The dance card has been filled and now the party begins. I have said it before, and I will say it again: March Madness is the greatest three weeks for sports fans.
The feeling of holding that gold trophy is so special as 68 teams start play in an effort to cut down the nets in New Orleans. Hoops hysteria will take over our nation as fans jump on a bandwagon of their favorite team. Yes my friends, hoops fever will run wild.
You can talk about the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA playoffs, BCS and Stanley Cup playoffs, but for three weeks, the spirit that grabs the nation is uncontrollable passion. Get the sweatshirts out, get the cheering outfits together, scream loud and clear, root, root, root for your favorite!
My feeling is, when it is all said and done, there will be joy and jubilation in Big Blue Nation. In looking over the draw, I like John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats to bring back the gold trophy to Lexington.
