I guess it's just when you see the underdog small school David playing so hard and being successful against the big school Goliath, that you can't help but respect that and root for them to win. Maybe I just want drama regardless of who wins, I want Valparaiso to win on a last-second shot, Christian Laettner to hit an improbable turn around, or Tyus Edny to drive the length of the court and break my heart. Between last year's tournament and this year's tournament, I'm feeling cheated! All of the number one and number two seeds are still alive. It's like if you pick the higher seed to win you will be right.
I remember watching games in the good old days and you didn't have a clue who was gonna win. One minute you wanted to pull your hair out because it seemed like it would take a miracle for your team to win, then when the horn blew to end the game you were jumping for joy. At the end of the tournament we should be able to watch "One shining moment" and get chills down our spines from the excitement and heartache we have felt from watching the NCAA tournament. I'm enjoying watching the games, but I miss the good old days!!!
Now I'm just MAD from March Madness. I'm MAD because the teams I picked are winning. I'm MAD because I haven't seen a last second half court shot to win the game. I'm MAD because I'm confused. I'm MAD because the underdog keeps losing in games that I picked them to lose but watching the game makes me want them to win. I'm MAD because Wake Forest lost. I'm Mad because I know the tournament is half over and that makes me sad.
And to top it all off... I'm MAD because I had to turn to the last seconds of the Heat-Pistons game and watch the Pistons get cheated out of a win to get the drama I was craving. I can't stand the Heat. Go Lakers!!!!
