CBS analysts not knowing when Connecticut has taken the lead.
The name Gyno Pomare.
Siena SHLADESTROYBLOWINGOUT Vanderbilt.
and Western Kentucky.
All ample reason to stop what you're doing, turn on CBS, and get in on it. What's not to love about March Madness, anyway? Besides New Year's Eve, the first two days of March Madness are the only two days of the year that half of the nation is up past Midnight.
No, you're bracket's not doing well. Mine, too. But suck it up, and carpe diem. Because this is the only time of year when you're gonna care what the hell happens in a University of San Diego game. It's the only time of year that you and Dick Vitale will both be up past 9:00 on a weeknight. It's the only time of year that you'll consider punching out that guy who thinks picking the 9 seed to be the 8 seed is "ingenious!"
No, you don't like that Vanderbilt coach whose name escapes you. I don't either. But you don't have to like the coaches, heck, you don't even have to like the players (!), you just gotta love the insanity.
Stay awake. Stay alert. Stay enthusiastic. Keep blinking to a minimum. You don't want to be missing that buzzer beating bucket from behind the arc as time in OT expires. (Say that 65 times fast).
So your team was bounced early. (Yeah, we know your eyes aren't watering because you lost an eyelash or your contacts are itchy). You'll make it out, you UConn fan, you. Now, you can get completely caught up-no restrictions. You can root, and root HARD for that 13 seed to topple that 4 seed, no longer do you have to worry about how the end result on this game will have repercussions on your boys.
So stop reading this blog, turn on the telly, and get back in on the Mad Month of March.
