Greetings to you from NCAA basketball season! Productivity is decreasing as we speak as millions of people log on to websites where we, uh, they can watch the games live via streaming media and keep up with how we’re, uh they’re doing in the March Madness pool. This, this is the reason we invented the Internet!

You can keep tabs at the NCAA’s official site (men’s here and women’s here) and, when you’re not busy doing that, there’s a whole gang of basketball-related books – for kids and for grownups – to put on display this season.
