We are a big sports family and love to watch pretty much every baseball game that’s ever played from spring break to the World Series. From time to time, my daughter and I will even put on eye black and make hot dogs for dinner, just to make it feel like we’re at the ballpark. And my wife held a special dinner party when pitchers and catchers reported to spring training this year.
But of all the sports we love as family, my wife and daughter are just not that into basketball.
“More basketball?” my daughter agonizes, whenever she finds me watching a game.
The odd thing is, I’m not a huge basketball fan either, but I do love me some March Madness. By the time the collegiate tournament gets down to the Final Four, I’m usually really into it, even if my beloved Michigan is out (likely) or my choices for a friendly pool have already been eliminated (highly likely).
I have a feeling March Madness this year is going to be … challenging. Still, I’ve learned a few things over the years to watch the games in peace while avoiding family … issues. Here are some tips for surviving March Madness in your house.
