March is becoming increasingly mad with the conference tournament games delivering peak excitement and thrilling ending after thrilling ending. Some of the crew here who went to schools that have high aspirations in the NCAA Tournament have already ramped it up to 11.

You can't script fans. Unless you're a video game programmer. I guess in that case you are sort of scripting fans. Or if you're coming up with cheers for Boston sports crowds to chant. That's a form of scripting.
