Ok, I love this time of year. Not only are we saying peace out to Winter but we have the most exciting 6 weeks in sports. If you aren’t jacked by the end of this, you need to get your pulse checked.
First, we have March Madness (all of March-a little of April).
We have teams playing for their post season lives. We have bubble teams that will excel and get into the tourney and bubble teams who will choke so hard they feel like something died inside of them. Emotions all over the place for sure. The upsets tend to start in conference tournaments. We have already had a few. Youngstown State was an 8 seed in the Horizon League and beat the top seed Oakland. Oakland’s season is basically over right now. Just heart breaking. Once we find out who the automatic bids are we have Selection Sunday. Bubble teams just holding on for dear life praying to get in the Big Dance. Once the Big Dance starts, anything can happen. And if the tournament is anything like the regular season was, hold on to your pants. Shit could get out of control.
Second we have WWE’s flagship event, WrestleMania (March 31-April 2).
The Shows of Shows, The Grandest Stage of Them All, The Greatest Spectacle in Sports Entertainment. This years event will be at Camping World Stadium (The Citrus Bowl) in Orlando, Florida. This will be a full weekend of great entertainment. Friday will be the WWE Hall of Fame induction, Saturday will be NXT TakeOver, and the weekend will close with WrestleMania on Sunday night. What a weekend!
Last, we always save the best for last, The Masters (April 3-April 9).
What an event at one of the greatest places on earth, Augusta National Golf Club. You cannot beat that place. I could sit here and type my fingers off and not be able to give it justice. Everything from all the history to the $4 beers is absolutely perfect. Luckily I will be attending at least one day maybe two this year. Absolutely love wondering around that place. Oh yeah, watching the tournament isn’t to shabby either.
Well, there you have it folks. 5-6 weeks of nothing but entertainment, craziness, and f-u-n. Damn am I excited! I don’t even know what else to say. Just sit back and enjoy it.
