March Madness Live Blogging 2014

Oh yeah! It's my favorite sports time of year -- March Madness! And now I'm ready to stream some games!

In case you were wondering, 2006 & 2007 were bare years for me -- no streaming*.  2008-2011? Awesome. 2012-2013? The NCAA decided it could only stream to the USA. Because of all that money they were leaving on the table from TV providers uninterested in showing the games.  But 2014? I've got a proxy, and I'm ready to rumble!

8:00pm - Finished at the gym, got my smoothie and loaded up the Harvard game.  Bring on the upset!

8:01pm - Commercials running fine!

8:05pm - The NCAA, following its policy on dealing with athletes, has decided to screw me.  Why do I say this? Because the goddamn ADS stream fine, but the games? Technical difficulties.  Reload the page aaaaaannnndddd... after the ad? Technical fing difficulty.  Ugh, I hate the NCAA.  First the hypocrisy, now the incompetence.  Asshats. GFY, NCAA.  G. F. Y.

* That I knew of
