Madness. Two words that can stir the spirit of sports
fans just as fully as its professional peers the
Super Bowl and World Series. The NCAA Men’s
Basketball Tournament, the official name, is the
one college event that can not only measure up to
the spectacle of the big leagues but often times
there a more glorious calendar entry in the entire
world than “Pitchers and Catchers Report”?
With the opening of Major League Baseball’s
training camps in Florida and Arizona the world
takes yet another step towards the eventual thaw
what I told you about the Mets last year still remains.
I still believe in the ability of Jose Reyes and
I still believe in the ability of Kaz Matsui. I
still believe the right tools are in place and that
better days for the Mets are not far off.
since I mouthed off last week about the NFL and
Fox catering to the non-football fans by simplifying
the game with over-the-top graphics, outrageous
advertisements and poorly produced halftime shows
– I guess I need to comment on the overall
packaging of this year’s Super Bowl extravaganza.
