I Experienced The Madness

So, you know how I said in my last article you should go to the games over in Buffalo to experience it, considering how close it is? Well, that is exactly what I did.

One of my best friends, right after my last article was written, texted me asking if I wanted to go with her to the Saturday games hosted in Buffalo, NY. I couldn't of been happier with my decision.

Of course it was an easy yes. It's March Madness, are you kidding me? Of course I'm going.

We got extremely lucky with the games that day. The first game, tip off at 12:10pm, was Notre Dame vs. West Virginia. Fighting Irish all the way (I also picked them in my bracket, so they had to win). The guy sitting next to me even started chanting, Ru-dy....Ru-dy.....Ru-dy...Ru-dy Ru-dy Ru-dy. Yep, it took everything in me not to start chanting with him. Easily one of my favorite movies.

I show up in my (Lauren's) ND shirt, rooting away, and.... they lose. But, don't worry, Lauren had her Villanova shirt on, and that was a sure win, right?

UPSET CITY BABY

For those who do not know, or did not watch, Villanova (the #1 seed in the country) played Wisconsin (an 8 seed) and Wisconsin completely pulled off one of the greatest upsets in March Madness history. Villanova not only won last year's tournament, but were the second most picked team in the country to do it all again.

By far one of the greatest experiences of my life. As a major sports fan, seeing an upset like this was beyond exciting.

Will I be doing this again? You best believe I will.
