What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
As a fan of college hockey, I realize that I am a lover of a sport that has exactly nine other fans. Every year at this time, I try to expand that number into double-digits by allowing all of you college basketball fans a chance to double-dip on brackets.
That’s right…the NCAA Men’s Hockey tournament field has been announced, and thanks to the good people at SiouxSports.com, there is now a clickable on-line bracket that will allow you to double your tournament misery (registration required, but it’s free). You can also expect a high pro-North Dakota bias; the name of the website ought to be a solid clue…Games start at 1 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, March 25th.
“But J-Dub,” you say, “I don’t know anything about college hockey.” Suck it up and fill out a bracket, Muffin. Know that girl in your office who will win your basketball pool? She’s going to win based on a strategy of picking teams based on what color their uniforms are or because they have a cute mascot. Meanwhile, you as “Mr I-Watch-College-Basketball-And-I-Have-Michigan-State-All-The-Way” is using his bracket as slightly uncomfortable toilet paper.
In a nutshell, here are the basics of college hockey.
Even if you decide you don’t have the pucks to fill out a bracket, at least find this upcoming tournament on your cable package this weekend and enjoy some of the best sporting action and/or sheer brutality you’ve likely never heard of.
This will come as no surprise to you that it’s been wild here all weekend for the FF.
Wish you could have made it down, brother.
