Wow, I can imagine your brackets are as messed up as mine. I have two March Madness final four teams gone (including the champion) in one of my brackets (Thanks Michigan State and Baylor Universities), while my other bracket is still breathing with three final fours remaining.
Even with a grand total of 10 wins by double-digit seeds, everyone is itching to see some more dramatic collegiate ball. The sweet 16 begins tonight and there are plenty of places around Lake County to watch the games.
Before you find your seat and maintain that post until the games are over while drinking some delicious Lake County suds, you should head over to Libertyville Sports Complex. They are holding the Sixth Annual Free-Throw Challenge from now until Tuesday, March 29.
The championship match for each age group will occur the weekend of March Madness’ Final Four. So you can go home a champion while watching two teams advance to the NCAA Championship. Bragging rights are a beautiful thing. Create your own March Madness in Lake County
I challenged former Director of Marketing Anthony Haag that I would beat his 8-of-10 office record he posted two years ago. The results of my efforts are in this video below.
