5. No March weekend can end without a mention of MARCH MADNESS
The Event: This final weekend of March represents the sweet 16 and the elite 8. The question on the men’s side is will Cinderella still be dancing come Monday? Is the 11 seeded VCU for real after destroying both the Hoyas of Georgetown and the Purdue Boilermakers to make it to their very first suite 16? The question on the woman’s side is still the same: Can anyone stop history making, perenial power and 2-time defending national champion, Lady Huskies of UConn? Will it be Duke? Will it be Stanford or Baylor? Will it be an unexpected surprise? Or will this Dynasty add another trophy? You just have to watch.
While watching the Road to the Final Four, enjoy different types of wings, nachos or whatever your taste buds desires then wash it all down with your favorite beverage while enjoying the madness and the excitement of March
