Help me name a new national holiday!
As we all know, +NCAA March Madness
basketball and the brackets and pools thereof can consume a workplace, especially at the beginning of the tournament.
I'm part of a small but (hopefully) growing group that takes a vacation day on the first Friday of March Madness to watch games at a sports bar from opening tip-off at around noon to the closing buzzer late that night.
But should I have to take a vacation day? I think not. Clearly, this should be a national holiday so everyone can enjoy the day and so we can stop reading the annual articles about how the masses are killing American productivity with an excess of bracket sheet comparisons and online score-watching.
But what to call it? That's the question.
March Madness Day?
National Bracketology Day?
The Richmond Spiders or Some Other School You've Never Heard of Ruins Your Pool Day?
Open to suggestions...
(And if you're in NJ, join us at O'Reillys in Maplewood on March 22!)
