Fans Flock to San Jose for NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
NCAA championships came when I moved to Champaign, Illinois in 1971 and I have never seen anything like that level of excitement and obsession about basketball since I moved back to California. But when I got off light rail in downtown San Jose yesterday I picked up on a very heightened adrenalin level.
This group had a friendly rivalry going on with a lot of pom-pom pushing.
This group was unanimous in their allegience.
These guys started to rattle off the rankings (I believe they said UNM was 8th, "Nationally."
Non-partisan paper salesman. I hope the NCAA tournament was good for his business as well as other businesses downtown.
