March Madness

So, its not something I have talked about on here, but I am a HUGE sports fan. Growing up I had thoughts of becoming a sports broadcaster. I watch everything. My favourite team are the Canucks, and my favourite sport to watch is NFL, but the best thing in sports and one of my favourite times of year is the NCAA tournament. I am the oldest of 4 and have 3 younger brothers and we all look forward to the Madness. My picks are in and the first games are under way. I am serious about my bracketology but this year wasn't able to give it the same time and research. I am sure that will have an effect on my standings. Based on what's going on in the first few games, I may be out of luck from the start. Last year I was second but that's already looking like a longshot right now.

Even if you are not a big fan, being involved in a pool gives you a lot more ownership of the games and in general makes the tournament more exciting. We'll be away for the final week of the tournament and you can bet my inside downtime will be spent watching it on TV - as pretty much every spring break of my school career was.

I can pretty much get into any sport when it gets down to the finals or if there is a pool of money involved! The current round is taking place here in Portland so the town is buzzing, pretty cool. Go your team! :)

I don't even have a team yet! I generally get one as I watch them play.
