How The NCAA Women’s Final Four Made Me A Basketball Fan

I am not really a “sporty” person. I played softball for one year, and mostly sat the bench. We do enjoy going out to sporting events, but – honestly – a lot of that is for the “going out” part of the equation. The crowd, the excitement, the yelling, the beer. Emphasis on beer. Well, there was no beer at the college semi-finals in Denver Sunday night (emphasis on college), but there was A LOT of excitement and yelling. We saw both games of the Women’s Final Four: UConn vs. Notre Dame and Baylor vs. Stanford. I have been to the Pepsi Center for plenty of events, including Avalanche and Nuggets games – but I have never heard it that LOUD.
