    Thanks god this is free, because I just did the most ridiculous thing…

    I’ll not participate.

    My new found infatuation with Beaver College pretty much skews my bracket.

    But I’m pitching the story to CBS.

    I’m in! What’s the winner get? Meet and greet with Tony and Hearne at Greg’s place? Their own OTC blog for a week? Some of whatever Jayhawk Fan drinks in the morning before posting?!


    GH: Winner gets $100 in gift certificates to Garozzo’s. Get your bracket in before the games begin on Thursday morning!

    Q. I just want to make sure, are we using the underdog bonus?

    If we are, then it alters the logical best way to “pick to win the contest”, and the max points could be greater than 192.

    Yahoo quote:
    First Round 1 point 1
    Second Round 2 points 1
    Third Round 4 points 1
    Fourth Round 8 points 1
    Semis 16 points 1
    Championship 32 points 1
    Maximum Possible 192 points

    This bracket is in a group that uses custom scoring, as described above. All brackets are also scored under the default Yahoo! scoring for the Overall Leaderboard, which is 1-2-4-8-16-32.

    This group also uses a Seed Differential bonus. For any correct picks where the underdog wins, you will receive bonus points equal to the winning team’s seed minus the losing team’s seed, multiplied by the seed bonus values above.

    GH: Yes, custom scoring as you described.

    Nice work, Hall. Thanks for the Garozzos bonus, too. Not that it matters. I keep ending up with Baylor in the final four. Sure sign of disaster.

    garozos chicken isn’t worth the plate its
    on. The food sucks. Give it to the biggest
    loser…because their food is horrible.

    Jojo, if you win, I will personally take a dump on a plate, sprinkle it will a little fresh parmesan, and serve it for your victory dinner.

    Ptolemy …

    That recipe sounds like the sandwich KSU eats every time they play KU.

    Are you going to try cap this thing, try to limit it to people who post here, try limit it to one entry per person, so it does not grow unruley with multiple entries per person, maybe ask folks to post ( one of ; ) their screen names on it, to try to keep it local to this board?

    I am new to this and after looking around on the Yahoo site, it is kind of amazing / crazy how big some of the pools are. It is not clear what the prizes are (if any ) on each pool, but your pool was/is growing big in the short time I was looking around. GOOD JOB.

    I am only wondering, this is your baby, I am happy just to play in it, just curious

    Thanks for setting it up.


    GH: No cap and very few rules. It kind of follows the nature of the Internet age. I don’t expect it to get too large or for people to enter more than a couple of brackets. Have some fun with it and let’s see how some of us do against each other. I already have a side bet with Ptolemy.

    Dude, just enjoy this and quit asking questions and stop complaining.

    I guess there’s always one in the bunch.

    Thanks for setting this up, Greg

    And Monkeyhawk, you’re welcome on the Beaver College reference. I expect full royalties when you pitch it to CBS. Just make sure you throw in Morehead too

    Second Place is $200.00 in gift certificates at Garozzo’s. Best Italian food in Kansas City? Charlie Gitto’s on THE HILL in St. Louis. Fucking Garozzo’s has turned into Chef Boy-Ar-Dee on cheap china. Mike and Charlie’s at Harrah’s sucks. Just had the veal parm at Rao’s, Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas earlier this week. The damn bone can be used as a weapon.

    right on mand….the crap sold as italian food
    here in kc is shit.
    His recipes came from st. louis…not his
    grandma or his ancestors.
    They all stole from rich and martys in st. louis
    and now theyv claim to own the best food.
    garbage my dog wouldnt eat describes it best.
    Ceasars has some great restaurants but none
    compare to nine at the palms.
    Kc may think they have good food but compared
    to the rest of the nation…this crap sucks.
    KC is a wal mart town..they love a lot of garbage
    food as long as its cheap. and the owners
    know it because kc is the worst town for
    food in the world.
    try the trio cafe…if you can handle the
    flamers its the best food in town.
    Headed tgo vegas in april…my hands are
    quivering thinking about rolling those
    6’s and 8’s at the mandalay crap tables….

    Everyone go sign up for this bracket challenge for a chance to win $10,000,000. Yes that’s right, ten million dollars. If anybody hits the motherload, I expect a little kickback love for the heads up on this…

    jojo, check our Bobby Flay’s new Mesa Grill at Caesar’s. The place is a pussy magnet. Steve Bono was right about the food in KC. Trying to be a foodie here is like Tony Botello getting into some 36″ Levi’s.

    I am in. The winner will probably get a gift certificate to Jardine’s or some left over Elbow chocolates.

    Donkey, why are you such a donk?

    btw- nice results in the first round of the bracket HAHAHAHAHA…

    Maybe if you tried to have an original thought and focused on your own work, instead of worrying so much about commenting on other’s comments, you might not be such a dufus.

    I know you are a donk, but what the fk is up with your lame ass screen name? Are you asking us to punch the donk?

    Dont worry, sooner or later your smart ass ( errr your face, well actually, it is the same thing with you ) will get the punch you have coming.

    again, nice work on your pathetic bracket donk.
