Have you ever heard of Jeff Goodman?
Me either…until about 15 minutes ago.
During March Madness — the ‘most wonderful time of the year’ — I look forward to all the new names and faces and stories of teams going above-and-beyond what even they thought they could do on the road to the Final Four.
It’s the spirit of college sports.
Sure, we start with a Number 1 seed for the tournament, and Number 1 seeds for each of the regions. But the games that truly inspire us — that have made this championship the tradition it is today — are those David-and-Goliath victories.
The Cinderella teams. The lower-seed overachievers. The bubble teams who prove they belong.
Which brings me back to Jeff Goodman, a CBS sportswriter based in Boston who seems to have forgotten all that. If it is that difficult for you to watch, Mr. Goodman, simply look the other way.
The rest of us enjoy the view.
