I love basketball. I played it when I was young. Girls’ basketball was six-on-six half court then. I was a guard and never scored any points. My son cannot even begin to understand that concept. It does seem unbelievable in light of today’s sports for women. But I loved it. We could “clog up the middle” with the best of them.
So I was the most enthusiastic fan during my son’s high school basketball career. Perhaps a little too enthusiastic. Sometimes my husband wouldn’t sit with me. Maybe I was a little too loud.
After our son graduated and left basketball behind, and although it wasn’t nearly as fun, I became an avid college basketball fan. I could name most players (or at least recognize their names) on several teams and even quote some stats. That was when I discovered the world of brackets. How could I have missed out on this for so many years?
Now it is that time again. I have been a little pre-occupied for the last two weeks (with what I wonder?), but I can’t wait to fill out the brackets, cross my fingers, and start yelling at the TV again. Hooray for March Madness!!
