Let March Madness Begin!

March Madness Rice Krispie Treats

As my family and friends will tell you, I love watching basketball! March has become one of my favorite months because it means MARCH MADNESS and lots and lots of basketball. Even though I don’t catch a lot of the regular season college basketball games, I still love filling out a bracket every year and cheering for my teams hoping to win family, friends or work pools. Selection Sunday is this Sunday, March 13th, so get your brackets printed and play along! Don’t think that you have to know team stats to play or even win (because like me, I don’t always know all the teams so I choose between the teams based on the team mascot, school colors or even the design of their jerseys). Have fun filling out your brackets and make some Rice Krispie treat basketballs to get into the spirit! The First Round (aka the Big Dance) March 15-16. To stay up to date on whose playing, schedules and scores, download the NCAA March Madness Live app. Good luck to everyone!
