Performance of Sports: Bracketology

That time of year is upon us again. In high school I saw people hiding phones under their desks to watch. During lunch period the TVs in the cafeteria were on multiple channels showing it. When I worked in an office setting during my undergrad years we were allowed to have it on our computers occasionally as long as we had the sound off and closed it if a customer called. Yes folks, I’m talking about the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, otherwise known as March Madness.

Performance of Sports: The Super Bowl

For many Americans it is the biggest sports day of the year. My aunt even calls it Football Christmas. You guessed it, I’m talking about the Super Bowl. Every year on the first Sunday of February people from all walks of life gather to watch the Super Bowl. Some come for the game (since that is the main event), some come for the musical performance(s), some come for the commercials, and some come for the food. Depending on who is playing and who is performing at half time that year, I am some combination of all four.
