March marches on.  We are not quite mad yet, but basketball conference tournaments are winding down this weekend and the brackets are forthcoming.  In case you want something to check out during the endless fouls and commercial breaks at the end of each and every game, we’ve got you covered with another all star edition of The OG Weekender – our weekly collection of interweb goodness.

First Things First – The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament starts next week and it tips off right here in Dayton.  This weekend will be filled with celebration as Dayton welcomes the First Four to town with a huge party in the Oregon District on Sunday.  There is a run, games, events, bands, and more all in a run up to the christening of the 2012 brackets.  The festivities will be followed by some great basketball here in town next week.  Even the President and The British Prime Minister will be here.  For tickets to the game or info about Sunday’s party check out the event website or follow the event on twitter – @FirstFourDayton

Shave & A Haircut – This video from Dollar Shave Club has been making its way around the net lately.  It is a very low-fi, high comedy commercial for a company that will send you razorblades in the mail every month for a dollar.  Simple business, simple video, simply awesome.
