Cleveland (WOIO) - Is there anything greater than March Madness? Okay, maybe a Cleveland championship, but that's the thing about the Big Dance, you don't have to have a horse in the race to get emotionally involved. The memories remain forever. Laettner's shot, Valvano trying to find somebody to hug, Butler just falling short. It gets bigger and better every year, and every year, I fill out my bracket, believing somebody will come out of nowhere to make that magical, unexpected run. This year, I'm going with Gonzaga. Who knows? They could go out in Round One (which is technically Round Two, thanks to the play-in games). But even that's part of the magic. Who knows?
I have Gonzaga rolling through Southern, then Pitt (which had already lost by the time I started writing this on Thursday), then Wisconsin, and, to my chagrin, Ohio State. I hope I'm wrong about the Buckeyes, who finished incredibly strong, but they just haven't shown the consistency this season.
Stay tuned. More magic to come. It always does.
