Some people love the Superbowl...some the World Series...some the Stanley Cup...but for me, my favorite sporting event of the year is March Madness. I wait all year for it to come around. I love basketball and March Madness gives me great basketball at the college level...where the players have lots of heart and little ego.
But it also gives me gambling and competition...two other things I love...in the form of the March Madness pool. I've been in the same pool for years and my invitation for this year was in my inbox this morning. It put a huge smile on my face...and even though it's too early to pick teams...I logged in to the website and looked at my blank brackets. I also looked at my pathetic brackets from last year...when I finished practically in last place.
I'm patiently awaiting the March 11th team selections, so I can start doing my research and filling out my brackets. I have a feeling this will be my year...when I pick every game correctly and I win the pool.
And if not...well, at least I'll get a few weeks of great basketball!
