Score! PA Senator pushing to legalize March Madness at work.

marchmadness.pngWill office pools be legal in Pennsylvania this year? One State Senator is trying to make it so. 

Jealous, New Mexico? Yeah, you’re jealous.

Details after the jump…

Philly.com reports here that Pennsylvania State Sen. Lisa M. Boscola will introduce legislation to make small office pools legal in the Keystone State.

Under the Boscola proposal, betting pools would be legal if:

  • the entry amount is $20 or less;
  • there are no more than 100 participants;
  • there is an established social, professional or familial relationship between contestants; and
  • all pool proceeds are awarded to the contestants or donated to a charity.

“March Madness and Super Bowl pools have been traditional activities in offices, social clubs, corner taverns and family living rooms for years,” Boscola said. “My legislation merely legitimizes an activity that most people already rightly assume is legitimate.”

Never mind that the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament started yesterday, ’cause, you know, it’s the thought that counts…

I’ll leave you; not with this — too cliche. But, rather, let’s go with this. It’s last year’s PAC-10 Conference Final. Turn the volume up to 11. Shake. Crossover. Step back…Cold blooded! We’ll miss you this year, Gus Johnson.
