For some avid sports fans, March Madness is the most wonderful time of the year. The single-elimination tournament between 68 college teams yields unlikely heroes, unimaginable upsets and unparalleled joy to the players, teams and fans alike.
But it’s not the game-winning buzzer shots or the success of our brackets that we look forward to this year. It’s the passion and soul that’s poured into these games that really warms our hearts. It’s the unique bond we form with coworkers competing in the office pool. It’s the sense of camaraderie we experience rooting for our alma mater. And it’s the admiration we have for the college athletes who dedicate everything they’ve got for the love of the game.
Our Together team can’t wait to watch UConn’s women’s basketball team in this year’s tournament. The Huskies have won 107 consecutive games and will be seeking their fifth consecutive, and 12th overall, NCAA title this year. These girls are on fire.
