During March 65 college basketball teams will qualify for a series of elimination rounds that take place over three weeks in various U.S. cities culminating in one NCAA championship game. The exciting time of this championship series has become known colloquially as March Madness.
Magazines.com understands the pure exhilaration that is the "madness" of the championship tournament and is featuring significantly discounted magazine subscriptions to the best-selling sports magazines like ESPN The Magazine , Sports Weekly, The Sporting News, Slam, Dime and Basketball Digest for die-hard basketball fans everywhere.
The name March Madness was first coined by writer H.V. Porter in 1939 describing an Illinois High School team and became popular again in the 1980s when sportscaster Brent Musburger described on-air the NCAA tournament as "March Madness." For 2009 14 cities will host March Madness games including Greensboro, NC; Kansas City, MI; Philadelphia, PA; and Portland, OR.
