The big dance is officially underway after the first games of the NCAA Tournament are in the record books. No matter how you're bracket is holding up so far, one thing is certain, fans are sure having a good time.
Buffalo Wild Wings in Wausau was packed Thursday night for round two of the tourney. Some fans, like Tony Hermann, staked out their spot early coming in at 10:00am. Hermann drove all the way from Lodi, that's just outside of Madison, to watch the games with life-long friends. The trip has been a March Madness tradition for him for the last four years.
"It's about both basketball and being with friends, enjoying yourself," Hermann says. "You know I get to see these guys four or five times a year. So just to get back and be with friends, it's a great time."
While Hermann says he didn't skip work to enjoy the games, Buffalo Wild Wings Managers tell us, based on the crowd size, they're sure a number of fans did, especially for the Badger game.
