NCAA Tournament: The Best Year Ever to Skip Work and Stay Home to Watch?

Some people have birthday parties. Others have Christmas morning. I have March Madness.

I love this time of the year—always have. I know of many people who would tell you that March is actually one of their least favorite months. Can you believe that?

I understand their reasoning. The weather teases you. It could reach 70 degrees one day, only to snow two feet the next. There are no paid days off, and there are 31 days in the month.

Although I get where many of them are coming from, that is not the case if you are a big college basketball fan. How could it be?

And this may be the best college basketball postseason of all time, especially to park yourself in front of a television to watch the games.

So why is this year different from any other? I could go on for days about this, but that would interrupt my television viewing—which I simply cannot allow to happen—but I will do my best to explain why more people may be calling in sick to work than ever!
