Sure, you can wait for March Madness to come around again. Or you can visit Bracket Smackdown and get a whole new office pool going today.
Built in support of a book called The Final Four of Everything, the site lets you create, customize, and share any number of bracket templates: Pit the world’s superheroes against one another (any way you slice it, Aquaman has trouble in the very first round). Have women named Mary duke it out (Mary Martin vs. Mary J. Blige could go either way, depending on your DOB). Force children’s books to claw their way into your heart (with eight titles on our bracket, Dr. Seuss is the closest thing to a lock). In a showdown of fun websites, Bracket Smackdown would easily make our Sweet Sixteen.
