    It's time for March Madness!! :cheer: Test your knowledge of college basketball or random luck against fellow Dawg's Saloon members! I have created a group on CBS Sports and have provided the link and password below. You will have to create a CBSSports account in order to sign up. I have implemented a seed scoring bonus up until the Sweet 16. I am also offering up a $25 gift card to either Chipotle/Starbucks or Amazon.com, or charity of winner's choice! Have fun and give it a try even if you aren't a huge college basketball fan..you'll be suprised how well you can do. Make sure to have your bracket filled out by the deadline or it won't count!
    Just a helpful hint sign up using your Dawg's screename to avoid confusion or if you don't want people knowing your real name! [​IMG]

    I always suck at these things.
    I always make my pics with my heart instead of my head.
