NCAA tournament means big business for bars
EL PASO — The NMSU Aggies may have been eliminated from this year's NCAA basketball tournament, but March Madness continues. That's good news for local sports bars. Several establishments opened early Thursday to capitalize on sports fans looking for a place to watch the games. A survey recently conducted by MSN and Impulse Resarch shows that seven percent of Americans admit taking time off work to watch the NCAA tournament. With 68 teams competing, there's a lot to root for. After Thursday night 48 teams will remain.
