I'M GOING TO THE NCAA MEN'S BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D
I’ll be in the next to last row on the second tier of seats at Nationwide Arena, but no worries- I’ll be the loudest, most vibrant, and most excited one there! I’ve got all of my fan gear for the matchups: Maryland vs West Virginia and Oklahoma vs Dayton. As you can tell, I may or may not have decided who I will be supporting in the Maryland/WV game (or the Oklahoma vs Dayton game... I mean, who doesn't love the underdog practically at home there?). I had to order my shirts last Sunday night in the hopes they’d make it here in time without knowing who would be playing! They all made it though, and I have a couple of great problems to have now.
I’ve been looking forward to going to the NCAA tournament pretty much my entire life. I can’t even remember a time when I didn’t watch college basketball on tv. I’ve never been to a full game live except my games at UK and Vandy- which, while they were excellent basketball, I didn’t exactly have a seat. I had to stand all game, lol. Though I have a feeling I’ll be doing that here too! :)
Wish my mom and I luck as we brave the crowds! If you happen to be watching, and they pan the cameras really, really high up, squint as you see us wave at you! ;)
PS- Enjoy a song I actually picked up from watching basketball last week on ESPN- yes, really. ;) I know it seems like the farthest style from sports, but they make it work pretty well!
