Sister Jean Is the Star of the 2018 NCAA Tournament
I think it’s safe to say that this year’s NCAA Tournament has lived up to the March Madness moniker. SHIT! Am I going to get sued for writing that? I can never remember. Anyway, it’s also safe to assume that just like no one saw Steph Curry coming the year he broke out, no one saw the meteoric rise of Sister Jean:
My goodness, what a sweet, sweet lady. She is the 98-year-old team chaplain for Loyola-Chicago, but it’s blatantly obvious that she is the key catalyst for this team’s shocking run to the sweet sixteen. I mean, some people had Miami being upset in the first round. Those dang ‘Canes are notorious for not showing up come tournament time. But, who had ’em knocking out that stellar Vols team and getting in to the sweet sixteen?
I’ll tell you who – Sister Jean. But, she had ’em getting bounced in the sweet sixteen. Now, as far as that goes…I believe in the genius of Sister Jean. She knew what this team was capable of, and used her bracket as a motivational tool.
She knew they’d get to the sweet sixteen comfortably, but in order for them to achieve a National Championship, she knew she’d have to keep that chip on their shoulders. This team wants to prove her wrong.
Sister Jean is a brilliant strategist.

Got a little sass about her too. Can’t wait to see which NBA team drafts her to be their team chaplain. It’s time we make her the unquestioned star of March Madness.
