Why does one of the nation’s top college basketball writers live in Kentucky?
Well, he did marry a Louisvillian, but the Bluegrass is also the epicenter of the sport, said Yahoo! Sports writer Pat Forde.
He considers the NCAA tournament our best national sporting event because of its geographic scope, ability for all to participate (through filling out brackets) and sheer unpredictability. “Something crazy will happen every year,” he said.
He learned that early, covering the infamous 1992 Duke-Kentucky game – with its dramatic ending coming just five minutes before his deadline. His advice for brackets: “Be bold, but pragmatic.”
