    Talking March Madness On Demand

    Just got an e-mail instructing me to sign-up now to get my VIP pass so I can watch the games online, as I requested the reminder when I signed-up for it last year. :)

    NCAA March Madness on Demand - NCAA.com

    I guess March Madness isn't that far away.

    Re: March Madness On Demand

    You could have stopped at "best 2 days of the year"! Actually it's the best 4 days of the year. Even though the matchups get better the next weekend, the mass quantity of games in the first 4 days trumps that.

    That Thursday and Friday are the two greatest sporting days of the year, as well as the best two days to skip what you're supposed to be doing. Not that I've ever skipped work/school to do it...

    Even better that St. Patrick's Day and spring break usually fall somewhere in there, too! 96 hours of college basketball, warmer weather (usually), spring break, and green beer. What more could a guy want?

    Re: March Madness On Demand

    Thank you. Now I have a VIP pass. I can't wait until the NCAA tournament starts. That is probably my favorite day of the year, excluding Christmas.

    Those 2 days have to be the least productive work days of the year.

    It's happy and sad...nothing but pro baseball from the end of Madness until September (excluding a day of bliss watching the Spring game in April).

    I have a feeling this is going to reduce the amount of attention I pay to professors during afternoon classes
