I’m not super into sports, but for some reason I absolutely love March Madness! I love filling out brackets (this year I made 5), I love how you can watch all the games for free online or on a tablet (NBA should consider this) and I love the crazy upsets!
Like everyone in the nation except for this guy, none of my 5 brackets are perfect. But in one of my bracket pools, one with a potential prize of $30 worth of gift cards, I am doing fairly well. I picked Mercer to beat Duke. I picked Harvard to beat Cincinnati. I also picked SFA to beat VCU. And that SFA game got me the most excited I’ve ever been at a sporting event. Basically, I was at the point with one other person in my bracket that if SFA won then I’d take a dominant lead and if they lost I would go down in the ranks and it would be hard to come back from it.
The game started of good and SFA went into the half with a 6 point lead. I was feeling good! Then during the second half they just could not get it together. I was actually getting upset! I saw my bracket going to shambles and the prize slipping from my grasp. Then, when VCU fouled SFA on a buzzer beater 3 point shot AND THEY MADE IT I JUMPED OUT OF MY SEAT! I could not believe it! It was so exciting! Then they ended up winning in OT and I was screaming! I have never felt this way about a sporting event in my life. It was crazy! It was madness! March Madness!
