Chances are, you've probably heard of March Madness and its bracket challenge. If not, the short version is that the 64 best NCAA Men's Division I college basketball teams are ranked and arranged in a bracket that shows two teams entering a game and only one moving on to the next round. Once the top 64 teams are announced and ranked, fans can fill out their own version of the bracket, effectively predicting who is going to win each game. If someone accurately predicts every single game in all six rounds (which is incredibly rare), they win the bracket challenge.
How does this relate to the Adirondacks, you're probably wondering? In the spirit of March Madness, Outside Magazine has recently begun May Madness, but this time it isn't an NCAA Championship that's on the line - it's the coveted distinction of being "America's Best Town."
