Sportsradio KJR Stops The Dance
One thing would remain through the years from that crazy time, "The Dance". The Dance was originally known as "The Bigger Dance" until the NCAA called in a copyright violation. It would consist of a field of 64 females that were bracketed (names not the actual girls). It would start the after the last game of the actual Final Four.. The reason I participated was the prize. The winner would receive a trip to any sporting event in the world. My choice. would have been the Le Mans Grand Prix. The contest would get bigger, growing with internet coverage. In each contest, caller would say their choice. More and more, women were participating. Their would always be a meet and greet at some bar, where the fans could go into a booth and vote for one of the "final four". The winner would be know as the "the queen of the hardwood".
Last few years, the excitement wore down and I predicted to demise would be near and sure enough, there was no "The Dance" in 2015. The contest, after more than maybe a decade and a half, had run it's course.
