The greatest sporting event in the history of mankind except for maybe the World Cup or what have you is just about upon us!
It's NCAA Tournament time, and just like last year we shall determine who among us is the literary bracket picking champion OF THEM ALL.
Last year, Jody-Feldman was a UConn victory away from winning the ENTIRE multi-million person ESPN challenge, but ultimately it was Jared who came away victorious.
Who will win this time?
(Probably not me)
Here's how it works: You'll fill out your NCAA bracket online by picking the winners of all the games. And I'm offering a better prize this year: The winner with the most points at the end of the NCAA tournament will win their choice of a free partial critique or a book from one of my clients
Here's how to enter:
1. Go to the front page of the ESPN tournament challenge: http://games.espn.go.com/tcmen/frontpage
2. Make your picks.
3. If you have an ESPN username and password you can log in when you submit your picks, otherwise you may need to create a new user ID and password. But don't worry, it's not onerous and you can decline to receive updates in case you're spam conscious.
4. Hover over the link that says "My Groups" and then click "Create or Join a Group"
5. Search for "Bransford Blog Challenge." Enter the password, which is "rhetorical" and then click Join Group.
Then you're all set! You can make changes to your bracket by clicking on it until it locks on Thursday.Please limit yourself to one entry
This year all updates and trash talking and "I don't believe what I just saw!!"s will be conducted right here in this thread
Oh, and you don't have to know anything about basketball to participate. In fact, it's probably an asset.
