Many of you are excited, thinking that March means spring.
You are mistaken.
To me, March means something different.
It means the Madness has begun.

Hello, my name is Janna and I have been keeping a secret from you. I am a MSU Men's Basketball Fanatic.
I went to Michigan State University from 1997-2001, during the era of the Flintstones, and the Golden Years of MSU Basketball.

There will be many beers drank.
There will be many swear words uttered.
There will be many nails bitten.
There will be many tweets.
There will be Mr. Bee throwing the remote in protest.

It will be great.
Or, at least it will be fun.
Do they have the team to do it again? Who knows? The road to the final four has many twists and turns. I'd like to believe they have a shot, I'd also like to believe it will be above 50 degrees before May in Michigan. We shall see....
PS I know you guys have not forgotten about Friday Favorites.
