What Does March Madness Have to Do with Socialism?

“Yes, it is that very special time of the year, and this morning many of you began your office bracket pool contests. Last evening, we learned who the 68 teams that will enter the NCAA Men’s basketball tournament, which will begin this week. There is nothing more America than what we have affectionately come to call “March Madness.” It’s the men’s and women’s college basketball tournament season. Two games that are uniquely American are baseball, and the game started by Dr. James Naismith – basketball. They are two games now played all over the world, but nothing can compare with the World Series, aka “October Classic,” and this hallowed time we love, follow, and cherish, “March Madness.”

This year, as a Tennessee Volunteer alumnus, we have historically been preparing for a run by our once venerable Lady Vols, led by the legendary, now deceased, Coach Pat Head Summit. However, thank you University of Texas for firing Coach Rick Barnes. We are thrilled to have a number two-seeded men’s basketball team going into the NCAA tournament. Not too long ago, our Vols men’s basketball team struggled to make the tournament.

But, “What does March Madness have to do with socialism?” you may ask. Well, everything.”
