6th Annual March Madness For a Cure is Back
It is that time again.....March Madness is here. This is my favorite tournament in all of sports as it always contains some very big moments. I love the David vs Goliath type games and watching the little guy give the top seeded teams a run for their money. I always flash back to when I was sitting in my Dad's hospital room after he was first diagnosed with cancer. It was the year the Angels won the world series which means it was the year the Angels and Yankees met on the road to the World Series. My Dad was a lifelong Yankees fan (not me!!!) but this was the one and only time I saw him cheer for the other team. I don't know if it was because it was the 'Angels' tied to heavenly innuendoes or if it was because he felt like David versus Goliath but we had some good times in the middle of a dark place watching the Angels pull crazy come from behind victories to take the World Series.
Anyway, we are back. Whether you like March Madness or not........you probably hate cancer and one way to show your hatred and your desire to find a cure is to join our March Madness For a Cure bracket.
