Bracketology's Dark Side: Kindergarten Betting Gone Wild

Jun 24, 2015

 Thousands of bags of Skittles said to be wagered

TOLEDO, OH (eTrueSports) - Administrators at Hadley Lane Elementary School in Toledo reacted forcefully today after discovering that hundreds of kindergarteners were involved in an NCAA men's basketball pool.  According to sources, "thousands of bags of Skittles" are involved. 

"Skittles are the new bitcoin," a law enforcement official  told eTrueSports.
"I'm sure we all like March Madness, but I'm sorry, five years of age is too young to be in an NCAA pool," said Dr. J. Everett Palmer, the Hadley Lane school's principal. "Bracketology is bad for kids and we're stopping it."
Anthony Fertitta, the colorful kindergartner who manages the pool, disagreed. " I'm putting some Skittle bags in my pocket and providing a popular service. What's bad?

"I've never felt more alive," added Fertitta before excusing himself for what he guessed would be his "last nap for a long time."
