Time To Fill Out Those March Madmess Brackets
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

If you are like me, you are excited. March Madness is just around the corner. I won’t be long until all the teams will be playing each other to see who goes to the final four. I know you have been doing your research and you have begun to fill out your 2011 March Madness Brackets. The hot teams this year are beginning to show up.

Purdue looks very good. Of course Duke has a load of talent this year.

There are the perennial favorites such as Georgetown, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Texas, etc. These are usually in the top 25 college teams every year.

Then we will have the sleepers that nobody watches. Next thing you know they will be moving through the March madness brackets. They will be challenging those top teams and in some cases surprising them as they did last year. Alabama is in that class. Murry State is there as well.

Do you remember who they were last year? Butler was a big surprise.

Then, of course, there are the star players this year. You know what I mean. These players seem to stand out for some of the teams and make a big difference. Pullen for Kansas State is a big one. Butler is returning Shelvin Mack and Ronald Norad. If you’re doing research, these players, become a big part of that process. You’ve got to know who they are and the contribution they have been making.

If you are like me, you get together with your sports friends, and fill in those 2011 March Madness brackets and then place a lil wager on who will win this year. There is only one winner so you have to do your research smartly. We have fun doing it and it is a good chance to get together and do something. So grab that bracket and I’ll see you at the top. That is where I am most of the years.

Born and raised in Southern Oregon. Viet Nam 67-68. BA Degree from Howard Payne University 1973. Married three girls. Retired U.S. Army with 20 years service. I've been interested in writing for long time now. I love expressing myself that way.
