Sports Panel: Do you have any NCAA Tournament rituals?

Post Independent
Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado

March Madness is here. Do you have any yearly rituals associated with the tourney? Have a pool you always enter? Make any crazy bets with family or friends?

Also, what’s your prediction for the Final Four?

Our family has given March Madness its own corporate sponsor: Sonic.

Starting a few years ago we began a family pool where Mom rewards the top two or three brackets with gift cards to Sonic restaurant. My kids and I love their shakes, so even my 5-year old son does a bit of studying in Bracketology 101.

As far as my Final Four, I’m a fan of the ACC so I have Duke and North Carolina as two of the Final Four teams. I’ve also grown to like Louisville’s style of play, so I have them in the Final Four along with Connecticut.

I figured with three Big East teams getting No. 1 seeds, it must have been a pretty tough conference this year, so I’m looking forward to a championship clash between the Big East and the ACC.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any rituals other than filling out my bracket (and dominating it).

Fortunately, I CAN give you my final 4 picks. And they are: Morehead State, Eastern Tennessee State, University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and Radford. Thank you.
