It’s arguably the best part of the tournament, the part many look most forward to, the famous “One Shining Moment” video. The song is as synonymous as any song is with a specific moment in sports. It’s right up there with NBA on NBC song (if you’re too young to understand this reference, I feel very sorry for you) or the Masters tune (coming up next week).
As soon as the tournament ends, that buzzer sounds and my immediate thought is to One Shining Moment. It’s like the NCAA has run the Pavlov’s dog experiment on the entire country. The whistle blows, the confetti comes down and all of us start salivating at the mouth, humming the tune, eyes fixed on the TV, waiting for the greatest two minutes in sports behind the Kentucky Derby.
So if you missed it, here is the 2019 One Shining Moment video,

Kudos to the CBS video editing staff that puts the final touches on this thing in a span of 15-20 minutes following the final buzzer, including footage from the final game, the celebration and everything. Those people don’t get enough credit, so shout out to them. A great cap off to a great tournament. Till next year, happy March Madness.
