My March Madness Gets Even Madder

Posted by Brandon |

Like I mentioned the other day, I have the March Madness. I have a serious, serious case of it, in fact, and today didn't help.

For my birthday (which is coming up on Wednesday by the way) Death? bought me a ticket to the NCAA basketball tournament in Portland. It seemed like there was probably a pretty good chance that my Washington Huskies would end up playing in Portland, but even if they didn't I was excited to go anyway. College basketball is my favorite sport and this is my Christmas, it's easily my favorite time of the year, so experiencing the tournament firsthand...for the first time...how could I pass that up even if my team might not be playing in Portland.

But oh, the basketball gods smiled on your boy Brandon tonight. Not only are the Huskies playing in Portland as a #4 seed against #13 Mississippi State (kind of a scary game though), they also put my other favorite team, the Gonzaga Bulldogs, in Portland as well (another #4 seed playing #13 Akron who beat my alma mater Bowling Green in the conference tourney).

So tickets that were selling for relatively low prices earlier this week when I got my ticket have already skyrocketed. The Rose Garden is going to be packed - Zags fans and Huskies fans travel really well, especially so close to home, and I am even more geeked about being a part of it. I can't wait to spend a few days in Portland and I'm praying for victories for my teams and hoping to get some upsets in the other games.

Love the NCAA tourney. I go every year when early games are played at the Nassau Coliseum. This year, Philly is the closest venue.

I'm a little bummed that my Siena Saints drew Ohio State in Dayton in the first round. Not very fair for a 8/9 matchup if you ask me.

Have a great time in Portland!

Sounds like about the best birthday gift you could've gotten. When I lived in Texas, one year there was a good chance UT was going to make it to the Sugar Bowl so I bought tickets in advance for face value. They didn't make it so I sold them on Ebay for about 5x what I paid for them. I don't know why I dont' keep doing it b/c someone from one of the teams that get in will pay those prices. Maybe that's a way to be master of my own domain?

I reiterate: You suck.

BE - I totally agree about Ohio State. If you've ever lived in Ohio you know that the whole state is Ohio State mad so it's going to be a huge advantage for them. I hope Siena beats their asses.

Becky - It worked out great, couldn't have been better. Even if neither of my teams ended up playing in Portland, it would still be a great present for me since I'm such a huge college basketball fan.

Jesse - Ha!
