March is coming, and that means brackets, brackets, brackets. We fill them out a little differently around here. We don't enter office pools
or fill them out ahead of time
. The best bracket is a blank one that stays blank until the games start. Then, as the games are complete, we write in the winners in the next round -- in big letters
for Other 25 upsets, tiny letters for SEC and ACC teams. Sometimes that can get quite elaborate
As part of the Season 7 membership package
, everybody who signed up will receive their very own As-You-Go bracket (formerly known as the "holiday surprise"), with a handy 12-month Mid-Majority calendar
on the back featuring 12 Bally action poses. We just got the big box full of them via UPS at the new office, and they're going out in manila envelopes to our reader-supporters this weekend! After a bad and blurry batch back in December, version 2.0 looks fantastic. The cards are 8 1/2 by 11 inches in size, printed on sturdy and hardy 100-lb. thick matte-coated photo paper, full color on both sides. The brackets are ready for your scribblings in pen or pencil. Here's a close-up.
Then when the season ends, turn it over and count days until the next one!
Only one problem: we ordered way too many of them! So we'll be selling the extra hundred or so for $3
a piece, postpaid, no limit. Grab a stack for your friends, or fill out a few yourself. Because of travel, this is a limited-time offer. Even if we don't sell out, we'll halt the sale on Tuesday, February 22 and fulfill all orders.
You can order with PayPal below, and they'll let you use your credit card if you need to.
The offer has expired. If you're a Season 7 Member, check the inserted News Update in your mailed bracket for information on picking up extras.
