By now, many of you have joined an NCAA men’s basketball tournament pool. Some of you may have skipped a step by removing a few dollar bills from your purse or wallet and setting them on fire.
But if one bracket contest isn’t enough to calm your March Madness, the Navy has you covered:
Sixty-four ships and/or aircraft types. One winner. The rules appear simple: Navy folks will release photos of the combatants on their official Google Plus page, and the public can “plus-one” their favorite. The contestant with the most votes reaches the next round.
The winner gets bragging rights; if you’re looking for some high-level, big-money, sports-related contest, you’re probably in the wrong service.
Voting begins Thursday morning, a few hours before you crumple up your other March bracket in disgust.
Once again, SEABEEs are completely ignored. Not surprised. It’s just as well – they would cream the fleet in this like everything else.
A better contest might be to rethink the Navy slogan.
“Global Force for Good” is just freaking terrible.
Why is the USS Gonzalez missing from the brackets???
As a former SEABEE it is hard to compete,however don’t count us out.
Dumbest.Idea.Ever. ONE TEAM, ONE FIGHT. We’re all here for a reason.
