NCAA bracket poll: How obsessed are you?

Let’s be really honest with each other, OK?  How much time to you spend with your NCAA bracket?

Most of us fill out a bracket, but what I really want to know is whether your bracket becomes a full obsession. Are you one of those who reads everything you can on every, single team, painstakingly pencils in your bracket and then watches and worries online and on TV throughout the week to see how you’re doing?

Does work take a backseat? Do you ignore significant others, kids and pets? Do you lose sleep? Does your mood swings depend on how your bracket looks?

Do you need professional help, and we’re not talking about a Doctor of Bracketology.

Or are you a basketball fan who avoids even doing a bracket, for whatever reason.

Or are you somewhere between those two extremes?

Take our poll and let us know where you fit.
