March Madness!!

Bob is going to spend the next four days immersed in March Madness (NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament). Again this year all four games are on different networks (CBS, TNT, TBS, TruTV). A few years ago when we had DirecTV in our old sticks and bricks Bob signed up for "Mega March Madness" from DirecTV which was basically the same thing but you had to pay for the option plus you were at the mercy of CBS who sometimes switched games so the same game may have been on all four channels. This happened enough to be annoying.

With the four networks on DirecTV and all in HD Bob can control which game he watches and catch all the exciting endings which is bound to happen. Bob finds himself cheering for the underdog even though it may damage his bracket. It will also be nice this year as his alma mater, Iowa State, is in the tourney for the first time since 2005.

Another good thing about being in Arizona in March is that the idiotic daylight savings time does not go into effect here. What that means for March Madness is that the games today and tomorrow tipoff a little after 9:00 a.m. local time which means Bob won't be up after his bedtime tonight because he gets to do this all over again tomorrow.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
