March Madness is Awesome!

Tyler Zeller with the winning shot!  UNC 61 Miami 59
I seriously love basketball.  I seriously love UNC basketball.  Today's game was a heart attack kind of game, but I LOVED it. Too bad I was home with just the little girls who could care less and one was napping so I even had to be quiet.

I'm sure anybody from North Carolina can attest to the fact that as a kid they watched the ACC tournament at school.  In high school I remember rushing from one class to the next so I wouldn't miss something great happening in the game.  Basketball is serious business in NC. 

For the next few weeks I'll be buried in basketball.  Greg and I usually do a little home pool - sometimes we have a prize for the winner or something the loser is forced to do (unsavory chores or something like that) but more often it's just bragging rights. 

As a former SDSU employee, I'd love to see the Aztecs do well.  Greg is a Boilermaker, so we'll be cheering for Purdue, too.  But in the end, I don't want any of them to win more than UNC.  I try to be practical with my brackets, but emotion creeps in.  It's hard to choose against the Tarheels and it's even harder to choose Dook to win anything.  

Go Heels!

  1. I was never into basketball until now with the Aztecs kicking butt. Not it's all about March Madness. Exciting times at SDSU!
