Selection Sunday® is still a few days away, but college basketball fever is starting to sweep the office. Are you ready to take the plunge? Throw together some of your favorite party food dishes and then spend Sunday night making your best predictions. You could try some of the creative strategies in “10 ways to fill out your NCAA Tournament Bracket” or you could follow my time-honored tradition of picking by mascot. (Surprisingly unsuccessful, but at least I’m consistent.) You can also just follow along at the official NCAA® bracket.

If you’re hoping for some inspiration, look no further than famed UCLA coach John Wooden. In the video below, he talks about his famous Pyramid of Success. He defines success as “peace of mind attained only through self-satisfaction in knowing you did the best of which you’re capable.” Coach Wooden added, “You’re the only one who knows your character.” Win or lose, I’m wishing all the players a lot of success during the tournament.
