Madness: Day One

Thursday, March 20, 2008


So here we are. The greatest two day span on the planet. All systems (Cable, TIVO, and Internet) are a go and it's going to be a great time. Here's what's on tap. Instead of trying to pull off another Liveblogapocalypse I'm going to be putting up time slot open threads and concentrating on the Announcer quotes, your quotes, and the videos. I'm really trying to get at least three Youtube accounts canceled in one day.

I'm also going to try to provide you with as many updates as I can, but not unless you ask for them. Everyone is going to be watching the games live and/or on the Internet, but if you don't have access just post a comment and ask for an update. I or another commenter will get it to you right away.

It's going to be an awesome day everyone. The beer is icy cold and the jello is in the mold. Here are your NCAA Tournament links for day one and I should get in a couple of posts before the games start at Noon. Cheers!

Oh and there's still time to join the AA Bracket Challenge....

Everyone should be required to watch those "one shining moment" montages this morning. As cheesy as they are they will get you pumped thinking back to all those prior tourneys.
