Tonight is the Men's NCAA Basketball Championship. The North Carolina Tarheels are taking on the Spartans from Michigan State. I think this game will be a fun one to watch and I'm pretty confident the Tarheels will prevail (as my Father-in-law is hoping and praying!)

While tonight's game will be great, I bring it up to mention that it marks 30 years since Michigan State took on underdog Indiana State for the Title. This was a game to remember as 2 of the greatest "team" basketball players of all time squared off: Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. If you've never had a chance to watch this game - or to see these 2 in action against each other - you should hunt this game down on the Classic channel and take notes!

These are 2 athletes that constantly made the people around them better. Their performance, their attitude, their unselfishness, and their desire to win were amazing. And so every time they hit the floor opposing each other...the potential for something great to happen was through the roof.

The Spartans downed the Sycamores by 12-13 points. I don't think the Spartans will have such luck tonight against the Heels. We'll see.
