A Different Kind of Madness

A Different Kind of Madness For a weekend in the rainy spring of 2014, NCAA’s Final Four rolled into town to complete the annual madness of March. The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, performed for free amidst a carnival and other family-friendly activities. For the 2015 football edition of sporty madness, we get the Playoff Fan Central, featuring Toby Keith and Jake Owen. And not for free. But, fret not, there’s more! Beginning Friday and charging through Sunday, the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center (650 South Griffin St.) will offer up youth sports clinics, interactive games, university marching band performances and other opportunities to not hear Jake Owen sing. So, be true to someone else’s school and enjoy the madness. Doors open at 5 p.m. Friday, 8 a.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. Tickets are $12-$17 and available at collegefootballplayoff.com.
