Last week, here in the United States, we had the finals of what is called March Madness, the college basketball championship. The students of the winning team are still basking in the glory of that final basketball game. Congratulations and pats on the back are still being given to the players. Although they want to hold on to that special moment, it quickly fades. The coaches are already thinking about recruiting new players and making plans for all the other aspects of next season.
