So you couldn't get out of work to stay at home and watch all the March Madness basketball games you can possibly consume, so you chose to do the next best thing: watch the action at work (and try to not get caught).
Well, the NCAA has your back. Sort of.
College basketball fans who don't want to miss out on the latest games can watch them live on Internet connected computers to their heart's content. That is, until the boss comes around.
That's why the webmasters at NCAA.com developed the Boss Button. It redirects the user to a search page with links and results and another button that asks, "where are you hiding?"
The choices available on the map displayed upon clicking are "home," "work," and "class."
Clicking "work" takes users to a Google Docs style presentation page filled with slides, pictures, words, and more to give your screen the appearance of being "hard at work".
The other two links load pages related to their own category.
But hopefully users won't have to stay on these pseudo-productivity pages for long, and can therefore return to the games (work) at hand.
So stay strong bracket-makers and game watchers, and may the (billion dollar) odds be ever in your favor.
