BalLIN, Bubbles and Brackets OhMy!

Let me sum up the NBA by saying one word: BalLIN!

Jeremy Lin has been the best thing that has happened to the NBA. The only other news worthy stories are Dwayne Wadeís reach around foul on Kobe Bryant that broke Kobeís nose during the NBA All-Star game. HA- and who said there is no defense in the All-Star game? The other juicy gossip in the NBA has more to do with reality TV than triple-doubles. Dear Kris Humphries; please take your warm-ups and go back to the bench. We only know your name because of your 72 day marriage to Kim Kardashian. America voted and we want a long term relationship with Jeremy Lin. He came out of no where and the Linsanity has given the NBA and New York Knicks something to cheer for.

The University of Tennessee beat #11 UCONN and #7 ranked Florida twice. 10-6 in SEC ball but the VOLS scored a 7-1 record in the month of February. Cuonzo Martin: round of applause. No one expected this after the roller coaster with Bruce Pearl last season. The fans loved Pearl, but they loved UT more. The VOLS ended the regular season with a sellout crowd (22,172) and placed them nationally in attendance. Averaging over seventeen thousand per home game made this the seventh straight year the VOLS have placed in the top five for attendance nationally. If we were talking about college football it would be a no brainer for UT to be putting on their dancing shoes, but because the NCAA bracket isnít run by advertising sponsorís CEOís that select teams based on a teamís attendance, the VOLS are still a bubble teamÖ Itís true- Iím biased but how can you leave the University of Tennessee out of the top 64 with way they ended the regular season?

Tick-tock, tick-tockÖ. Come-On Selection Sunday! Iíve always considered Selection Sunday a National Holiday. I mean who doesnítÖ banks and schools are closed and most people have the day off. Thereís only one school that Iíve heard isnít a fan of Selection Sunday and thatís only because those birds just canít seem to fly higher than their egos.

Itís one of the most popular topics at the office water cooler and itís a chance for Cinderella to take home a National Championship banner. And so we have to wait just a few more days to find out who will be this years Cinderella and who can dance their way through the bracket.

The bracket sums up college basketball. Itís madness, itís magical- itís March!
