March Madness By the Numbers

I came across this interesting bit of stats about March Madness while watching all the tournament games. Fascinating to see the impact of the most exciting month of basketball.

I could write a whole blog on what this should really mean for the players…(oh wait, I did.)

With tonight being the championship game, take a look at the tournament's impact:


•       $1.9 Billion – Hourly losses by companies due to unproductive workers during March Madness. 

•       $9 Billion – Estimated amount wagered on the 2015 NCAA tournament ($7 billion illegally).

•       81% – Of HR professionals say their organizations don’t have policies addressing office pools.

•       2X – Easier to win back-to-back Mega Millions lotteries than it is to fill out a perfect bracket.

•       17.5 Million – Barrels of American beer produced each March, compared to an average of 14M in all other months.

  • My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend who broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all I could to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, I searched properly and I saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and I insisted on giving it a try by contacting him via what’s app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will be held Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
