It’s Selection Sunday. Arguably one of the holiest days in a sports fan’s year.

If you were to make the argument about why sports are like religion, Selection Sunday is probably at least talking point number three.

Now in regards to how to physically prepare yourself to watch the selection show, I personally suggest doing whatever you can to relax yourself. NIT selection can be stressful.

Maybe try to find yourself a soothing candle. Then, pop in that new Future album, “HNDRXX.” Maybe listen to the song “Incredible” a few times. Allow it to remind yourself about the caliber of a tournament in which you will be viewing in the future. That should keep you calm, as you await tonight’s selection show.
