In my opinion – please keep in mind that this is the opinion of a sports lover – March Madness is one of the best times of the year. There’s nothing quite like the NCAA tournament. You have 64 65 teams competing for one championship. It’s one game at a time. You lose, you’re done. You win, you survive. And a lot of times, it’s all about surviving.
I just got home from watching the last game tonight, which was USC (a 5 seed) vs. Arkansas (a 12 seed). It had all the makings of an upset, but the cards weren’t right tonight. Arkansas lost by 17 points, and provided more fodder to support the fact that they didn’t deserve to be in the tournament at all. I agreed with most critics, but was happy that they had a chance. Unfortunately, the typical Stan Heath-coached team showed up tonight, leaving Arkansas fans without yet another NCAA tournament win. I’m becoming tired of saying, “next year.”
The game wasn’t a great game to watch. In fact, it wasn’t even a fun game to watch... at all. It reminded me of the upcoming Bad Movie Nights this summer. Which reminded me of some of the bad movies I’ve seen over the past two years. Which reminded me that RottenTomatoes.com recently published their list of the 100 worst rated movies. What’s sad, I’ve seen at least seven of them... by choice:
Bad game. Bad movies. And tomorrow there’s a high chance that I witness many bad things during Saint Patrick’s Day and the annual Kansas City parade that occurs just one block from my loft. Yes, it could be a very long day.
