    I wondered if you meant basketball or kids a day away from spring break...

    Sorry to hear that. Wisconsin doesn't play until tomorrow; unfortunately the game is at the same time as Purdue's, so I won't be seeing it here in IN. :(

    There were some amazing games this afternoon! I really enjoyed the Villanova-Robert Morris game and was disappointed that Robert Morris lost (even though I have Villanova going to the Sweet Sixteen). I love it when there are upsets (unless it is Syracuse being upset!). Hopefully the rest of the games will be as entertaining!

    ama-you can watch any game live here.

    Yeah--it just falls at a bad time: dismissal! I was hoping I could DVR it and watch it when I got home. Instead, I'll be rushing to catch the second half...

    The March Madness games that you want to see most always seem to come at the worst times, don't they? That's just about the only thing I don't like about first weekend of March Madness!

    I'm usually around 13-3 after day 1 of the tourney. This year I'm 7-9!! ESPN got 4.7 million bracket entries--56 of them are still perfect after Thursday! I don't know how even 56 people called those games right! GO VOLS!

    This tournament has been unbelievable! That was so exciting! I didn't believe it would really happen until there was about 30 seconds left.

    I do get sad when I see the players of any losing team, though. It's a pity that every team in the tournament besides one has to end the season on a loss.

    Does anyone know why #23 on Kansas was so inconsolable? Of course it was very sad for them all but was there a special reason he was so upset?

    I'm so excited that Syracuse won today! Also, I couldn't believe how well Cornell played and that there are two teams from Central New York in the Sweet Sixteen!

    Was he a Sr?!? I was wondering the same thing.

    This has been a GREAT weekend of BBall. Haven't even watched a full game, but the last 2-3 mins in all of them have been so exciting!!!

    Btw - I love how St. Mary's has been playing. I have never watched them before, but I absolutely love how they play together as a team. I have never seen a team pass the ball so fluidly before!

    HIS TEAM was supposed to win the National Title and a team
    from Neptune:woot: beat his. A team NO ONE ever heard of. His team was the over all #1 seed. The impossible happened and it happened to him in a BAD way.

    Even though I have Ohio St and West Va in the finals how amazing would it be to see Cornell and N. Iowa in the finals.
    Now I know a UK fan will take me to task for the blasphemy of suggesting Kentucky would lose to Cornell.

    I win any way it shakes out. I love watching the little guys
    beat the famous ones. If Tenn and UK get to the final four and one wins I crow about the SEC. If they get knocked out soon
    I say at least UF won back to back for the SEC recently. Tenn. has NEVER gotten to the elite eight so that is a HUGE game today with OSU for them.

    I love the upsets...tiny little 'David' schools up against the Goliaths like Syracuse and winning...that cute cute 'boy' who was making the foul shots against Syracuse- he looked like he was about 12...you gotta love it...that's why they call it March MADNESS. :)

    I agree with you and love the upsets...except when it's Syracuse being upset! I'm over it now, though, and would love to see Butler win the whole thing!

    No, no, no. No Duke. Please.

    I'm not a team-hater in general--they're all made up of a bunch of young guys who just want to be the best they can on the court--but after this season, I just can't take a Duke championship.
