    March Madness is upon us! In just a few days, the brackets will be set for this year's NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. And The Arena is going to have a bracket challenge ... and you can win colors and VIPship for a week!

    Rather than having someone track all submitted brackets and leaving room for human error, we'll be using Yahoo.com to host a group for us. To participate, you'll need to not only sign-up in this thread, but you'll also need to sign up at yahoo for the group.

    The winner of this challenge will be the user declared the winner of the Yahoo group. That user will enjoy one week of VIPship and custom colors.

    The information you need at Yahoo Sports:

    Group name: The Arena Bracket Challenge
    Group ID#: 60302
    Group Password: lol@inty

    To sign up here, please include the following on the sign-up list: Your JC ID, your yahoo username (that you use for this game), your pick set name. Please keep in mind that the TOS will still apply to things posted at the yahoo group.

    Last year's winner was rechedelphar!

    Let's sign up ... add your information, and add as many spots as we need.

    Whoa, whoa, whao. I could have sworn I won this last year. I remember I had all 4 final four teams correct and had Kansas winning. I got colors too.

    You act like I actually read things Grimby posts. I did, before he became an admin. Now, like everyone else with that status, I just auto-ignore him. :p

    And, besides, if he could make a post in the Arena without loading it with sarcasm maybe he'd get better responses and bring a better aura to the boards. I'd expect as much from an admin.

    I can't wait to stare at them forever and doubt myself on every choice. Hours of speculation and debate begin... now.

    I know, right? I've made one pick so far, and its a tough one. I'll even tell everyone what it is: Louisville over the play-in game winner. Oooh.

    :p
