March Madness: Sometimes Sixteen Isn't So Sweet

This has been, by far, the craziest NCAA tournament I can ever remember. Every single game so far has increased my blood pressure, spiked my heart rate and probably shaved a few years off my life.

What You Need to Know About March Madness

March Madness has nothing to do with the preparations for spring break, daylong drinking holidays like Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day, or studying for midterms. It is about the best three weeks of any sport -- the NCAA Tournament. The best of college basketball. Even if you've never watched a single minute of any game all season, you can still enjoy the Big Dance. It may be the only thing your friends are talking about the next few weeks so it may be a good idea to learn some important terms.

August Madness: I Love the ’90s Final Round

Over the past month, we’ve been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade and we've had the tough job of saying goodbye to some of our personal favorites: Skip-its, Dunkaroos, Super Nintendo, the Olsen Twins, and every blogger's original writing tool, the gel pen. And now, we're down to the FINAL TWO: Cory and Topanga VS. The Spice Girls.

August Madness: I Love the ’90s, Round 6

We’ve narrowed down the best of the best of our favorite decade for the past few weeks and now that we're at the final four, it is starting to get pretty crazy. Like Are You Afraid of the Dark plot line CRAZY. Cory and Topanaga are somehow beating all the odds and climbing their way to the top...

August Madness: I Love the ’90s, Round 5

We’ve been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade for awhile now and it's getting INTENSE. Zack Morris is OUT. Spice Girls are IN. Clinton and Lewisky CREAMED Pam Anderson's sex tape. (OK, bad choice of words....) And somehow, Cory and Topanga are still in the game? WTF?

August Madness: I Love the ’90s, Round 3

We've been narrowing down the best of the best of our favorite decade for over a week now and things are getting serious. I mean, who knew people loved Cory and Topanga more than N*SYNC? I'm sure I'm not the only one who didn't see that coming (but I am now wondering when we'll get a Boy Meets World reunion up in herrrre).

August Madness: I Love the ’90s, Round 2

Thursday we left it up to you to vote on the best recreational things and events from our favorite decade. While we weren't surprised to see Pogs beat out Devil Sticks, we were mouths-on-the-floor shocked to see Monica Lewinsky beat O.J Simpson by a landslide. Guess presidential sex (or whatever Bill called it) outweighs murder these days.

August Madness: Pastimes and Big Events of the ’90s

In a move that shocked no one, 'Salute Your Shorts' creamed 'Hey Dude!' and the majority of you favored Mary-Kate and Ashley to Tia and Tamara. But we were surprised to see Fruit by the Foot breeze past Dunkaroos. What's so special about 3 feet of chewy fruit? Dunkaroos are cookies...dipped in FROSTING. But it's time to exercise your right to vote once again.
