March Madness 3/20/13

    The NCAA basketball tournament starts with the full 64 team bracket tomorrow. March Madness as it is called is a great event and the NCAA does a great job of making it the event of spring sports wise. The other thing that goes on is people fill out their brackets. Yes everyone from that old lady down the hall in your apt building to the annoying guy at work who now thinks you and him have a good reason to talk now. It's crazy how many people fill out the brackets and will be watching at least some of the games. It's a great time of year to be a sports bar as well since a lot of people just seem to take some time off or at least long lunch breaks to watch games. The last few years I have not been as big of a fan watching all the games or even filling out my bracket. I thought for awhile this morning as too why I have not been as into it this year as I was in years past. It dawned on my that a big part of that is my college basketball team the Maryland Terrapins have not been good. They won a title in 2001 and it was awesome but then they started losing. Gary Williams has left the program, hell I was at the last NCAA tournament game they won in 2010 over in Spokane. So I guess maybe some of the Husky fans can feel me on this one but it's hard to as fired up when your team has not shot since they could not even make the tournament. No brackets for me this year but I hope to fired back up this time next year for a deep run into the NCAA's by Maryland. If your team is still going have fun and if you just like the tournament then have fun as well. With or with out a bracket I will still be watching.
