After being a poor excuse for a Tar Heel fan throughout the year, I promised myself I'd catch every possible Carolina game during March Madness.

At home, I don't have cable, so I generally go out to the bars to catch games. But today, CBS had blacked out the Carolina game in favor of the Washington/Purdue game (no real surprise, since it *is* a West Coast team).

Much to my surprise, ALL the March Madness games are streamed from! The site's using Silverlight to stream the games, and I am pretty surprised at high how quality the video is - it's just like watching TV. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get Silverlight installed on my Mac PPC, so I had to come into the office and watch the game on my office laptop - I hope nobody is on my floor, hearing from the random yells of joy (and anguish) as I watch the Carolina/LSU game.

Kudos to CBS and kudos to the Silverlight team (now please make it work on my Mac!)

We definitely had one game going on a big screen and 3 other games streaming on our laptops from

Too bad UCLA was a big fail this year...

But good luck to NC! :]

the newest version of silverlight required to watch the MMOD games is not compatible with PPC processors. It's quite unfortunate. I tried literally everything this summer go get it to work with my 12" PB while the Olympics were on.
