March Madness

My favorite weekend of the year is the opening weekend of March Madness.  I've been filling out brackets since I was kid and getting sick, coincidentally every year the Madness kicked in round about Wednesday night during the ESPN preview shows.  To my awesome parents credit, I don't think by the time I got to high school I even had to feign the symptoms.  If I was allowed one or two days of hooky I'm glad they were those two days every year.
