It’s March and that can only mean one thing. Okay, two, St. Patrick’s Day and basketball. For sports fans, the second best thing to the Super Bowl is the NCAA basketball tournament, otherwise known as March Madness. For Anthony Amado and other sports fans, it’s away to enjoy the excitement of the tournament and be involved.
Part of the fun for fans is the brackets. Fans can simply print out an empty bracket and fill in which teams he or she thinks will win, all the way down to the championship game. There are contests, bets, ands prizes for those who predict the winner.
“The filling out of brackets, watching the game, the food, as all become a tradition for me and my friends”. Says Anthony Amado of New Jersey. “It’s a way to kick back and enjoy the games together”.
Even President Barack Obama gets in on the fun. Obama fills out a bracket every year as well. The President was close to predicting the tournament champion a few years ago.
