Everything has come full circle once again with the successful first weekend of the NCAA Tournament. For the first time since last year, America seems to have returned to a normal way of living and, rightfully so. It’s been a long time coming for American’s to have a moment where they can put everything aside for a few hours and get lost in the magic of March Madness.
March Madness has always been the event that has brought people from all walks of life together. This year it’s meant more than ever before. This year’s March Madness came at the perfect time when American’s needed a reminder of how great sports truly are and how they bring us all together.
Sure, Covid-19 has knocked us down, some of us have lost love ones, some of us have lost jobs, but we never quit, we never backed down, and we never gave in to fear. We showed the rest of the world that no matter how hard life gets or how many times we get knocked down, America always rises from the ashes, no matter the challenge.
That way is thinking is why you should feel no guilt what’s so ever in celebrating the NCAA Tournament. After all these student-athletes, coaches, and support staff have spent countless months away from their families and friends, making sacrifice after sacrifice to make us the fans happy for a few hours on game day. Without those people, none of this would have been possible, and for that, we’re thankful.
Sure, some might try to steal the joy they’ll try to tell you that being happy and celebrating the NCAA Tournament is wrong, and quite frankly, it’s that dangerous way of thinking that has caused so much division amongst over the last year.
No matter how hard those people try to steal the joy that we all feel, there’s no stopping the March Madness train. Everything has finally come full circle again, and for us sports fans, that gives us a reason to celebrate no matter what. Trust me. It’s okay to celebrate seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The NCAA Tournament has provided us with that hope and excitement for the future.
