Hockey playoffs!

If you don’t follow the NHL during the regular season, this is our pitch to encourage you to tune in for the post-season. There is arguably no sport more exciting to watch, especially during the playoffs. The enthusiasm of the crowds is unmatched in any other sport, as is the effort of the players. Even if you don’t have a favorite team, give it a chance this year. You’ll have a favorite sport if you do.

NCAA Tournament March Madness Television Viewing Guide

We’re stoked about the NCAA Tournament! However, in recent years, nothing has been worse than trying to turn on the television to catch the last minute of a tie game only to have no idea what channel it was on because it was being shown on a station you only watch a couple weeks of the year. Fortunately, USA Today has provided a handy guide we can all reference so that the horror we just described doesn’t happen to you. Happy tourney watching!
