With so many games so cruelly scheduled on weekday afternoons, you can't always kick back and enjoy a full game. USA Today launched a mobile app last month that alerts users to the most exciting moments of a game. Another app, called Thuuz, has a similar system that lets users know when a game is about to get exciting – say, when time is running out in a tie game.
For those who don't want to download a new app, USA Today also runs a Twitter account called @SportsPSA, which notifies followers of potentially exciting game action as it approaches. The NCAA tournament could be a great time to activate Twitter notifications for this account.
