Here’s every March Madness heartbreaker in a single soulful montage
More like March Sadness, am I right?
I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I watch sports, it’s not about the game. I’m in it for the chance to see grown men weep on live TV—and maybe, if I’m really lucky, some teary-eyed kids who just realized that their idols are capable of failure.
All this misery and more can be had in the NCAA’s March Madness, whose brutal elimination process ensures dashed dreams galore. And now you can relive every soul-shredding moment from the 2015 tournament in one fell swoop, thanks to this lovely compilation. From Notre Dame’s missed buzzer beater against Kentucky to sad Villanova piccolo girl, the anguish is constant, keen, and (almost) completely justified.
It’s so nice that we can get together and share a good cry about nothing sometimes.
