March madness? Only if you call my writing madness.

I’m no sports fan, so the regular meaning of March Madness holds no meaning to me. However, finding out some of the team names competing in March Madness has left me in amusement and surprise. Look at some of these:

Maryland Terrapins
Georgetown Hoyas
Syracuse Orange (Not just Oranges, ORANGE.)
Xavier Musketeers
Minnesota Golden Gophers (That’s right. Not just gophers, GOLDEN gophers.)
Oakland Golden Grizzlies (More golden stuff!)
North Texas Mean Green (I wonder if their mascot is really the Ninja Turtles)
Purdue Boilermakers (I’m imagining kitchen supplies as their mascot)
Sam Houston State Bearkats (Science gone terribly wrong)
Richmond Spiders (Awesome, and Jonathan Coulton’s terribly wrong pick for winning it all)

Hm, maybe I should have filled one of these out just for kicks. When’s the next elimination-based tournament I know nothing about?
