March Madness and
The Spring Equinox

This weekend is the start of Spring and the annual college March basketball marathon, as we all know as "March Madness".

It will be Saturday morning at 5:57 A.M. the science tells us the spring equinox will start to occur. Our days and nights will be approximately twelve hours long, with daytime length increasing and nighttime length decreasing as the season progresses.

The NCAA college basketball spectical started Thursday and continues for the next few weeks. Matt Norlander of CBS explains it this way.

"It's hard to fathom that it's been nearly two years since college basketball fans have had the joy of watching the NCAA Tournament take place in March. But after an extremely difficult year for the world because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 version of the contest is on track and set to begin on Friday with the First Four. All 68 teams have made the trip to Indiana in preparation for the three-weeks of fun and excitement.

This time of year brings us the time-honored tradition of brackets -- the best way to enjoy the action and madness of March. And while digitally filling out a bracket has become a staple, a lot of people still like the enjoyment of writing it out with pen and paper. As is always the case, CBS Sports has you covered with our printable bracket and some online games to compete against your friends.

You can also find the bracket in just about every way possible on your device of choice, which can help you prep for all our Bracket Games as well. Expanded coverage continues all week on and CBS Sports HQ, our free 24/7 news streaming service that is watchable on any streaming device."

Enjoy your weekend everybody as we start to roll out our new weekend normal.
