Our Silver Edition Of March Madness: Welcome To Hartford!

Mar 21, 2019

March Madness starts TODAY with some of the best games coming to Hartford!

There's a lot of excitement over the match-up between #5 seed Marquette's Marcus Howard and #12 seed Murray State's Ja Morant. I'm just sayin' that a #5 seed has beat a #12 seed 67 percent of the time.

Last year's winner, Villanova, also starts in Hartford. And Florida State will play the University of Vermont. Okay, Vermont may not win but they have a great mascot and they tell you why you should root for them. 

As is our custom, a comedian and a political commentator join us to share their bracket strategy. Since there are 9.2 quintillion possible outcomes for a bracket -- that's 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 -- we think their chances are pretty good. 

Today, we talk mascots, vasectomy rates during March Madness, Wofford, the XL Center's deterioration and hopefully, something about basketball.
