Well, unless you've been residing underneath a nice, cozy rock lately, you're probably well aware that it's time for March Madness. It seems that my Facebook timeline is literally exploding with cheers for or gripes about peoples' favorite NCAA teams. In many homes, this also means that there become temporary "sports widows". Yep. You ladies know what I'm talking about, right? Our men become SO incredibly wrapped up in the frenzy that is March Madness that the only time they're not glued to a screen of some sort is when they need to eat, sleep, work, or use the restroom. (And a lot of men remain glued while working or during "potty time", thanks to the technology found in mobile devices!)
Nowadays, it seems that people are getting connected to their favorite sports action in more ways than ever. Sure, everyone loves a huge HDTV. I know I love our 46" Samsung that we bought at Best Buy a few years ago. In addition to television, people are tuning in using their cell phones, tablets, and laptops, too. With so many devices that provide entertainment, it's hard to choose a favorite.
My husband and I were actually talking about that the other night. Sometimes, he prefers using his iPod Touch to watch movies, YouTube videos and sporting events. He can take it anywhere, so whether we're waiting in a horribly long line at the grocery store or he's having a slow day at work, his iPod is right there to keep him occupied.
I am torn...You see, I love my iPhone while I'm on the go, but I think my MacBook Pro has a slight edge. I guess the blogger in me is used to being glued to my laptop, multi-tasking all day.
I have been known to watch streaming video or YouTube while writing blog posts, checking e-mails and even playing around on Facebook. For me, my MacBook Pro is a natural choice. Since I work online, it kind of feels like "home" to me in a weird way. There is an odd sense of comfort in seeing a zillion tabs open.
So even while I am temporarily married to a sports-crazed zombie who barely looks away from whichever screen he happens to be mesmerized by, I am staying connected, too, thanks to my trusty MacBook Pro.
