So yesterday left a beyond nasty taste in all of our collective mouths, but that doesn't mean we're going to sit back and *do our jobs* on the second day of the tourney, now does it? While Harvard and North Dakota State were amongst the day one darlings, there's still plenty of madness to go around on day two.
Even if you're not lucky enough to have four TVs in your office, you there are still plenty of ways that you can take in the action without having to take off early for work. But if you are able to take a half day, your viewing experience is pretty much guaranteed to be superior. And probably include libations. Take off work/class early. You know you want to.
If you're at your off campus rental house or at the nearest Damon's, you're *probably set*. The action tips off at 12 p.m. ET on CBS, with many of the rest of the games airing on a variety of Turner networks (TBS, TNT, and TruTV). While the glory days of having the viewing experience change for us are gone, the games are far more staggered to the point where especially with the aid of technology, you're only a "LAST" button away from viewing the next potential Texas-Arizona State finish.
For those of us stuck in the office/class, plan B is CBS Sports'/the NCAA's March Madness Live. Simply click this link and fire up a new browser window/tab. And remember, when all else fails, don't forget the boss button.
Live on your smartphone
If you're out running errands, stuck in line at the grocery store, or behind a pretty nasty corporate/education firewall, you're not out of luck. CBS Sports has an NCAA March Madness Live app as well, available for iOS devices (your iPhone, your iPad), an Android version, and even a Windows Phone edition this year.
