NCAA Tournament Bracket 2013: March Madness Dates, Times And Television Schedule

The NCAA Tournament Brackets have been released, and Boston Super Blog has you covered from the first round to the Final Four. Make sure to check back early and often leading up to the tip-off from the opening games through the most exciting days of the year on Thursday and Friday for all of the upset predictions and Final Four picks.

But this article is not to help you pick the games and upsets as you fill out your brackets. This is to help you decide how much time you need to take off of work. Depending on your schedule, I always found it was just easy to call out sick for both full days on Thursday and Friday. Believe me, I have come up with some great excuses in the past while managing to get paid to stay home and watch the entire first two full days of the NCAA Tournament. Let’s just say that March Madness is my time of year.

But suppose you have a more important job and cannot take off much time. Maybe you can only take enough time to step out of the office and catch your favorite team’s game. You have come to the right place, as Boston Super Blog has you covered with the complete schedule for the first few days with the complete schedule, including dates and times and television channels. Check it out!
