Hey, you're probably going to join some bracket pools this year. Why not join one with us, and prove that you're way smarter than all of us LGHL writers? Especially since this year, we're doing something different with our bracket pool, joining a new service that will let you change your picks during the tournament, or even during the game. No more watching your Final Four go up in smoke four hours into the tournament because you picked Duke.
Plus, if you win first place, we'll send you your choice of t-shirt from our friends at BreakingT (value $23.00). For free! So what are you waiting for?
