The Chicagoist will be launching later but in the meantime please enjoy our archives.

Reminder: Chicagoist Tournament Challenge

By Benjy Lipsman in Miscellaneous on Mar 16, 2009 3:20PM


If you're anything like us, you printed out a half dozen brackets last night after the NCAA selection committee set the field of 65 for this year's tournament as you begin to hone in on just the right mix of sure things and upsets to win bragging rights over friends and co-workers.

We filled out our first bracket on gut, and then began our research on teams as we try to refine our picks. Three versions deep, we're still not feeling it. But we've got a couple more days to lock down our selections. You do, too, if you want to join us for Chicagoist's Tournament Challenge. To enter our pool, click this link to go directly to the group, or go to ESPN's Tournament Challenge, register or log in, and search for Chicagoist. The password is: chicagoist.

For those who have already registered, make sure to lock in your picks before the first games tip off on Thursday. And remember, just one entry per person in the Chicagoist pool, please.

Once again, there will be a prize for the top reader entry. But is there any bigger reward than being able to gloat after making the Chicagoist sports staff look foolish for our picks? Of course, last year 70 of 90 readers were able to lay claim to those bragging rights...
