The usual March Madness experienced by rabid fans of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament is being heightened this year by another form of madness—the fever-inducing desire for an HDTV to take in the full glory and grandeur of this roundball brawl.

That figure represents around $1 billion in retail sales, or about the same dollar amount that’s being wagered in office pools across the nation. That’s just a guess of course—people might actually be betting twice that much.
