Sign Up For Chicagoist's 2012 NCAA Tournament Challenge

By Benjy Lipsman in News on Mar 12, 2012 4:40PM


March Madness is here! And that means it's time for Chicagoist's annual Tournament Challenge, where we give you a chance to compete against your fellow Chicagoist readers and staffers in our NCAA Tournament pool. It's free to play, and there's still a prize for the winning reader—plus bragging rights that are way more impressive than just winning your office pool.

But it's not easy to win. With over 100 entries the past few years, the recent winners have also beaten at least 99.8 percent of all ESPN brackets. Last year, c. figgins' BSY NATION bracket took home the prize in a wild tournament that saw nobody pick either of the championship game teams to win it all. Personally, we would just be happy finishing in the Sweet Sixteen after 44th and 35th place finishes the past two years.

To join our pool, go to ESPN's Tournament Challenge page, find the Chicagoist group and fill out your bracket. One entry per person, please.

Group: Chicagoist

Good luck! And don't forget to complete your bracket before Thursday's games start. ESPN's giving you the wins in the "first round" play-in games.
