It's Tourney Time
You have been invited to join The News Blog's Private Group in Yahoo! Sports Yahoo! Sports Tournament Pick'em.
In order to join the group, just go to the game front page and click on the "Sign Up" button to create a team. After completing registration, or if you already have a team, click the "Create or Join Group" button and follow the path to join an existing private group. Then, when prompted, enter the following information...
The commissioner of this group has sent the following note:Even if you don't like basketball, all you have to do is pick teams until you reach a winner, it's really quite simple. I know we didn't get a lot of Oscar pool players, but this is easy to do. Just fill out the form and you're in.
Prizes: see below
If you don't have a Yahoo account, you might have to sign up for one, but that's easy enough.
It's more fun than a room full of indicted RepublicansUpdate: There is a second group up since the first group is full. The more the merrier
Update: You can enter until 12:00 PM EDT Thursday, March 16
I'll be posting the top 10 entries on Saturday and MondayUpdate: A third group is available when the second one is filled
Group ID# 100930
Update: The fourth and final group is upGroup # 132333
Group Password 987654
OK, since we have over 150 entrants, we're gonna change the prize structure somewhat
First Prize will be a $100 gift certificate to Borders, Barnes and Nobles or Amazon (winner's choice)
Second Prize will be a $75 gift certificate
Third Prize will be a $50 gift certificate
OK, since we'll have four groups, each group will have a winner and a runner up. ( I may blend the groups together if there isn't enough people in the last one.) Excluding the overall winners. So if you have one of the overall winning picks, you can't win the group.
Ok, then the winner of each group will get a $25 gift certificate and the runner up, a t-shirt from a liberal blogger site.
So the prize structure will look like this:
Overall Winner 1
Group winner 1, 2, 3, (4)
Group runner up 1,2,3,(4)
So there will be 11 different winners.
