Yes, the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament was a wild ride. But the best March Madness moment belongs to Iceland.

According to Wikitionary, "NEI" is Icelandic for "NO," which, given Jonsson's shot, makes sense. Not exactly "Rise and fire," but we'll take it.

In a related note, March Madness hasn't been the same since Gus Johnson left. If you're reading this CBS, get this Icelandic announcer on the weekend broadcast.
