Going Concern March Madness: Busy Season Survival Has a Champion (And Some of You May Need a Sponsor)

Bracket season came to close yesterday afternoon on Going Concern and your Busy Season Survival champion is none other than booze. Hooch. The Sauce. Firewater. Whatever your flavor, alcohol managed to overcome it all to win GCBSSF&BvsT.

Yes, those of you who cry busy season tears into beers managed to outnumber the BYU alums, CPAs in recovery, and Excel nerds with too much time on their handsYou've all survived (?) busy season in your own way, but we now know that you find comfort by taking the edge off. And there's definitely nothing wrong with that, just so long as you're responsible. But not this kind of responsible.

Anyway, I'd toast you all to another busy season conquered1 but lots of you are way ahead of me. Cheers.

1 Yes, I know some of you have five days left. Just file the extension and move on.
