Let the Madness begin!

Welcome to the greatest time of the year! Though the Hoyas don't play until tomorrow (THANK GOD), plenty of drama will unfold today and this evening, including the evil and NCAA investigated Syracuse Orange against America's Team, the Montana Grizzlies. So kick back, relax, tell your boss to get bent and after you're fired, enjoy this first day of the 2013 NCAA Tournament!
