Here’s the post where I tell you to get ready for the post that tells you how to join the third annual BASG March Madness Bracket Buster Tournament of Champions. Or something.
If you’ve been consuming college basketball like some of us consume Coke Zero at work (I work at a place that provides free soda, which is absolutely impossible to pass up, at least for me), you should do really well this year. Actually, that’s a lie. College basketball knowledge can help you in certain cases, but my wife’s mom won this thing two years ago, and she watches about the same amount of basketball as your average mother-in-law during the regular season. Truth is, anybody can win this thing.
Just like the first two BASG March Madness contests, entry will be free and trash-talking will be encouraged. Show everyone through obnoxious comments that you can pretend to be an NCAA basketball expert for three weeks a year!
While we’re not sure what our prizes will be yet, or if there will only be a prize for the winner or for the top two or three people. We’ll just have to see what our sponsors think first, and we’ll let you know. One thing we know for sure: cookies will be involved. And perhaps alcohol, although I might get fined for running a contest where alcohol is a prize, especially since I’m way too lazy to ID people online. So yeah, scratch the alcohol.
However, just to give you a little more food for thought, I’m going to let you in on a little secret. My sleeper this year in the Big Dance: the UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs. Trust me.
