Does wearing a Packers jersey count as proper St. Patrick's Day garb in Chicago? Discuss among yourselves.
1. What do you call the day after Selection Sunday?
|Megan Crepeau: Mother[bleeping] March Madness Monday.|
|Pete McMurray: O'Bracketology Monday! Green beer and brackets! Doesn't get any better, unless Sabrina from the office wants to get busy!|
|Sarah Spain: Mope Monday -- a Northwestern tradition since 1939.|
|Elliott Serrano: I Can't Believe I Drank That Much Green Beer Monday.|
|Emily Brown: Mayhem Monday. Everyone’s in such a rush to finish their bracket, the internet may come crashing down.|
2. How many brackets is the right amount to fill out?
|Megan Crepeau: Be an adult. Take pride in your choices: Pick one and stick with it.|
|Pete McMurray: You can't have enough enough brackets! Does Lady Gaga have enough pairs of shoes? I think NOT!|
|Sarah Spain: However many it takes to win Buffett's Billion-Dollar bracket.|
|Elliott Serrano: Equal to the number of green beers as I drank this weekend. Not sure how many but I kept hearing "just one more."|
|Emily Brown: Just one. Get it right the first time.|
3. St. Patrick's Day is to Chicago sports as ...
|Megan Crepeau: ... [vomits all over Clark Street].|
|Pete McMurray: ... Irish whiskey is to Beverly residents. Mother's milk, my friends. May the road rise to greet you when you pass out cold.|
|Sarah Spain: St. Patrick's Day has temporarily rendered me incapable of answering tricky analogy questions.|
|Elliott Serrano: ... drinking green beer is to hanging out in downtown Chicago. You couldn't have one without the other.|
|Emily Brown: Nothing. Once a year everything’s green and everyone is Irish for a day. What can compare?|
4. What's Julius Peppers' first order of business as a Green Bay Packer?
|Megan Crepeau: Get some cheese to go with that Peppers.|
|Pete McMurray: Get that money in a bank account ASAP! Then, see if that beat-up body can can fake it for another season or two.|
|Sarah Spain: Cash his paycheck. (Second order of business: Coast.)|
|Elliott Serrano: Getting his jersey sized? That disgusting green jersey. I never want to see anything green again. Ever.|
|Emily Brown: Hide all evidence of his Bears days. Those Packers fans are crazy.|
5. Which Bear is happiest Charles Tillman is back?
|Megan Crepeau: Martellus Bennett, because "The Black Unicorn and Peanut" sounds like the crime-fighting duo this town deserves.|
|Pete McMurray: Boo Bear? How about Yogi Bear? Papa Bear? What about Honey Bear? Bear essentials? Regardless ... BEAR DOWN!|
|Sarah Spain: Charles Tillman.|
|Elliott Serrano: Mrs. Tillman. Now shut up and let me sleep off this hangover.|
|Emily Brown: Tim Jennings. He needs his wingman.|
