Donut money

Today I'm celebrating my 10th anniversary at Kalmbach.

It's also the 10th anniversary of my March Madness experience. Every spring, I've considered the fates of my favorite teams (and many of my not-so-favorites, too). I did my bracket alone this year, as I didn't have the foresight to check in with my friend Dave, who's a savant about college hoops.

Neither the risk nor the payoff is large — perfect for a conservative person like me. This year, my picks netted me a third-place finish (out of 57 people!).

I spent my $14.25 on Long Johns, crullers, and other deep-fried delights.

Ten years is a long time. But even as the people, the magazine, and the technology have changed, one thing has endured: our love of donuts. Cheers to the past decade, and to my co-workers who keep the tradition alive.
