Gentlemen (and Ladies) Start Your Brackets!!!!!

Let's Get Ready To Gamble!
As employers around the country brace for the annual loss of office productivity known as the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament - Office copiers are running on full blast to copy brackets so Sally in accounting can take the trophy home - AGAIN!
Damn you Sally.
This year, workers distracted by March Madness could cost employers as much as $1.8 billion in unproductive wages during the first week of the tournament, alone. This $1.8 billion in losses is based on just 20 minutes of daily time wasting. One of the reasons March Madness grinds productivity to a halt is that about half of the 32 games on the first two days of the tournament, Thursday and Friday, are played during business hours.
