Where Did March Madness Go?

Where Did March Madness Go?

Last night’s NCAA Division 1 Women’s Basketball Championship marked the end to a 34 day stretch of great college basketball. College basketball is probably one of my favorite sports to cover, watch and┬áspectate. I’ve had the chance to watch some great games in person including Arch Madness, the second and third rounds of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament in Omaha, Neb. and the NCAA Women’s Basketball Des Moines Regional. I had the chance to see the women’s player of the year (Brittney Griner), the women’s national champion (Baylor), what could be Pat Summitt’s last game coaching and the men’s runner up (Kansas). My only question is where did these past 34 days go? It seems like just yesterday that I was making my way down to St. Louis for Arch Madness.

With that said, I am excited for the upcoming spring events that begin tonight with MLB’s Opening Night. Even though we have had great weather for the past few weeks in Des Moines, it doesn’t feel like spring until the first pitch tonight by Josh Johnson for the Miami Marlins. Another sign of spring is the fact that outdoor track has started, and the Drake Relays are fast approaching. In fact, we are 19 days away from the Beautiful Bulldog Contest that kicks off Relays week. Relays season might be my most hectic time of year, but it is by far one of my favorite events of the season.
