NCAA Tourney Time & Tourney Goes “Green”!

Today the NCAA Men’s Basketball tournament begins and for the first time ever, I’m not sure I’ll watch much. This is in part because I’m about 10 days away from releasing a huge newly-redesigned web site for an organization I volunteer for (More on that on release day: March 31st), in part because one the web site is done, I have eight million things to catch up on (like blogging!!), and in part because we still are choosing not to have network television.

Oh, Matt has a plan for purchasing a streaming telecast of the tournament, and hopefully it will work out better than my attempt to watch the Oscars online (they put all the pre-Oscar stuff online, but not the event itself!). But still, I’m not sure it will be quite the same as in years past where we TiVo-ed the key games, looked forward to them all day, etc. I’m not sure we can actually watch the games after they’ve occurred, which will put a major damper on our viewing since we often have to get up in the evening to take the pup out, tend to the children, etc.

In other NCAA basketball news, I got this email from the Sierra Club this morning about the greening of the NCCA tourney:

But if you’re a fan of a clean energy future, you can root for the 24 schools that have signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, pledging to go climate neutral. See who’s on the list and follow their progress at
