College Hockey: Way better than March Madness

The NCAA hockey tournament is being shown on ESPN2 and ESPNU this weekend. I am writing this shortly after UNH scored with .3 seconds left to sent their game with North Dakota into OT. The same thing happened last night, when Minnesota-Duluth scored with less than a second, and then went on to win in OT. Meanwhile Air Force knocks off powerhouse Michigan (I once broke my collarbone on the rink the Wolverines still play on), and another #1 seed Denver loses in the first round. This is truly March Madness.

The NCAA hockey championship is a true gem. Intense games, great comebacks, upsets, and, well, it's hockey, and there is no better sport than hockey. Yes, the hoop tourney is great, plus everyone is in at least one pool for it. But, I'll take the hockey tourney over any other college sport.
