It's Motherfucking March Madness
(no I don't count the play-in games, shut up)


Welcome to this year's tournament! 64 teams will be fighting to the death* for your viewing pleasure. As always, the best part of March Madness is the initial orgy of games all going on at once. Let's take a look at today's schedule, courtesy of Yahoo!. I've bolded games I think are important based on the metric of me shrugging and feeling like they're going to be important. Deal with it :smugdog:

Most (all?) games are available online here. Live scoreboard is here. This is the one time of the year that like 75%+ workplaces don't mind if you watch TV online. Take advantage of it!

In conclusion: Let's go Pirates, let's go Anteaters, and at all times, in all ways, gently caress Duke.


e: UC Irvine's mascot is named Peter the Anteater. Their stadium is Anteater Stadium. UC Irvine is going to win the tournament because of this.

MMOD is so loving awesome every year and even kicked rear end back when streaming video wasn't even a huge thing.

How is it the "old person" network has the best streaming thing

I'm consistently floored by the quality and speed, especially because you know everyone in on the Internet right now. All of them. All the people.

Hey computer wizards, is there any way i can block the commercials on the NCAA.com stream, or is there at least some chrome addon I can use to mute them?

The commercials are in-stream instead of being served from a third party so there's probably not much to be done.

Use a multimedia keyboard's mute button? :shrug:
