March "Parody" Madness

It's that time of year once again in College Basketball, that's right its time for the NCAA Tournament. March Madness never fails to disappoint every year because the tournament has its share of upsets and Cinderella teams.

Now to me I think that seeding use to matter in the tournament, but with the way things have gone in the past few years... my mind has changed completely on the subject. Yes as I mentioned before there are always upsets. Now it seems as though it's happening more often and I dare use the word parody as the reasoning behind it.

Parody is very interesting since it has basically taken over a lot of major sports over the past few years, but it's done wonders for College Basketball during tournament time. Myself along with most sports fans miss dynasties but other than the Patriots in NFL, they are a thing of the past. It's great to see the underdog team make it all the way to the final four in the tournament and face a powerhouse team like Duke or North Carolina. It makes for great Basketball and good ratings especially if that underdog team pulls of the impossible and wins against the powerhouse favorites. The best part of that is the Cinderella teams always mess up people's brackets when it comes to picking who's winning what regions. Along with who is winning the whole thing.

I like parody in the tournament because it makes everything so wide open and seeding doesn't really matter. It is nice to see a number one seed lose, just as long as its not your team. This year I'm sure the tournament will be full of surprises,but there is one question to be asked.... Who is this years George Mason?
