If anyone's up for March Madness picks and seeing how you do against other HTFers, check out the Yahoo Tournament Pick'em 2009, and click on "Join a Group" and then it'll prompt you to log into or create a Yahoo account. Once you do that, then use:

Group ID # 95870

I think this is a direct link:

Thanks for creating the group. I like to participate in these pools, but do it strictly for fun. This will provide a little competition. I hope we can get more forum members to participate. I was the 6th person to join this group.

I am in! I love this time of year but we're spoiled here in the Triangle.

I usually have my list made out on Monday but I'm a little strung up on what to do this year. As a die-hard Louisville fan I want to pick them but at the same time I'm worried about cursing them as I rarely pick the winners. Posted Image

Oh well, I'll do the bracket here (not sure who I'm going to pick yet).

A little trivia question -- Can anyone tell me what very possible Championship matchup would have a special significance to a UH Rainbow fanatic?

(I ask because the prospect is quite thrilling to me, but my co-worker tells me nobody outside Hawaii would care -- or realize.)

Okay, I'm in. If I somehow win, though, it's complete luck. I've watched almost no college basketball this year.

I'd like to get in but the Yahoo system isn't working very well. Their message board is flooded with complaints so I'm sure they're aware.

The water's pretty wet in this pool. Posted Image

But the Yahoo experience (my first time) was anything but smooth. I had to fill out the complete brackets twice, etc.

Of course, I had a bunch of problems as manager of a "Pigskin Pick 'Em group at ESPN this year, too. Anything I've done at CBS Sports, so far, has been pretty easy. I think I'm taking my football group there next year.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

About 3.5 hours left to get your picks in.

Are you ready for some basketball? I thought everyone would enjoy this video clip from The Onion.

Guys I need some help. As stated in the 4th post the Yahoo system is kicking my ass. It seems no matter what I do that it will not save my picks. I thought that I had it taken care of yesterday but today I received an email saying my bracket was incomplete. Any ideas or suggestions?
