Canada has its own college basketball tournament with its charms and heroes, but we mustn’t let national pride blind us to the obvious: that the annual NCAA hoops tournament has surpassed even the Super Bowl as the premiere obsession for fanatics and fair-weather fans alike. So staggering is the monthlong orgy of underdogs, overpaid coaches, recruiting violations and office gambling that who eventually wins is altogether moot. It’s enough to make One Shining Moment, the song that concludes the tourney every year, nearly tolerable. Aaron Wherry
