My First NCAA Tournament Game Experience

On Friday night a friend from college called me up and informed me that he had an extra ticket to the Tennessee-Michigan State game and that I should come since I’m a Tennessee fan.  Sound logic, I thought, so I went.

We’ve already had a few games on Thursday night; both of them were bitterly disappointing.  I’m hoping the Oklahoma St.-Georgia game and the Virginia Tech-Alabama games will live up to the hype.  I’m going to take both SEC teams in those matchups.
