This is one of the best times of the year in sports. The NCAA Tournament bracket is officially set and in the next several weeks, we’ll be watching some up and down basketball.
For me, basketball was my first passion when it came to sports. It was the first sport I learned how to play and to this very day, it’s still a fun game for me to watch. The NBA has diluted its product and it’s been tough recently. But whenever March comes around, I can always rely on the college game to bring me back to why I love this sport.
Set up in the best playoff system of any sport, we get a dance of 68 different schools with a hope of becoming champion. The single elimination system makes each and every basket so critical. Teams game plan and do whatever it takes just to get to the next round.
The tournament has provided so many great moments and upsets. Even the moment above still brings chills to me. What a fantastic finish to a great game. I’m going to enjoy watching the tournament. I may not know much about most of the teams, but I don’t care. I just love March Madness basketball.
I have started up this free public pick ’em group for anyone who is interested. I want to see how my followers/readers see the brackets unfolding. I would love for you all to join. I might even send the winner a prize too.
