Reinforcing the trend I noticed last week, college basketball fans from Connecticut and Kentucky were the most enthusiastic about finding tickets for the NCAA Finals following their teams' advancement to Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX, this weekend.
The two states were among the ones that sent a very high amount of visits to TicketNetwork.com in the two hours following the Huskies' and Wildcat's wins in the East and Midwest Regional Finals on Sunday. In addition, and not surprising given the proximity to the host venue, Texas also had high visit activity, especially once Connecticut won.
I put together the time-lapse heat map video below, which follows visit activity to tournament-related pages on TN.com, from the beginning of the South Regional Final on Saturday to past the end of the Midwest Regional on Sunday.
Happy April Fool's Day! I'm not sure if that's a thing people say, but whatever.
I will admit I'm not a huge fan of April Fool's Day — if only because I, myself, hate being pranked. But I do love seeing other people get pranked (at least I admit it, guys) so I've been intrigued by the plethora of April Fool's Day jokes happening across the internet.
Some were so good you wished they were real, while others were so bad you're sorry you heard about them (Vegemite energy drinks, anyone). In case you missed them...

Hope you made it through April Fool's Day relatively unscathed!
