    This is why I take the 1st two days of the tournament off

    Three last second, do-or-die, win-or-go-home games in a little over an hour, with one of them being a major upset. Will Princeton make it a 2nd on the day?

    I don't care that my bracket already looks like a mess. This is good stuff!!

    I agree. This the first time I've taken these two days off in quite some time. It used to be a ritual when I had some expectations of ISU playing, and I kinda got away from it. In the era of Freddie, I supposed I had better get used to it again.

    I took the whole week off to get ready for the madness. The upsets are great to watch.

    Morehead State beating Louisville was one upset I had no expectation of happening, same with Princeton over Kentucky, which is still up for grabs at the moment.

    This is my 5th straight year sitting here watching every game. I love this too much!

    Of course, I'm working on some thesis stuff while I watch this year, but it's all good.

    Oh, I won't. It was just menial, clerical stuff. Nothing that involved the brain.

    Tonight will be the first time I haven't called in or scheduled this night off since 2006 (because I don't need to).

    I love March Madness!!

    I'm with ya. At work (I've been there since 2002) people ask me in about January when these days are, because they know by now, I will not be there.

    I have these days until I die, retire or (have to) find something else. If it's the latter, it's only a matter of time before they figure it out. This is Christmas to me.
