Seems to be a roundball world lately. March Madness ended just in time for the NBA playoffs to start. It’s enough to make one suspect there’s a conspiracy afoot to keep sports fans from leaving the recliner to experience real world diversions like family and friends.
Every American adult winces when they see or hear the date, “April 15th.” Sadly, some folks housebound by the Spring Snow Smackdown compounded their misery by working on their taxes as the winds howled outside.
Basketball fans know when spring really starts: the day the March Madness brackets get released. That jubilation only lasts until the first two or three games are finished and the first major upset happens. Poof! There goes your bracket!
Yes, it’s Thanksgiving week in the U.S., which means cheap TVs for sale on Friday. And, of course, giving thanks for the family and friends who invade your house and make fun of your current TV while switching to the football game they want to watch.
