March Madness: The Rematch

March 14, 2012

For those of you who didn’t read my last March Madness post, last year my wife, Jackie, and I placed a little bet on the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. The winner was given the option of choosing the location for our next dinner date.

In case you didn’t know, my wife and I differ greatly when it comes to our opinions on what constitutes a good dining experience. Jackie prefers places with good food. You know, the kind of place where your drink is in a glass made of glass and the napkins aren’t made of paper (Weird, huh?). I, on the other hand, am a slave to the almighty chain restaurants. I’ve gotten a little better in the last couple of years, but most of what I eat is pretty basic. My food palette just hasn’t really advanced much since 3rd grade.

So I’m sure you’re wondering who won last year. Well, when the smoked cleared, I alone danced the victory dance and merrily trotted with my reluctant wife to the majestic splendor that was Old Country Buffet.

But now it’s 2012, I’m looking to defend my title and Jackie is looking for redemption. Both of us did our part by not paying any attention to college basketball until last Sunday, so let’s see what happens.

Not sure where we’ll go this year if I win, but it’s been months since I’ve been to Red Robin.
