    How do you all go about keeping up with the games when you're at work? Do you check scores online or just not worry about the scores til you get home?

    I'm surprised more people around here aren't into the NCAA Touney. It's March Madness for goodness sake.

    Previously we've taken a very long lunch and gone to the sports bar...

    I may do that again this year but for the most part I'll be listening to the games on my Sirius satellite radio. It's good to have a window office. [​IMG]

    I usually check online, as well as have the radio on the sports station. [​IMG]

    I love March Madness, even if my team is not in postseason this year. [​IMG] (Don't get me started on how nobody else in the nation has such a disadvantage due to location and road fatigue. . .)

    You can setup alerts at yahoo but it may cost you money with your mobile provider if they alert you by sms or you can also set by email as well.

    Work? This Thursday and Friday and next Thursday and Friday are good candidates for days off.

    I'm with Rob. For some reason, I get a really bad sinus infection at this time of year. [​IMG]

    We well have a TV setup with games in one part of the office and on the plasmas in the conference room. Too bad we do not have satellite though. All we can do is hope that CBS will show the games we want to see.

    Roll Tide!!! Hopefully the Alabama vs. UW-M game will be good with Bama coming out on top. UW-M's style is going to pose major problems with Bama and our freshman point guard.

    Today's a slow day, but no TV, so I'm just camping on the ESPN Auto-Update sites. When I was at school, I took off every Thursday (and most Fridays) from 6th grade through college [​IMG]
