Yes, normally the best March Madness games happen in the second weekend. You trim the fat out of the first few rounds of games, have a little fun with some Cinderellas and then eventually, you arrive at the cream of the crop. But while those Sweet 16 and Elite 8 games are memorable, I always enjoy the first two days the most. 32 matchups in all, and with the schedule starting as early as noon, it can become a national holiday… at least in my mind.
But of course, it comes with a price, especially as you get older. Wives, girlfriends, bosses, work, everyone wants a piece of your time, and only the smartest, most expertly devised plans can get you to escape with your dignity in tact.
