After day 1 of the NCAA basketball tournament most of us are getting beat by a 12 year old. Offical Only Son of EnvEcon (OOSEE) is tied with 3 others getting 14 out of 16 right. In the EnvEcon Founders challenge (me v John), I have a slight lead with 13 right to John's 11.
Funny-in-a-sad-way story: Yesterday afternoon, during the Ohio State-Dayton game, I was teaching. During most of the game I was teaching a principles of micro class to an honors section. At their request (they probably wouldn't have shown up otherwise) I gave periodic score updates. The game ended during my 20 minute break between that class and my PhD Applied Econometrics class. For some reason, yesterday, a significant portion of the 32 PhD students in that class were late arriving. I made a joke to the 20 or so of those who showed up on time: "I guess they were too depressed over the outcome of the game to get here on time."
The universal response was "What game?"*
*After explaining that OSU just finished playing, a few students asked "What sport is that?"
