Boss Button Key to Watching March Madness

So March Madness is finally upon us. College basketball is going to dominate the lives of many a sports fan for the next few weeks. But what to do when something like, oh say, work, gets in the way? Well CBSSportsLine and the NCAA have teamed up for March Madness on Demand for Live Game Video.

Office workers can now waste more of the boss's time and money by watching games on their computers. (Blackout rules apply -- local games that are shown on TV aren't available -- but hey it's better than nothing.) And the best part is that it's absolutely free.

There's usually a waiting list to get into the video room, but once you're in, visitors select from available games. And as extra added protection against the powers-that-be at work, the March Madness Screen has a "Boss Button" -- a sort of panic button for office workers -- click the button and an Excel spreadsheet pops up and the volume is muted. Ingenioius.

**On another note, it's puzzling why CBS would choose to cut away from the exciting San Diego State/Indiana game for the sloppy and kinda boring Utah State/Washington game...
