March is here and it’s time for NCAA Bracket Madness!

This is the time of the year when the NCAA Basketball is in the spotlight, March Madness kicks off this Tuesday, March 14th with action extending through April 3rd.

What you need to know about March Madness 2017 Tournament:

Do you know why it is called March Madness? It seems that the term can be tracked back to 1939 when an official at the Illinois High School Association wrote an article titled “March Madness” term that he used again three years later, however, it was not until 1982 when CBS broadcaster Brent Musburger used it during the network’s NCAA tournament coverage that it gained national popularity, and the rest is history.

Is it really madness? According to a study by Challenger, Gray & Christmas it is estimated that businesses in America lose close to $2 billion in productivity as their workers spend their time doing research and making their picks for their brackets. Madness!
