What's your company going to do about March Madness?

It's time for the NCAA basketball tournament, and every year there is a debate on what to do about it. We had a couple people arguing that we "have to" block all tournament content and videos. Others, including myself, took the position that it happens every year, the world doesn't end, business goes on, and we have no complaints about things not getting done, with the exception of one of the same people who wants to block everything, but she gets angry when people talk to each other, so it doesn't take much to set her off. I personally think it give co-workers a chance to share something, most people aren't THAT into it anyway, and the amount of time "wasted" is pretty minimal anyway. Ask around your office and see how many people watched a screaming goat video this month at work. As long as work is done well, I don't really care if there is a screaming vote, sneezing panda or nasty dunk taking place on their screen.
So which approach are you taking: (a) let's see some hoops, or (b) basketball is for unemployed people?
