As we do every year, for reasons that aren’t entirely clear for a movie and television website, we’re doing a Pajiba NCAA Bracket, which will give you all a chance to impress us with your college basketball knowledge or lack thereof. The winner will take home our undying love, which will probably die the day after you win. Also, you get bragging rights, which have no monetary value. Also, no one will care so bragging may present a problem. I’m not certain about any cash prizes this year, but Big Poppa Rowles can let you know when he gets back from being a drunken lout in Austin (not jealous).
The reality, as usual, is that you don’t have to know anything about college basketball to compete in the bracket or, honestly, to win the bracket. It’s ridiculously arbitrary. I don’t think any of our past winners were particularly knowledgeable of the game. It’s just a fun little time killer. Also, I don’t have a workplace (or a reason to wear pants to work), so you good people will be my able substitutes.
To join the bracket, just go here. You’ll need a Yahoo email address. The group ID is #173474. The group name is PajibaIs4Lovers and the bracket name is Love and Basketball, and the password for the bracket is PajibaIsAlso4Haters. It should otherwise be fairly self-explanatory.
You have until 12:15pm EDT on Thursday, March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day!) to submit a bracket. So, come along. Sing a song. Join a bracket. It’s great for your self esteem.
Bracket: Love and Basketball
Joanna Robinson cribbed this from Dustin’s post last year because the man himself is out of town (still not jealous). She knows little to nothing about college hoops but loves March Madness and always cheers for Gonzaga. GO ZAGS.
