Actor Samuel L. Jackson is a huge sports fan, playing in PGA Tour pro-ams, attending various sporting events, even introducing the Los Angeles Clippers and New Orleans Hornets at home games.
So with a Final Four that included Kentucky, Kansas, Ohio State and Louisville _ in the Big Easy, no less _ yeah, he was going to be there.
"It always comes down to four teams, one and done," Jackson said from his seat in the second row. "There's no four out of seven, none of that mess. It's two hours of show what you're made of, do what you can. That's what makes college basketball so exciting, every game means something. That's why I love college basketball. It's not like the pros, where you're fighting for position and hoping to get to the playoffs."
