Mr. March Madness: The Preview

March is a great month. Not only because it ushers in the start of spring, but because of March Madness, the greatest sporting event of the year.

There are many reasons why March Madness is great. The endless basketball, the great games, the upsets, and the the buzzer-beaters. But there is one thing that ties all of these great reasons together, and that one thing makes all of those reasons infinitely better.

Gus Johnson.

That's it, that's all.

Seriously, March should be honored as "National Gus Johnson Month". All the upsets, all the buzzer-beaters, all the great tournament moments would not be the same without the narration of Gus-Jeezy.

In honor of his contribution to March Madness, B.I.A.H will be counting down the 10 greatest calls from Gus Johnson. Now, not all of the clips are from March Madness, but all of them are instant-classics.

Finding the best Gus Johnson clips was not hard. But trying to rank them was damn-near-impossible.

To prep you for the countdown, we've decided to provide you with some of Gus-Jeezy's best non-basketball calls.

Kimbo Slice get's KO'd

You all know who Kimbo Slice is, and you all know who Gus Johnson is. So it makes perfect sense that magic was made when they shared the same screen.

Brandon Stokley and the "Immaculate Deflection"

Is there ever a time when Gus Johnson isn't involved with something ridiculous?

Chris Johnson runs from the cops

Only Gus-Jeezy can get away with saying something like that.

"My name is Al Harrington, and I get buckets"

I cannot tell you how many times I have used this phrase, inserting my name for Al Harrington's.

Rise and Fire

Quite possibly the greatest mixtape in the history of YouTube.

Over the next two days we will be dropping the top-10 Gus Johnson calls, so stay tune.
