It’s our seventh annual bracket game! I don’t really have time to do a big write-up this year like I usually do (you’re welcome). To join our friendly NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament bracket game go to http://ebwoot.mayhem.cbssports.com/e. If you already have a CBSSports.com account you just need to sign in (I STRONGLY recommend trying to use your Woot username both so we’ll know who you are and you won’t reveal personal information you might not want us to know; even if you have an account under your real name you may want to make a separate one for our game); if you don’t have an account you’ll need to create one (it’s free). When prompted, enter our password: ebw
If you’ve played in years past you’re probably already set to go (unless I removed you from our group because you hadn’t played in a couple years; you might need to rejoin in that case). Filling out the brackets is as easy as clicking the team you think will win each game; each subsequent round is automatically set as you make your picks. You can create two brackets if you want to try to make one that seems more realistic and have one fantasy bracket where your 16-seed alma mater becomes an unstoppable force that wins it all, or something like that. Make sure your picks are in before 11 AM EDT on Thursday. Once the main round of the tournament starts the brackets are locked and it’s too late to join.
There’s no cost to join (unlike the pool you may have at work or something) and there’s also no prize. I might try to make a graphic this year you can put in your signature, but there’s no guarantee that will actually happen. The important thing is to have fun, and maybe engage in some good-natured banter on here.
