Zzzzzzz: Time for March Madness!

Bring on March Madness–we need it!
For a competitive guy like me–and Paul the Apostle competed so I know it’s a good trait–this is a lousy time of the year to watch television. There’s not a lot of drama. There’s not a lot that’s compelling. There’s not much televised competition. It’s just boring.
Think about it. Football is over. Baseball hasn’t started yet. The NBA playoffs don’t heat up until May. At least Tiger’s back on the tour, but the Masters’ doesn’t happen for two months. NASCAR has started, but these early season races don’t count for as much, do they?
Earlier this week, the Oscar competition ended. “American Idol” has too far to go. Jack Bauer’s only halfway through his afternoon in “24.” Gosh, we’ve got to wait long enough to see if our economy comes back–can’t we get some excitement or conclusion or competition to liven things up?

Thankfully, that annual college tradition that has become a regular office tradition is soon to arrive. Yes, the NCAA Basketball playoffs will soon be here, otherwise known as “March Madness.” Every major sports website will offer a free chance to win mega bucks if you can pick all the games right. It’s statistically impossible to win, but it’s easy to play even if you don’t know basketball. My daughter Lindy (now 8th grade) has won our pool three of the last four years!
So it’s a boring time for sports television. And the competitive season of the arts industry is all over except for the Emmy’s. But for the next several weeks, you can watch hundreds of college student-athletes playing for right to be part of the Great American Pool Contest and, oh yes, to represent their schools and play the game they love. It’s awesome reality-TV.
