The Drive to the FINAL 4 down March Madness Boulevard has been bumpy


Surprise, Surprise, Surprise, as Gomer of The Andy Griffith Show  used to say, or was it Goober?…  But I digress…  Certainly there have been major surprises in the Tournament already and betting that more of them will not occur again would be foolhardy, based on events so far… 

In modern times, within a relatively short span of time the game of basketball has become a vast phenomenon, not only in the “Pan American hemispheres” but world-wide, credit due in part to the fast court action of the sport and in no short measure to the excitement generated  by the college teams during March Madness

By the way, who remembers the first American Dream Team in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics http://www.nba.com/history/dreamT_moments.html, (or was it the only Dream Team ever), who “spanked” the world  without breaking a sweat?… But with only the passing of a relatively short span of time the Argentine Olympic Basketball team became the surprising Olympic Champion in 2004…

March Madness is not yet over so hold on to your seat, and the remote, ’cause other surprising finishes can await…
