March Madness is already two days in and if you haven't yet caught the fever yet it's going to happen soon. The First Four games are all wrapped up and the play-ins are set, but the traditional Round of 64 that marks the beginning of the craziness that is the 2012 NCAA Tournament proper will begin on Thursday morning, at 9am PT.
If there's any time in the year that you should 'get sick' and stay home from work, it might be Thursday and Friday. It's probably a little late for this if you haven't yet done it, but as men are doing across the nation in record numbers, hopefully you planned your vasectomy surgery for this morning (clever bastards!), so you can just kick back and watch non-stop college hoops for the next 48 hours or so. If you didn't yet realize it, Thursday and Friday will be wall-to-wall college hoops.
If you weren't so forward thinking, or maybe if didn't want to get a vasectomy, and you're at work but hoping for a way to watch the games online, you'll be quite pleased to know that the NCAA has your back. If you head to the March Madness 2012 official website, you can sign up to have every single game stream live on your computer, smartphone, or tablet for just $3.99. Also, if you receive a cable subscription from one of the eligible providers, be sure to have your account number handy. With it, you'll be able to bypass the $3.99 fee, allowing you to watch all the action online for the low price of free.
CBS Sports will also be streaming live the free games on their official website whenever a game is airing on CBS. If you're overwhelmed with your choices in basketball viewing, head over to SB Nation.com for this easy guide to the best games of the day.
