Good Morning, it’s Monday, 12 March 2018 and this is the Morning Edition of The Nightshift.
It’s on: March Madness is here. Last night, the NCAA selected the teams to play for the men’s collegiate national basketball championship. Four teams were given Number One seeds: Virginia, Xavier, Kansas, and Villanova. Did your team make the Big Dance? Here’s a link to the NCAA playoff brackets. Tournament play starts tomorrow. Office bracket pools start today. Hop to it and good luck.
Daylight savings time started yesterday. Be careful driving or just going through the daily routine today and for the next couple of weeks. The time change is a bigger deal than most suspect.
Today is National Girl Scout Day. Support the Girl Scouts and, if you haven’t already, buy some cookies.
