I have been fortunate to be part of this event for 6 straight years and the lead reporter covering the National Championship since 2009. I like covering this event for the same reason the fans like watching it. There is something so unique about the tournament. First off it's a month long. Second, I love the hype in the weeks leading up as to who is in and who is out. Then, teams punch their tickets to the dance and you have some who expect to be there and others you've never heard of. Storylines and ties in each matchup, Cinderellas looking to keep their historic run alive, stars are born, careers are made, stories written and of course there is that ONE SHINING MOMENT. Every year before the tournament CBS holds an NCAA Tournament two day seminar. They start it by playing last year's One Shining Moment video and every time, I shed a tear. That's why this is my favorite time of year!
