For newfriends of mine that get to experience my behavior in the month of March, it can be quite upsetting. A pretty normal guy who works alot and doesn’t sit in front of the tube too much, suddenly becomes a work skipping, couchpotato.
It’s all about the basketball. I can’t explain quite why I love it, but I find no other sporting event quite so compelling as the NCAA College basketball tournament, aka “March Madness”. It doesn’t hurt that my favorite team, the Kentucky Wildcats, are on a run into tournment time and look to be getting ready to seed well. Hopefully they can repeat the run they had in ’98 which gave coach Smith his first NCAA title.
