Why March Madness is the Best!
The excitement, the drama, the buzzer beaters, the Cinderellas, One Shining Moment, I could probably use a hundred different adjectives to describe the magic of the NCAA Tournament and March Madness as a whole. As we finish up the first weekend of the tourney, I wanted to really quickly write why there's nothing like March Madness.
I love the unpredictability of not knowing who will make it to the second round, the Sweet 16, the Elite 8 and so on.
I love upsets.
I love filling out A bracket (don't be that person that fills out multiple brackets) and seeing it either do okay or getting to burn it.
I love the excitement of being at team's selection show parties and seeing their reactions when their names pops up on the screen.
I love the CBS College Basketball Theme.
I love One Shining Moment.
I love watching basketball ALL DAY LONG during the first and second rounds.
I love the atmosphere of the arena whenever I get the chance to follow a team to the Big Dance (this is the first year in a while I haven't been able to travel to cover a team in the tourney and I'm bummed to be honest).
I love the fun of being in a team's locker room after a tournament win.
I love seeing kids lay it on the line.
I love the dedication of fans who traveled hundreds...even thousands...of miles to watch their team in person.
I love...EVERYTHING ABOUT MARCH MADNESS!!!!
