NCAA basketball bracket time

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Mar 15, 2009 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post is running a NCAA pool contest. If you can pick a perfect bracket, you can win $100 million. Thats right, $100 million. I’m totally serious, go to the contest site and check it out.

We are giving away a La-Z-Boy Recliner each week. To enter, all you have to do is answer the weekly poll question below and pick the recliner you want to win. The winner will be randomly selected at the end of each week.


Meanwhile, there’s also a LoHud Yankees Blog pool on that loyal reader Phee Buddy organized.

Go to the link on Yahoo, click “join existing group” and put in this info:

Group ID: 8523

Password: smooch

You’ll need to be signed up for a Yahoo account if you don’t already have one. It takes a minute if you don’t have one. The league name is lohud yankees blog.

There’s a second Yahoo group as well:

Group Name: Yankees Lohud Blog

Group ID: 76489

Password: yankees

I’ll join all those groups, so feel free to make fun of me when I have no teams in the Final Four.

UPDATE, 7:20 p.m.: Here’s who I like for the Final Four:

Michigan State, Missouri, Pittsburgh and Oklahoma. I like Oklahoma winning it all. But it totally would not surprise me if some team came out of nowhere and made the Final Four.

However … I want Michigan to win because I bet $20 on them at 80-1 at the Bellagio during the Winter Meetings. I also have $50 on UConn at 12-1.

Two upset specials: American (14) over Villanova (3) and Akron (13) over Gonzaga (4).
