Why I Love March!!March 15th, 2012 at 2:30 pm by daniellemitchell under Face of MyINDY-TV, Uncategorized
It has arrived!! This is my Christmas month!! Yes, it’s St. Patrick’s Day, but I am talking about March Madness!!
My love for college basketball started at a young age, before I can even remember. I had an Indiana University mobile above my crib, so you see the ingraining began early. My father took me to my first game really young and I think that was when I was hooked. So hooked that I was in the hospital on a ventilator during the 1987 NCAA Championship game and requested a TV so I could watch – yes I am probably a little overboard.
I continue the same tradition every year, when the selections have been made on that Sunday it begins. I print a minimum of ten brackets and have to fill them out in pencil. Which 12 seed is going to upset the 5? What 14 seed is going to bring on their 3-point shooting advantage over the 3 seed? And, ugh, those pesky 8 and 9 seeds that are too close for comfort! Once completed, those brackets, a highlighter and red pen will follow me everywhere I go until April!
Ahh don’t you just love March!!!
