Move Over Japan… It’s March Madness Time!

Today might be the greatest day of the year. At the very least, it’s the best day of the year so far.

Why?

Let me tell ya!

Not only was is beautiful outside, but it’s St. Patrick’s Day (which… means nothing to me actually since I’m not Irish) and, more importantly, it’s the opening day of Mach Madness!

For sports fans, this is basically porn. Actually, scratch that. For sports fans, porn is porn. But March Madness is right up there.

Beginning at noon, there is college basketball on all day. There is not much better than watching a 13 seed try to pull off a miraculous upset against a 4 seed, and especially when you accurately predicted it in your March Madness bracket.

Speaking of which, I laugh when people go crazy when they accurately predicted a first round game. Unless you lose one of your final fours on the first day, the first round really means nothing. Whether I picked it or not, I will always root for the underdog.

So yeah, March Madness is awesome. I couldn’t believe it at 6:00 when CBS turned away from March Madness and went to the news and started talking about Japan. Pretty much the last thing I care about on March Madness Day.

It’s cool too that it happened to fall on St. Patrick’s Day. And while we’re on the topic, who wore a green shirt today?

If you answered yes, go ahead and slap yourself in the face! Especially if you’re not Irish.

The worst part about St. Patrick’s Day was waking up and seeing people’s Facebook status updates talking about being in the city at 10:00 a.m. and how awesome it is.

First of all..

1) Do you not have jobs?

2) It’s 10 a.m.

2) The city is AWFUL on St. Patrick’s Day. Arguably the worst place on Earth. Crowded city, drunk assholes, crowded bars, $20 covers, $10 beers. Last place I’d ever go on St. Patty’s.

4) It’s 10 a.m.

5) Go. To. Work.

How am I celebrating St. Patty’s? Well, let me tell ya! I’m not doing anything tonight, unfortunately. That’s because I’m waking up early tomorrow morning to head to the beautiful (and by beautiful, I really mean shitty) city of Philadelphia for what is essentially going to be a 48-hour drinking binge. It is going to be AWESOME.

Plus I just checked the weather for Philly — supposed to be 72 degrees and sunny tomorrow! There’s a 30% chance of showers on Saturday, which kind of sucks, but that’s bearable. But tomorrow should be absolutely grand.

Yup, I said grand.

Not only is it awesome to be drunk during the day. But it’s awesome to be drunk during the day in a new city. And not only is it awesome to be drunk during the day while in a new city, but it’s even more awesome when March Madness is going on. Words can’t express how excited I am.

Go ahead. Just try to convince me otherwise that this isn’t one of the best times of the year. I dare you. Not so good for Japan, but awesome for me. By the way, text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate 10 bucks. Or spend it on beer. I really don’t care.

Hope everyone is enjoying this time of the year as much as I am, and guess what day tomorrow is? In the words of the great Rebecca Black, “It’s Friday, Friday, Gotta get down on Friday!”
