That's why I started my own March tournament event a few years ago. It's called March Nadness because I am creative and original.
There are two tournaments, one for chicks and one for nerds. Chicks play board games like operation and nerds play video games like Atari 2600 Fishing. Gender doesn't matter. Everyone gets drunk and competes for a chance to win The Golden Raccoon or The Other Thing.
I've found it to be way more fun than watching 64 3 hour events that don't matter until the last 5 minutes anyway. I highly recommend throwing a Nadness party to protest the meaningless sports that distract from the only two that matter, hockey and football (American, obviously).
Word of warning: cleaning out your own vomit from a heating duct can be either expensive or gross, depending.
