Mayor Cancels Meeting For NCAAs

Monday's Bozeman City Commission meeting has been called on account of March Madness. Mayor Jeff Krauss says he can't attend because there's a chance that his favorite team, University of Kentucky, could be playing in the NCAA men's basketball championship game. "Everybody knows Kentucky basketball fans are lunatics and I'm no exception," Krauss said Thursday. Krauss noted, however, that Monday would have been maybe the fourth meeting he's ever missed in his seven years on the commission, which meets four times a month. Kentucky will play University of Connecticut on Saturday to determine which team goes on to Monday night's title game/Amanda Ricker, Bozeman Chronicle. More here.

Question: Would you be upset if Mayor Sandi Bloem or Mayor Clay Larkin or the mayor of your town canceled a meeting to watch a sports event?
