Final Four is such a special event

The NCAA Final Four is one of the most special events in all of sports.  I had the opportunity to go the Final Four in 1990 at the old McNichols Arena in Denver, CO.  I was there to cheer on the Georgia Tech squad which boasted “Lethal Weapon 3”, Dennis Scott, Brian Oliver and Kenny Anderson.  Other three teams were Duke, Arkansas and UNLV.  Georgia Tech lost to UNLV in the semifinals that Saturday and UNLV went on to win the Championship that year.  It was an awesome environment and really cool to see the four participating schools’ fans decked out in the different sections around the arena.

When watching on TV, one of my favorite moments is after the title game, the singing of “One Shining Moment” with the montage of tournament highlights.   Really a special time, if you get a chance to attend one, go for it!
