TVs are located at the bar area where viewers can have the best of everything: food, drinks, and BASKETBALL!

I dutifully filled out my bracket sheet at work today despite the fact that I don't know the first thing about college basketball these days. Too many games, too many teams. My pick to win it all....San Diego State. Maybe I'll get lucky!

Hands down it would have to be the Men's NCAA Basketball Tournament aka March Madness. Why do I love it so much?      Nature of the College Game.

Since its 1939 inception it has built a legacy that includes dynasty teams and dramatic underdog stories. In recent years, friendly wagering on the event has become something of a national pastime, spawning countless office pools that attract expert fans and novices alike. All games of the tournament are broadcast on the CBS broadcast television network in the United States, except for the opening round (also known as the play-in) game, which aired on TNN in 2001, and ESPN since 2002.
