be voting to select the supreme meat from 32 potential proteins hailing from both land and sea. Will Bacon beat Pork Chops? I’d bet my money on that. Chicken will mostly like sweep Pheasant. But, what about Sausage vs. Ribs? That’s a tough one. And can you really decide between Lobster and Clams?! My blood pressure is rising just thinking about it.
Who will be the named the champion? I don’t know, but I’m in.
