March Madness 2009
Greetings! ,

March Madness Let the Madness begin. Fun, prizes, bragging rights - what more could you ask for.
AGAIN - this is completely FREE to join.
That's right Psoas Massage + Bodywork is running an NCAA Men's Basketball Pool. And not just any pool but an awesome, FREE, spectacularly prized pool. We talked to our partners and everyone loves the idea - so they are all donating great gifts and we will donate multiple massages as well.

And of course the winner gets a year of bragging rights (value - priceless).

For all of you who have never participated in an NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
Pool before here is a quick intro - also explained well on the CBS site.

The Tournament is comprised of 64 teams. 32 games are played the first round - the loser are eliminated - winners move to the next round. The same format continues and the field gets paired down until the Championship Game on April 6, 2009 at Ford Field in Detroit.

Picking your winners is easy. The teams are seeded so you know who is considered the better team but the better team does not always win. You must choose every game. In the first round you will pick teams to win - those teams will be available for you to pick in the second round - but you have to pick all rounds and their winners before the games start on the morning of Thursday March 19th. Really, its simple.
Follow this link - create a CBS membership ID and password (takes about 30 seconds) and off you go. You will not be able to fill in your brackets until Selection Sunday March 15 but you can sign up now.
