Inhhh…Ahhhh, go ahead breathe in that refreshing oxygen. Do

you smell that? That voluptuously thick aroma permeating the spring

air, no not Greeley, that my friends is the scent of March

Madness.

Championship week is underway, a few teams have already snagged

a ticket to the Big Dance and by next Sunday brackets will litter

the campus. This is the most wonderful time of the year!

When else can so many condone gambling, so many condone chucking

remotes at the screen, so many condone weeping?

Shoot, it’s got me all teary-eyed, but holding strong and with a

clearing of my throat, “Ehhuum, Ehhuum,” I’d like to sing one of my

favorite tunes.

So, envision me with Frank’s blue eyes and resounding vocals and

off we go…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

With teams sittin’ on the bubble, Cinderella causing trouble and

lots of real tears. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s the hap-happiest season of all.

My bracket is busting, Bobby Knight is cussing. All for an

orange ball. It’s the hap-happiest season of all.

There’ll be Dukes and Salukis, Tar Heels, Syracusies, and an

unblemished team from St. Joes.

There’ll be Laettner-type stories and tales of the glories of

tournaments long, long ago.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

There’ll be much full-court presses and puke causing stresses

when games go just how I feared. It’s the most wonderful time of

the year.

It’s the hap-happiest season of all.

With day games, skipping classes, Clark Kellogg loved by masses,

at one shining moment I’ll bawl. It’s the hap-happiest season of

all.

There’ll be Dukes and Salukis, Tar Heels, Syracusies and an

unblemished team from St. Joes.

There’ll be Laettner-type stories and tales of the glories of

tournaments long, long ago.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

With pulled groins and teams choking, takin’ charges or dunking

on somebody’s dear. It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
