March Madness Has Arrived


The NCAA mens basketball tournament is one of my favorite sporting events of the year. The brackets were announced today and my UCLA Bruins have limped into the tournament losing two games in a row. Instead of getting the #1 seed in the West Bracket like they should have if they played up to their potential, they got dropped down to a two seed by the selection committee. In the whole scheme of things it's not that bad. They get to play Thursday up in Suck-ramento against that powerhouse(LOL) of Weber St. This is practically a home game for them. If they take care of business Thursday, they would play the winner of the Indiana/Gonzaga game. UCLA has a history with both those teams. They of course beat Gonzaga last year in the sweet sixteen with a late steal and basket by Jordan Farmar & Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. I'll be penciling in my brackets tomorrow. I think the Bruins can get to the Final Four again this year, but they can't afford anymore let downs against inferior teams. Let the games begin.

Oh I almost forgot to mention the Forty-Niners of Long Beach St. They also made the field of 65 by winning the Big West Conference Tournament. Props to them.
