To the winner: Sports Illustrated's March Madness Issue, Autographed by The VillainThe spoils.

Ah, March.

That special month when you devote countless hours to assembling the perfect bracket only to find out that you were housed by someone that made mascot-based selections.

However you come by your picks, the winner of our challenge will be taking home a copy of SI's 2010 March Madness issue autographed by The Villain, himself (shown at right).

Oh, yeah -- if you turn in a perfect bracket, Yahoo! is going to give you $5 million. Should be easy, right?

Don't sleep on getting your picks in. The pool is limited to the first 500 entrees and our bowl challenge filled up in a matter of days in December.

We're ready whenever you are. You'll be able to login with a Facebook, Google or Yahoo account.

The relevant bits:

Good luck!

Wow - the Villian rocking some serious lipstick in that SI Cover.   Maybe he could pick up Covergirl as a sponsor...

General question: is anyone having issues with Yahoo!'s custom scoring options?  I want to use the upset bonus system for a separate group...haven't received a response from Yahoo! to my query on the matter...  thanks!

I've won my last two bracket challenges. I'd like to make this three in a row.

I am advancing all number #1s and #2s past the second rd and the rest I am flipping a coin on every other game. I really do want to see how a bracket fares by simply flipping a coin vs every other bracket will pan out in a tourney. My team name will be Matta World Peace.

If you lose to me, you lost to a quarter.  My quarter really really liked UNLV.

So, the group is already full. I hate finals.

Yeah, sorry. Little surprised it filled up in 14 hours, myself.

LadyBuck's picture

It's all good. I still made my bracket in other places. Just didn't think it would fill up so quickly.

I'd be pissed if I didn't get into this pool because there are 15 ppl that did and didn't make picks in time.

Thanks for informing me. As it is, my brackets are 6 for 6.
