Who else is tired of this annual "March Madness?"..an affliction that's takes over most males for the entire month. You can't have a conversation, go out or even make ask questions about their favorite teams. I know there are women like the games as well, but they will talk and watch at the same time...
In Adelaide, South Australia we also have March Madness...but of a different kind. Our city is rather boring so the State Government decided to load March with every event imaginable. In March we have:
*The Adelaide Festival (arts) *Adelaide Fringe (comedy & avante garde arts) *Clipsal 500 - car racing similar to NASCAR but on a street track *Adelaide Cup horse racing (being held today) *Final games of the A-League Soccer and NBL Basketball *Start of the AFL australian rules football season
Then we have nothing for the rest of the year! And you thought you had it bad!!
I guess I'm wondering how men could be so fascinated with sports that they place too much importance on an event. I do understand this basketball tournaments and have watched it myself,but it's not life and death.
March Madness is about gambling and ego as much as it's about college basketball. Most guys I know don't even follow college basketball too closely during the regular season other than their favorite team. I mean, who has time to follow a few hundred different D1 teams? March Madness trims that field down to 65, and guys (along with plenty of gals) will attempt to show off their sports-predicting prowess with their brackets. With all the various pools these brackets are entered in, March Madness becomes a collection of private lotteries with some skill involved.
This is a time for gamblers like you said. I do a bracket every year, but don't put money on it and really don't care who wins. I just graduated college and didn't care for it then so I really don't care for it now. It seems to take up the entire month though haha
The Dance is mad, mad race to the NCAA Basketball Title and every team has a shot. There will be Giant Division I Teams seeded at the top of the tournament brackets like always, but Cinderella Teams will be hunting them down like that Hot Girl on Resident Evil....That's the fun part, predicting who will fall
Coach K has been running Duke Basketball flawlessly for more than thirty years and has been personally selected to defend the honor of United States Basketball in more than one occasion. He conducts interviews, after a win or a lost, with the same gentleman's dignity.
Personally, I feel that his greatest accomplishment to date is the fact that he has been able to remain friends with that sociopath, Bobby Knight for all these years.
Location. It's what separates Wichita State from the other guys. As Kansas' only urban-serving research state university, WSU can offer things the others can't. By combining a traditional college atmosphere with the endless possibilities of the state's biggest city, Wichita State is the only school in Kansas that can provide an educational experience that goes beyond the limits of a typical college town. Bottom line – because we're in Wichita, Kansas, Wichita State students have advantages other students don't. Period.
actually it did remind me of the Joe Theisman injury.....and Lawrence Taylor had about the same reaction as everyone around that Louisville kid. BGJ, science is amazing.....I'm sure that kid will be playing next year.
Hey, and don't forget about the women. There have been some exiting games, what with Louisville beating the favorite Baylor and Brittney Griner. Louisville women are in the Final Four, just like their men.
I like Notre Dame and Skylar Diggins. Also Kayla McBride who is from my neck of the woods.
So for me, I'm rooting for the Fighting Irish women and Syracuse and that zone in the men's.
Wow! You know, you're really getting old when guys that you used watch play and admired now seat on the stands watching THEIR! kids play. Congrantulations Mr Crossover, Tim Hardaway & Glen 'The Big Dog' Robinson on your family's sucess

The NBA lockout has now started, and it threatens the 2011-2012 season, but does anybody care? It seems to be an afterthought on the sports pages, with the NFL lockout getting far more attention. I know I won't care if...
