Each year, I look forward to March Madness. I love the excitement of watching teams from across the country vie for the NCAA college basketball Division I championship title.

I’ve have two significant memories of the NCAA Basketball tournament: The first was in 1992, when my school, Howard University, faced Kansas in the first round. Even though we lost 100-62, we still had a big party on campus.

The second memory was when my wife, who was a reporter at the time, got to cover the championship game in 1996 when the University of Kentucky won the title. I tried to figure out a way that I could disguise myself as her and cover the game in her place. Sadly, her dresses didn’t fit. Therefore, I had to watch from home.

If you love college basketball as much as I do, you’ll be excited to hear about a new promotion Supercuts just launched called the Hunt for Houston.

Supercuts is hooking up one lucky winner with a trip for two to Houston from April 1 – 5, 2011. The package includes airfare, four nights’ hotel accommodations, access to the on-court action and $500 in spending money. I encourage you to go to facebook.com/supercuts to learn more about how to enter to win (entry deadline is March 12)

In addition, I’m giving Mocha Dad readers a chance to win a Hunt for Houston Prize Pack on this blog. The pack includes:

  • $20 Supercuts Gift Card
  • $20 Sports Authority Gift Card
  • Desk/Office Basketball Game Set – Hoop/Ball
