watch it anyway

For the good of America, Pentagon employees have been instructed not to watch basketball

March Madness might have already begun, but for workers at the Defense Department, watching games will have to wait until after work. The IT service for the Pentagon cautioned employees that "it is important to remember that we share a single network and visiting non-mission essential websites degrades network performance for everyone," CBS News reports.

The email to employees added: "Please keep in mind; if you're streaming video to watch your favorite player shooting free throws, you're consuming network resources that could be served to support the Warfighter." For the good of America, do not turn on Princeton vs. Notre Dame! Don't watch on this one either!

Everyone else, of course, go right ahead.
