This isn't really Laker related or even NBA related, but since we are all sort of hoops-in-general obsessed around here I thought it might be fun to create an SSR March Madness NCAA tourney bracket challenge for us to participate in as a group.
I'm not sure if y'all are familiar with Yahoo! Sports, but that is where I have created these things in the past and it's really pretty easy to make your picks and check your bracket scores and standings once the Madness starts from there. You can even sync your Yahoo! bracket with Facebook so that your score and the standings after every round post to your FB profile. So, if you feel like diving in for some March Madness fun and want to gauge your hoops knowledge against that of your fellow SSR members, I invite you to fill out a bracket(s) for yourself.
For the SSR group info, please click here. Once you click on that link, you will want to pick the "Join Group" button. If you don't currently have a Yahoo! account, you will be prompted to create one. After you have created a Yahoo! account, or you have simply signed in to your existing account you will need to enter the Group ID # 60718 and Group Password ssr2011 (no space) to access our group and once you have created your bracket name you can then enter your picks.
As far as your bracket name, I would make the suggestion to use your SS&R username or something similar as your bracket name (for example, I use bigskycat). It makes it easy to identify everyone that way.
The deadline for making your picks is the tip-off of the first game scheduled for Thursday, March 17th. The maximum number of brackets you can fill out for the SSR group is 2.
There will be no money involved, of course, and other than bragging rights for the winner(s) there are no physical prizes to speak of.
So, once again, if you feel like giving the bracket challenge a shot and you want to compete against your SSR family, go for it. And, I suppose we could use this thread as a general March Madness thread, as well. Talk about whatever you want that pertains to that.
