I went to a very small school (Loras College) which had only about 2,000 students (this was smaller than my high school!). And although I was a Duhawks basketball fan, I never really got into March Madness. That all changed this year, after being fully immersed in University of Kansas Jayhawk basketball through my boyfriend, who is a very proud KU alum.
I have to say I’ve become a Jayhawk fan myself and am so excited that March Madness has officially begun! I’ve already won four of my games in my bracket (as of 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 18th) and can’t wait to see what else happens! Now I finally understand what all the hype is about and have to say that I’m pretty proud of myself for finally getting into the March Madness spirit.
A few of our Zapwater clients are also getting into the games by offering some special deals. Le Dress boutique in Wicker Park is teaming up with Mulberry & Me, Penelope’s M.Go and Elevenzees to celebrate the culmination of college basketball by offering 90% off select items. For men who visit a HALO Salon (for men) during game days, they can view all NCAA games while getting groomed.
No matter who you’re rooting for have fun and take advantage of the March Madness specials across the city. Although I have to say I can’t wait to be cheering on the Jayhawks in Indy!
