Right now, I am first hand witnessing the destination that March Madness in school. The Rhode Island vs Oklahoma is happening right now and there is two minutes left. The entire right side of Doc’s 7th is all hovered around one kid who is steaming the game on a 5 inch screen and I, dreadfully, have to emit that I am part of this mob. Teachers hate this, but we don’t care, it’s fun and exciting, but mostly, the mob has formed due to the fact that most of the have money on it, so that is why we are watching. In conclusion, for any teacher reading this, please let us watch March Madness.
I be a little over confident but I’m feeling pretty good about March Madness 2018. I know I’m not the best at it since I’ve only won the neighborhood pool once before when I picked Memphis to go the finals a long time ago, but still that is still more wins than millions of other Americans. I feel like this is also a time for bonding, not the type that you maybe thinking of though. I’m talking about when the person next to you is streaming the games in class and you ask him to turn his computer a little so you can see what is going on. There is a good chance that you won’t say anything else to him other than “Thanks” once your done watching, but I feel like that is some great time together or at least those are my thoughts on a great time in school with someone that you’ve never met. Do you have those same thoughts about March?
Congratulations to Norway for setting a new Olympic medal count record of 39 total medals, 14 gold medals, 14 silver medals, and 11 bronze medals, beating the old record of most total medals won at a single Olympic Games. This break out year was lead by Norway’s elite Alpine Skiers who are so good that they have received the name “The Attacking Vikings”. Germany came in second this year with 31 total medals with 14 gold medals, 10 silver medals, and 7 bronze medals. The U.S.A finished forth with a respectable 9 gold medals, 8 silver medals, and 6 bronze medals. The host country, South Korea, did well in the medal count finishing in 7th place in the medal count. They ended the Olympics with 5 gold medals, 8 silver medals, and 4 bronze medals. Next Winter Olympics will be in Beijing where China will have a home field advantage for their athletes, but do you think that will really be a factor?
