Let the Madness Begin...
This is my most cherished time of the year!
YES, it’s spring, and the weather is becoming balmy as well as the outer appearance of the Earth is fully clad in her buds, blossoms and blooms. Once again, the planet fills our senses with her fragrant aromas and pleasing aesthetics.
Furthermore, the calendar reveals my favored celebration; Easter is swiftly approaching.
But what is most prominent about this time of year is of course, the National Championship Basketball Tournament!!!
Let the madness begin!!!
I love, love, LOVE basketball and I am devoted to the competition as well as the idea that most of the nation stops and takes notice. I get a charge out of the heckling and first-rate joking we bestow to others as a result of their choice of favored teams because well, let’s face it, we all have allegiances and the event ties us all together with one clear winner.
Granted, my beloved Tar Heels have gotten lucky on a number of occasions however, this is a time when basket ball reflects life and I root for the underdog, well unless it is Carolina or Ohio State!
Of course, we fill in brackets…my son has completed numerous brackets in any combination he can come up with because well, we have a little bet going within our family! The heck with the big riches as a trophy; the winner in our home has bragging rights for the entire year AND the honors of planning a Week-End Getaway of our own choosing!!
How fun is that!?
I hope I win, I hope I win…
