The NCAA college basketball championship tournament—March Madness—is one of my favorite sporting events of the year. The raw emotion that each game evokes is unparalleled as sixty-eight teams hit the hardwood, fighting for their dream to be the one team that emerges as the national champion in the end. The jubilation and simultaneous agony at the end of each 40 minute contest is palpable to any viewer just by looking at the faces of the players on each team. That emotion easily transfers over to us as fans as we each have some type of interest in each match-up, whether we are rooting on our alma maters or favorite teams, or are just hoping to beat our co-workers and friends in a bracket contest.
