Michael Larimer, stand-up comedian, is energized over:

ESPN3 college basketball I have been loving watching the end of all these great college basketball games lately. I refuse to watch a game until there are five minutes left on the clock, which in real time is around a good half hour, if the game is close. You get all the drama you need between two teams you thought you had no emotional investment in. My heart can't help but get involved with these players and coaches fighting for their teams and their careers. Usually by the time the clock has just a few ticks left on it, I am screaming at the TV and have developed a deep-seated hate for a team like Florida A&M and passionate, unbridled love for a team like Delaware State. Some people cry at Hallmark commercials, others while watching ESPN3 on a Thursday afternoon.
