It just needs to be said that last night’s game was the best championship game—of any sport—that I’ve seen in a long time. Seriously. I’m not a huge fan of either team, although I’ve generally liked Kansas ever since my cheerleading days when I fell in love with their “Rock, Chalk, Jayhawk” chant. But I was actually cheering for Memphis—how could you not? A Cinderella-type that actually deserves to be there. Memphis, however, fell apart in the final minutes of regulation and Kansas won it in OT.
The game (along with One Shining Moment, of course) reminded everyone why we LOVE March Madness so much! It also reminded me of one of the reasons I love my family so much—we love sports! And we love them TOGETHER :-). All of us (boys, girls, parents, babies) sat there on the edge of our seats, screaming at the television, analyzing the game and saying everything the commentators said before they said it (in my dream world, my dad replaces Dick Vitale). LOVE IT.
