My favorite month of each year has to be the month of March. It is when the spring beings, daylight savings kick back into gear, when everyone puts up shamrock decorations, and baseball season begins and college basketball season ends. However, most importantly it is my birthday month! My birthday is on the 17th, St. Patrick's Day. I am excited to turn 23 years young this year as i will be moving forward in my life engaged and employed full time! (Praise God in this economy!) Here are some of my favorite things in March:
March Madness college basketball - NCAA Final Four Tournament.
Each year in march, 64 teams from all around the nation play to win the nation championship through the most popular tournament in all sports, the NCAA Final Four. Out of the thousands of colleges in the country, only sixty-four schools make it into the tournament based off of their regular season record and national ranking. After the first week of games, it gets narrowed down to 32 teams. After that week of play, it shrinks down to 16 teams, then to 8, and finally to the Final Four. These four teams play, and the 2 winners play each other for the national championship! It is so exciting because the players play with so much heart, and some of the greatest basketball games are played in this tournament. I think the two teams who could win the Final Four this year are the University of Connecticut and the University of Oklahoma.
Major League Baseball begins.
I love the excitement of a new baseball season. I love watching the Angels and going to their games. Unfortunately, this year is will be focused on steroids and performance enhancing drugs more than the game. That is really sad. Anyways, i will still watch and enjoy the season as Ken Griffey Jr. is back on the west coast, who is one of my ALL time favorite baseball players. Also, it will be interesting to see if the Yankee's will win the American League East division after spending multi millions on new players.
The Spring Season.
The Spring season begins and that means it starts to heat up here in southern California. At the beach the water gets warmer and the sun shines longer. All over the place, flowers and trees start to blossom. Also, Spring time means its the season for good fishing! The fish have had a good winter resting and our now ready to spawn, so that means they will all be hungry and active. I am really looking forward to a great month and hopefully we will have some great weather!
Well there are some of my favorite things about Spring, what are some of yours? Leave me a comment and let me know. God bless you guys, and thanks for reading the blog.
