No March Madness games? No problem! Check out these fun alternate brackets.
With everything basically canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, sports fans, and many others, may find themselves looking for things to do or watch. And this includes those March Madness brackets. It seems, though, that people are getting creative with brackets to keep themselves busy. And while, these fun brackets may be nothing new to some, for others, it’s definitely a great competitive escape to pass the time.
Here are just a few of the March Madness brackets out there.

Premise is simple, fill out your bracket and then vote for your picks on @joe_manniello's Twitter page. Fans can join in playful banter about why they picked certain songs.
The New Kids on the Block are getting in on the fun. Earlier this week, they launched their own #NKOTBMarchMadness bracket – pitting fans against each other on Twitter as they argue over which songs deserve to win.
