The NCAA men’s basketball tournament tips off tomorrow, which means time is running out to sign up for the first ever Falls Church Times pick’em pool.

Remember that it’s free to enter a bracket in the tournament and there are prizes available for the top two finishers!  The winner will win a $75 gift certificate to a restaurant in the City of Falls Church of his or her choice and the runner-up will win a hand-picked gift basket of Falls Church Farmers Market goodies.

The tournament is being run through  If you wish to participate all you have to do is click here and press the “join a group” icon.  The group ID number is 50125 and the password is (if you are not already a yahoo member you will need to create an account—it takes only a minute and is free).

Let the madness begin.

    Every year it’s the same. I get all the information together, start researching further on-line, begin analyzing each first round game, and then, either pressed for time or over-whelmed with data, give up and quickly complete the bracket. Once it worked (2003) and once it nearly did (1997), but usually I’m sunk after the first weekend.

    All the “experts” at ESPN are picking Kansas except Dickie V, who’s taking Kentucky. Last year most of them went with North Carolina, so they may well be right. But every so often a team seeded third or lower manages to win. This may be one of those years.

    Good luck to all!

    I learned many years ago that any system of picking winners works when my boss won the pool by choosing which city or town she’d most like to live! Now to use the correct system in the correct year is the rub…

    We’re up to 21 folks in the first ever Falls Church NCAA March Madness Men’s Basketball tournament competition for city-wide bragging rights. I posted The President’s bracket selection video (see the top right). In case you’re wondering, he went with Kansas. (Pretty much everyone is.)

    Only about 14 hours left to sign-up – don’t wait!
