March Madness

March Madness is, in my opinion, the greatest sporting event in the world. Go ahead and try to argue with me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love sports. Football is my favorite, both college and the NFL, and the playoffs and Superbowl are a must watch. There is the World Cup, rugby of course, but soccer is ok too. You can’t forget the Olympics, which have a history unlike anything else. But…nothing compares to the NCAA basketball tournament that we fondly refer to as March Madness.

Each year we get to watch the stories unfold as the titans of the sport live up to the lofty expectations set for them. Or we cheer on some small schools trying to make an improbable run. The different players who step into the national spotlight. Amazing, heroic performances, nail biting finishes that leave your heart racing. Stunning endings that leave you dumbfounded.
