"One of the latest targets is NASA, the federal space agency. The NCAA recently asked NASA to stop advertising Mission Madness, which lets fans vote on its greatest-ever mission. The promotion featured a bracket system like that used in the college tournament as well as basketball icons. "There was no reason to use basketballs," Masters said. An agency spokeswoman said she knew nothing about any complaints from the NCAA. Mission Madness remains online."
