>> Click here to view/join the game! <<

We did this last year, and it was a blast! Basically, whoever wants to play will fill out a "Bracket" of which teams you think will win each game. If you pick the most games correctly, you'll receive a prize! (Probably $250 in ToO money.) Sign up for the game between now and Monday, and fill out the bracket sometime after Sunday night.

Here is how to sign up:
  1. Click the link above.
  2. If you've ever used ESPN.com before, log into your account. If not, there's a button to sign up for a free one. A pop-up will appear. Fill it out.
  3. Click the the button that says "CREATE AND JOIN". You have now been added to the game.
  4. Pick all the winning teams! Picking will begin on Sunday night.

So... who's interested? If 5 people play, maybe I'll consider changing the motto. \:D/

Well, there's five entries now, but I'd hardly consider Obama an official player. :noway:

Woohoo, I can't wait to see if I can beat the President's entry. \:D/ He picked all #1 seeds, so it shall be hard. Good to have you onboard, bookworm!

Can I get a placement/ranking update of the ToO players? It won't show up for me, or else I don't know how to get there. ;)

1. President Obama: 490 points (he's actually in the top 0.1% overall)
2. Invisible Ninja: 430 points
3. American Eagle: 350 points
4. bookworm: 330 points
Sadly, it says you didn't make any picks, TKD. I give you 5 honorary points. \:D/

The good news is we all picked a different national champion. (Obama = Kansas, IN = Pittsburgh, AE = Ohio St, bookworm = Notre Dame) Pitt and Notre Dame lost. ;)

Picking the final game is really important, so I'm glad Ohio State is still in this.

That would explain why I can't see it. \:D/ Thanks. ;)

Oh be quiet. xD You better hope KU doesn't win though or somebody's gonna have a top spot. :P

Oh, man! I wish I'd seen this before the Tourney started. How 'bout those upsets yesterday? CRAZY! They threw off my bracket. After the second round, though, I was ahead of President Obama. :shock: I didn't think my bracket was going to do that well... :p

JIA, our group isn't locked, so if you made a bracket with ESPN, you could probably still join. \:D/

And yeah, Duke's loss was amazing. I want Butler to make the Final Four (losing to Kansas, of course).

This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

Well... Obama won. By a lot. I already pay too much taxes, so I'm not going to send him the $250. :P

Final standings:
1. President Obama (650 points)
2. Invisible Ninja (550 points)
3. JesusIsAlive (460 points)
4. bookworm (450 points)
5. American Eagle (430 points)
6. The Kings Daughter (didn't make any picks)

For getting second place (and/or being the #1 real player), IN will receive $100 in winnings. This was fun. \:D/

I should just say I was picking the women’s tournament. I had two of the Final Four, and almost the Champion. :P
