Assunto:  Re: march madness pool ??? what's this...
 
Mensagem:  March Madness is the locura that comes in March. Make sense?

Of course not. So, you need to visit: http://www.ncaasports.com/

where you will see all of the basketball games scheduled for college players.....both men and women.....which will lead to the National Collegiate Association Championships.

The whole place goes crazy with basketball!! In homes, offices, factories and even on the battlefields in the Middle East Americans are rooting for their favorite teams. In some places they actually place bets with money.

An office pool is made up of people from an office. The word used for this type of betting arrangement in Brazil is a "vaca" (make sense now?).
