If you're like many workers around the country, you've spent at least part of your work week planning your NCAA Men's Basketball brackets already.
They call this time of year March Madness because of the upsets that happen. The name is also fitting for the way college basketball fans feel when denied the chance to watch their favorite teams because of the demands of their jobs.
If you haven't already filled out your brackets, don't worry. You still have plenty of time for all of the online contests since points for Tuesday's games aren't included in most of the contests.
Tuesday's games are in the books and I have one win and one loss. According to coverage on Examiner.com, No. 11 seed St. Mary's topped No. 11 seed Middle Tennessee, 67-54.
Fans here in Lynchburg were sad to see No. 16 seed Liberty University lose to No. 16 seed North Carolina A&T, 73-72.
With 68 teams in this year's NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, there are four play-in games. Two were played on Tuesday and the other two will be played on Wednesday.
As for the madness, many Kentucky Wildcats fans were upset and disappointed when their team didn't win a bid to the NCAA Division I Tournament and were sent instead to the lower-bracket NIT.
On Tuesday, No. 1 seed Kentucky lost in the first round of the NIT to No. 8 seed Robert Morris, 59-57. One of the best things about college basketball in March is watching the upsets.
There are some of us who feel that Thursdays and Fridays, the days when many of the men's games will be played, should be holidays for the rest of March.
Since that probably won't ever happen, the next best thing is the fact that nearly everyone who wants can keep up with the day's action on their mobile devices.
Louisville took the overall No. 1 seed for the NCAA Tournament. The other three No. 1 seeds went to Gonzaga, Indiana and my favorite, Kansas.
The men aren't the only ones involved in March Madness. The NCAA Division I Women's Tournament is also taking place this month.
Baylor, Stanford, Connecticut and my favorite, Notre Dame were awarded the No. 1 seeds in the Women's Tournament.
While the men's games will be played Thursday through Sunday for the next two weeks on the road to the Final Four, the women's games will be played Saturday through Tuesday.
The Women's Final Four games will take place April 7 and 9 in New Orleans. The Men's Final Four games will be held April 6 and 8 in Atlanta.
So get out your pencil or pen or go online and pick your teams to be a part of the March Madness fun. You can follow all of the March Madness results at the links above.
