Let the Madness Begin *Sports from a Girl's POV*

So its March Madness time in NCAA Basketball (that's college basketball for those of you living under a rock or in another country)

This is probably the only major sports event that I do not watch nor follow, except for soccer (which technically should not count). I don't have any great predictions which is why you won't find me participating in any brackets. I guess I am rooting for Syracuse because that is who my boyfriend, the typical crazy sports enthusiast has picked.

I listen to Kevin & Bean on KROQ (a Los Angeles and surrounding areas radio station). Today they had Matt "Money" Smith on who is a predominant sports enthusiast/radio show host. He gave his "cliff notes" version of the key teams to watch and why. I have provided a few of these to you in case that you want to sound semi-knowledgeable about March Madness.

Kentucky: "Has all the athletes"
Syracuse: "Senior leadership in the guard position"
Big Ten: "Underrated but they make great coaching decisions"

That is my poor attempt at providing you with some sports knowledge. I think it can help you impress others or give them a false idea that you know what you are talking about when it comes to the tournament. If you actually do know what's going on in this crazy thing called March Madness then more power to you.

By the way, how did everyone's St. Patty's day go? I was lame and stayed home drinking wine and watching Degrassi.



  1. At my old office, we did March madness brackets and it was really fun! Typically the peeps who didn't follow basketball at all were the winners. :)

  2. Dammit Hunny! Syracuse has the Boheim system named after their coach. Kansas has senior leadership at the guard position. =)

  3. I picked Kentucky to go all the way! My husband and I like to do brackets and make a friendly competition out of it. I still don't watch the games though--I just check my brackets to see what my score is and compare it to the hubs. :)

  4. Rosemary: yah thats awesome. This year at work we had a ridiculous NFL pool. It was crazy as it was for the WHOLE season.

    Kevin: Im sorry:( I should have had you check it... AWww shucks

    Karrie: Yah me and my boyfriend do a competition for NFL. Its a lot of fun:)
