The March Madness tournament has finally started, and college basketball has never been more exciting. It's the time of year when underdog teams beat the national powerhouse, and lesser-known players make a name for themselves. The month of March is always the month of limbo between the new year, and summertime. It seems to drag on as we await summer, but March Madness helps reduce this. Every night after school, work, sporting events,etc we can go home knowing that eating some food and watching some basketball is always possible. Nothing is more relaxing than watching some competitive college basketball, and it makes life all the more enjoyable.
Some people complain about the college basketball tournament, saying that they couldn't care less about it, or that they know nothing about college basketball. Although this may make watching the games a bit interesting, it gives people a reason to always be hanging out and watching the game with their friends. Watching teams like Virginia Commonwealth University upset big number one and two teams, is all part of the experience. No one wants to see the powerhouse team destroy everyone in their path, but rather see hard-fought games won by the unexpected cinderella team. March Madness is a beloved time to watch college basketball, and to enjoy the skill of the many collegiate athletes before they become pompous and enter into the NBA.
