With the start of the NCAA and 12 hours of first round action on Thurs/Fri, how often will you be trying to parts of games on tv, the internet, etc (assuming you work during the day).

I'll be coming back from appts in Peoria and will have to stop at some towny bar on the way to catch my team in the early afternoon.

We're playing friday afternoon, so the odds of me doing anything post lunch are not good.

For me, it holds no interest, so, yea, like Avengefire, it will be business as usual.

Although I'm more of a football guy, I love March Madness. I anticipate I'll have ESPN or CBS Sportsline's realtime scores minimized at the bottom of my screen. That's the problem with this time of the year, though...it really does hinder me from doing more productive things at work.

Like looking at porn, for example.

I'm now unemployed, so the answer is "not at all".

Well I just got laid off a couple hours ago so not too productive. On the bright side, I can schedule my job search around basketball games the next couple weeks.

You too, eh? I'm very curious to see the March numbers when they come out. The layoffs are coming on at a crazy pace right now.

DePaul didn't make it so other than glancing at my bracket every once and a while, I won't be any less productive than usual.
