Well, it’s back.
That wild and crazy time of the sports year has returned with a fresh selection of 68 college basketball teams set to duke it out (pun somewhat intended) for the glory of being national champions.
It feels a little different this year with the pandemic still hanging around. It’s hard to really get into it as much as in years past because there have been so many distractions in the past 12 months.
This time last year all lovers of college basketball were still reeling from the news that there would be no college basketball tournament. The season had abruptly and unceremoniously ended.
This year, they’re back. Even if it’s not quite as festive an occasion as in years past, this is still the March Madness we’ve all been waiting for. So today I did my civic duty and filled out my brackets for the Tournament Challenge.
Will I win? Probably not. Still I keep holding out hope that my amazing intellect — or more likely sheer dumb luck — will lead me to have a winning bracket. Even so, I’d rather see a lot of upsets and see another Cinderella team knock off a few national powerhouses. I always seeing a little David school taking down a Goliath.
I’ve cut back this time. So far, I’ve only filled out a measly 6 brackets. If I’m still feeling lucky, I might add one or two more.
If you’re like me, you’ve got your fingers crossed and hoping for the best for your brackets. May the odds be ever in your favor.
