March Madness in Las Vegas – The Crowd Goes Crazy

Opening day of March Madness in Las Vegas was a whirlwind of NCAA Tournament upsets, tight games, and back door covers. The crowds at sports books and watch parties  around town were electric – I had the pleasure of taking in a lot of the March Madness in Vegas action in at the Las Vegas Super Book at Westgate – the largest sports book in the world. Along with the games being shown at the world’s largest sports book, the 1,500 seat Westgate Theater hosted the “Hoops Central” watch party. If you are a college hoops  fan, you have to make the trek to Vegas during the opening weekend of March Madness at least once. And if you do, the Westgate Theater watch party has an atmosphere that is second to none.

Here are a few video shots of the theater and sports book crowd during last minute wins/covers of day 1 of March Madness in Vegas.
