How to win your awards show office pool

For the second year in a row, I was the office pool champion for the Emmys. Some of my co-workers claim I cheated. 

Don’t listen to them. Instead, listen to me, because I have the key to winning awards show office pools.

When the pool sheets are passed out, the first thing I do is search the Internet for awards that have already been announced. Getting all of those correct gives me a nice cushion while everyone else is guessing if “iCarly” was better than “Sesame Street” in children’s programming.

Then, I look for blogs that handicap the other categories in hopes getting an idea of who will win. This is important because I watch few television series. I’ve barely heard of the actors and shows, let alone know enough to analyze who will get the statues.

This year, I had 16 correct picks. The runner-up had six. My co-workers call it cheating. I call it research.
If there was a prize involved, I’d be laughing all the way to the bank.
