Good thing most people couldn't watch...we might have had many office shootings today.

No, I would have to get a job to do that.

I thought they played in a gym somewhere. Whose work are they playing at?

I try to keep the lemurs from watching basketball on TV. They do enough leaping around without being inspired by the Jayhawks.

I will be watching it at work! I've got one cool boss.


HermioneElliott 5 years, 1 month ago

Of course I am going to be watching it, as I have every Jayhawk game so far. I am anxiously waiting for the brackets to come out. I didn't do that great last year, there are just so many teams to learn about, try as I might, there are always a couple of stats I seem to forget. Rock chalk, Jayhawk, KU!!

I have a big screen in my clubhouse! I can see it from my office chair or I can just go sit on the couch and watch!! This is one big perk that comes with the job.

Yes. We have TV in the lobby for our clients. Very popular this time of the year. But, I have it more for the Masters and the US Open.

And for back ground noise in the lobby.


Mary Darst 5 years, 1 month ago

Yes, I get to watch it. I just hope I get to watch them tomorrow night.

Glad I got all my topics covered in class so they took my final Tuesday instead of today.


G_E 5 years, 1 month ago

The Hawks seem to always play better when I'm not watching, so the fact that I'll be unable to watch the game is probably a good thing.


Ceallach 5 years, 1 month ago

Yes, by using earbuds I can avoid disturbing other staff. That is until I suddenly scream, "Oh, what's the matter with you?" Then, of course, the hawk is out of the bag and I have to calm down and use my office voice.

Yes - we are having a March Madness party and will be able to watch the game from 11:30 - 1:30 with snacks


autie 5 years, 1 month ago

Been practicing driving with them for a month now.


trinity 5 years, 1 month ago

i'd be able to watch it via streaming on the 'net-if i didn't have a dang dentist appointment going on at tipoff! :(

It's why I work the night shift. Makes getting sleep a little tough though.


Donnuts 5 years, 1 month ago

Sometimes if I wanted to; I work at home but also do things in the 'field'. I don't usually follow it. I hear they just won some kind of championship or something?


blue73harley 5 years, 1 month ago

No! Don't turn on the TV! Heed Ben's advice...

"Whenever KU is having trouble, I turn off the TV and listen to the game on the radio. The Jayhawks play better on the radio than they do on the TV."

This is why you are glad you saved up sick and/or vacation time.

This is when you come up with some bull$#!% excuse as to why you need to leave work early.

This is when you hope you have a boss that is as big a fan as you, that you can convince to have a long lunch meeting at a sports bar.
