Top 3 Things: Unusual pools Edition

As previously stated, this is my first year getting involved in all this March Madness. In years before, I just tried to survive this time of the year due to my extreme lack of interest in sports. So I started to think about what March Madness would’ve been like if I was more creative and did something fun as an alternative to office pools based on sports brackets. Apparently, other’s have actually done this.


So here a few unusual office pools that are real life:


#3 Bet on who could raise the best-looking Chia Pet. That’s legit. I could definitely get into that.


#2 Bet on when a coworker would be fired. 

I know, JT. This one is a tad cruel. Can you imagine when that person get’s let go and someone stands up and cheers because they just won the pool of money? 


#1 Bet on when a coworker would change his shirt, which he wore for 11 consecutive days.  First of all, in regard to wearing a single shirt for that long…

Second, people probably didn’t mind that they lost that pool. At least the office would smell a little better. 


What’s the oddest office pool you’ve been involved in?

A majority of my growing up years were spent in Wanamaker, a small town just barely inside Franklin Township. Two of my neighbors were corn fields so my two sisters, younger brother, and I got into lots of trouble. I'm a proud Greyhound and graduate from the University of Indianapolis. I've worked for a few other stations throughout Indianapolis, collected a few awards along the way, and here I am! When I'm not at work, you can assume I'm with my family, reading a comic book, consuming too much TV and movies for one single person, trying to find time to volunteer, or snuggling one of my five pets (3 cats, 2 dogs.
