One Shining Moment Tue, Mar 01, 2016
Let's not overlook the fact that the cosmos aligned to make this year, the first February I've been a SlideBelts employee, a leap year, so that my loop post writing will fall on Tuesday, March 1st - the first day of the greatest sporting month of the year. Serendipitous, you might say...
If you aren't an avid college basketball fan, March is the month of March Madness - college basketball's win-or-go-home tournament to determine the year's national champion. Prepare for a month of office trash talk (oh, that's just me? Okay, then...), Cassidy wearing an obnoxious amount of Kentucky blue, bracketology arguments, and, of course, hearing Future's March Madness song nonstop on the radio over the next 31 days.
That magical time of year is upon us and, with no true GREAT teams in college basketball, this year might be the craziest tournament ever. If there's any year to tune out Joe Lunardi (aka Joey Brackets), this is it. So as you prepare to fill out your 2016 SlideBelts March Madness bracket, start researching your favorite cinderella teams (Monmouth?), your favorite mascots (banana slugs?) and your favorite team colors (Kentucky blue), because all of these will likely be more effective than breaking down RPI, seeding or offensive/defensive efficiency.
Selection Sunday is officially just 11 days away, One Shining Moment is already on repeat on my iPod and the greatest 3 weeks in sports is almost here. GO CATS!!!
