The Only Sporting Championship Worth Filling Out a Bracket For

Or whatev, but you know what I’m talking about. Today (or I suppose it’s now “yesterday”) was Selection Sunday and that means that it’s time for the Know-Nothing No Downside Not Too Much Upside Pool. That means that there’s no entrance fee, most people who play don’t actually watch basketball much, and the prize is something random I find lying around the house. Or at the farmer’s market. Or it might be nothing! I’m creative like that.

I don’t care how you get the bracket to me, there’s lots of them available online. I can also send you a fillable one made by Todd (from whom I cribbed everything, so thanks Todd!!!) if you contact me. I need it by Thursday at around noon EST or 9am PST. The scoring will be: 1 pt for each first round game, 2 pts for each second round game, then 3, 4, 6, and finally 8 pts for the championship game.

Past winners:

  • 2007: Yut (kiss and a hearty handshake AND a hearty “Congratulations!”)
  • 2006: Yut (kiss and a hearty handshake)
  • 2005: misa (2 bunny candles)
  • And just to get the trash talking (really, it’s the best part, no?) started, Yut offered to forego entering this year so that someone else has a chance. No, he really said that!!! Also he impugned my prize choices! Hmmph!!! Hmmph, I say!

    Edited to add: Facebook has a bracket contest, so does the Washington Post, for starters, if you wanna join those too. :)


    1. Tigs, sheer luck is not trash talk worthy!! :p Youse just scared of losing the crown, which you will this year, to me.

    2. How do you pronounce “impugned”? Is that French?


      like impune
      I dunno if it’s French, seems to think it came from middle french (I think that’s what MF stands for, but I could be making stuff up. :p)

    4. that is crap tigs, i only lost last year because i had virginia winning it all…and i STILL came in second. and really, i am a winner for standing by my team. too bad for you guys that uva didn’t make it in this year (although i am sad).

    5. so with ct on this one.except for the crown going to her of course. we all know who’s gonna jack the crown and laugh in ya’lls faces. si. es yo.
      its okay tigs, don’t be scared. i promise to make a super painful loss for you this year. don’t cry.
      you’re welcome :)

    6. i was last last year and 2nd to last the year before, so i could only tie this year!

      here’s to low expectations… :D
