Nothing revs my engine like a good old fashioned bracket.  A couple years ago, I compiled a list of 64 things I hate the most in this world, matched them up and chose what I hated the most.  I believe the first winner of “Hate Madness” as I referred to it was roadwork.

Over the next week or so, Hate Madness will be coming back, premiering for the first tome on Water Cooler Sports.  So take this blog as a heads up for what is about to come.  The other thing I’ll do is tell you the rules so that when this whole thing gets going in the next day or two, I can just go into it.

The Rules:

  • There will be four brackets: Sports, Types of People, Everyday Life and Miscellaneous
  • I feel it is necessary to make the point that the Types of People category is NOT race, orientation, religion, etc., but instead things like “Extremists,” “Music Gurus,” “Tough Guys” and other things of that nature.  Maybe I’ll think of another name for that bracket.
  • There will be 16 items in each bracket that I will seed 1-16.
  • They will match up.  The first round I’ll introduce why this particular item made the big dance and then declare a winner.  After the first round it will just be who wins the match-up and why.

And that’s basically it.  I reserve the right to change any and all rules if I feel like, but for the most part, that’s it.  Just get ready, it’s coming.

Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!
