how it's the most wonderful time of the year

tonight's march madness was beyond fantastic - especially the final two games.

consider the ending of texas-west virginia, with kevin pittsnogle nailing a deep three to tie it with five seconds left, only to have kenton paulino nail another three at the buzzer to win the game and advance to the elite eight.

and then consider the ending of ucla-gonzaga, with ucla fighting back from a 17-point difference and finally taking the lead for good with ten seconds left off an amazing steal and layup in the backcourt.

then consider pittsnogle from west virginia crying in his jersey, and then adam morrison from gonzaga writhing on the court in agony over the toughest of losses. all while the victors celebrated like children on christmas.

then consider those two endings happened within ten minutes of each other.

then consider it's an hour later since they ended and i'm still amped up.

yes, it's the most wonderful time of the year.
