Kentucky fans riot after loss to Wisconsin
As you might expect, Kentucky fans did not take the loss to Wisconsin very well. They took to the streets in Lexington, Kentucky, and set things on fire. March Madness means they are mad after blowing their perfect season. Alabama football fans have always compared themselves to Kentucky basketball fans. The questions over the years have been, “Which Fans are Better?”, and “Which Fans are Worse?”. Well, in all fairness to Alabama football fans (as well as other die hard Alabama boosters), they don’t set fire on things after a loss. Instead, they take away the football team from another University in the state.
Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky tweeted ‘I hate Kentucky’
Wisconsin’s Frank Kaminsky did not hide the way he feels about Kentucky. On April 22, 2011, the most valuable player Tweeted, I hate Kentucky. Some dedicated fan dug up the Tweet before the rematch last night, probably to make the Wisconsin wizard MAD. Thus, the reason it is called March Madness.
March Madness is the right name. Just see the results
Some synonyms for madness are: craziness, lunacy, foolishness, delusion, stupidity, absurdity, irrationality, mental disorder, psychosis, etc. The list goes on and on, and it’s not pretty.
Whatever happened to sportsmanship. But I suppose if it’s called March Madness, fans feel obligated to make sure the event lives up to its name.
