Brackets, brackets, brackets! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh! What an exciting time of the year we have entered again. If you have been living under a rock I will tell you now that it is time for March Madness. Which actually runs into April but who cares this is America and we can do things like that! I can remember being a kid in elementary school getting excited for the NCAA basketball tournament. I don’t know anyone who does not at least know what it is. In fact I don’t know too many people that have never filled out a bracket (My sports hating wife has even filled one out).
I think a lot of the excitement has mostly to do with predicting the outcome of this massive tournament. It is a very unique event in that sense. Just about anyone whether they follow the sport of college basketball or not can give it a try. Countless office pools and friendly wagers dominate this month long period of sport. Bragging rights are definitely on the line. I have already filled out two.
The other great thing is that it provides a ton of entertainment almost dominating the late part of the week into Sunday for the first two weeks then reigning over the last 2 weekends. The powerhouse teams versus the underdog, legendary programs versus legendary programs, you will be hard pressed to find a boring game. The unpredictability is also a great part of this event you never know who will be upset. You have got to be a part of it! If you can’t feel all of the excitement check your pulse and if you are still alive fill out a bracket already!
