Best Buy Helps You Catch it All!
It’s funny the things that change and you don’t even realize it. There used to be a time when I would plug my ears and repeat “La-La-La-La-La” whenever anyone started talking about a ball game that I hadn’t watched yet. That was back in the day when we had to set our VCRs to record it and watch it when we got home. When we first started playing Fantasy Football in the early 1990’s (via Compuserve), I would sit down with the newspaper the following day with paper and pencil in hand. One by one I would figure out who on our fantasy team had scored points then who on the opponent’s team had. (Or to keep my brother “the commissioner” honest.) It was kind of fun to figure out what was happening. The same held true for other sports, too. Back in those days, March Madness meant cutting the great big empty bracket out of the local newspaper and hanging it up on a wall in the breakroom. After each game, we would update the results of the games we had watched then would use the newspaper to update all the rest.
It sure is different now. Our local newspaper doesn’t even print the bracket any more! Thanks to social media, smart phones, tablets, laptop computers and TVs with 24/7 sports channels, it’s pretty difficult to actually miss something. Best Buy has referred to it as Multi-Screen Entertainment but I prefer to call it “Multi-Screen Madness”.
Our TV is web-enabled and we are DirecTV subscribers so any time we want to watch a game, we know we can. My phone is almost always with me so I can look scores up whenever I want also. But my favorite way to keep up to date on scores and what is happening is with my iPad. I easily grab it and look something up on the web or via a sports or news app. There are a multitude of apps available and I can even turn on push notifications so it updates me automatically! Of course, social media is king for staying in the loop. Seriously… I seldom have to look anything up because my friends are usually YELLING about all of the exciting stuff through Facebook. Owning a tablet is hands-down the most convenient piece of technology that I own. Not only am I able to use it for research but I’m also easily able to create blog posts, edit photos, surf the web, communicate with others and share information on social media.
If you don’t own a tablet but have been thinking about getting one, check out the selection and promotions available. Best Buy helps keep you connected to the excitement with the devices and connectivity that make it possible: Brought to life by the brand promise of the latest devices and services, all in one place.
Stay up to date with the Catch it All promotions or all the latest news by following Best Buy on Twitter. You don’t want to miss out on all the excitement, do you?
Now be honest and tell which you prefer: Watching favorites progress through the tournament or seeing underseeded teams throw everyone’s brackets into disarray?

your local paper doesn’t print the brackets? WHat!! that’s crazy. ours would never not do it- but ct is small and uconn is a big deal
I love to watch all of the games on my laptop …coincidentally I got from best buy (I got a great deal too)
I would be lost without my tablet, I use it a lot in my blogging!
I’m not sure which I’d prefer watching. Great question!
I really really really need to get a tablet! I didn’t realize that I can do my blogging from the tablet. I like Best Buy because I have a rewards card there and they have good deals too!
We like Best Buy, Basketball not so much.
I’m not big on keeping up with the stats of if it all but, I have to say, I do love the underdog.
That is a good question, that I don’t have an answer for. LOL! I love watching games with the guys in my life.. mostly because they enjoy it.. oh and because it’s a great excuse for me to cook up yummy treats! We’re a tablet addicted family here 😉
I’m not a big sports person; so I actually LOVE seeing people’s brackets get thrown into disarray! It’s just entertaining to me to see sports enthusiasts freaking out about it. lol. I’m horrible.
I definitely love seeing the underdogs break the brackets. That is why I am about to root for Dayton to win in about 5 minutes! lol
I love my iPad for watching movies and games like that.. on the go and at home, always the best..thanks for sharing, love Best Buy, always check in and see what the newest Tech items they have that I HAVE to Have..lol
What I really like is seeing everyone post their bracket results! #hilarious! Upsets are my favorite part of March Madness.
WE are all set up with gadgets over here! Definitely won’t miss much. 😉
I’m not really a sports fan, but I’d love to get a new tablet for myself for other things! Best Buy always has a great selection.
We aren’t march madness people – but I love using my tablet for TV when I’m working out.
I’m not into sports, but I have seen my husband watching a game on the tv and checking the score for another game on our tablet before!
We dont watch basketball but we sure do stay connected! We love our computers, tvs, tablets, and smartphones!
We don’t watch college sports these days, but when do watch sports it’s on our TV. We have lots of gadgets over here, so we are always connected.
We have a tablet, but really should upgrade. Best Buy is where I would buy it at too!
I definitely want to see my team win. But if they go out I like seeing any team beat the teams I don’t like…especially whoever knocked my team out.
I agree, Best Buy is great. I shopped there for Christmas presents and I also got my laptop there. I’m probably going to be picking up some new technology from them very soon.
I don’t watch basketball much but I’m definitely guilty of watching more than one screen at a time!
Look at all of these non sports fans! I think it’s our husbands that watch all of the sports. I will share this article with him.
We are not sports junkies here either….yet! I expect that to change as my son gets older 🙂 But we do love Best Buy for all our gadgets 🙂
Thanks for the blast from the past and the review of the best of the future. Also, just want to tell you that the design for your web-site is really steam-lined and appealing! Have a good day!
My hubby has the greatest skill with brackets – but we’re not big techies. Still, hoping someday I can get him a nice tablet or something to do it on!
I like to see the upsets, to see the underdogs win
I would love a tablet of my own .
I LOVE my tablet – it stays with me pretty much all the time!
Owning a tablet for me has been godsend! Business is much easier now that I can be mobile. LOVE it. Nice post by the way 🙂
I always like the underdog!
The hubby would be thrilled about this, he is a basketball junkie.
I love Best Buy! We just got a smart TV from there in February and its where we get all our electronics!
