Thanks.  It was a little more painful than expected, but I got into both.  Strangely, it wouldn't work with Chrome... I had to go back to using IE to get it working properly.  Alas... my last place picks are in!
Chrome worked for me! Also, there's a thread at the top of the page with the new bracket information. I don't think it really changed much, though.

Right now my best bracket only has one 1st round game wrong with all the rest potentially correct.  Ahhhhh, brackets!

Of course its not my one here, but in the ESPN Pardon the Interuption pool.

I am a bracket maniac.  I don't gamble.  I don't buy lottery tickets.  But once a year I do brackets.  And brackets.  AND BRACKETS!!

In total I have 20 brackets this year.  You can do 10 on ESPN.com.  There is no cost and you can win $10,000.  What the hey!  You can also do multiples on CBSSports.com, including round-by-round contests where you reset after each round.  So you make sure you cover multiple upset angles as you fill out your brackets. 

Of the final 16 teams I got 15 of them right on at least one of my entries.  Unfortunately not at the same time.  The only team I never predicted to make it to the Sweet 16 was ..... Purdue.  Normally I would have.  Even though I'm a Indiana University grad and Purdue are our arch rivals, I'm a Big 10 proponent, and would have picked PU to advance at least some of the time, but they lost their best player at the end of the season so I thought they would lose.  Serves me right.  But I picked Northern Iowa over Kansas, Cornell over Wiconson and St Mary's over Villanova several times out of 20 entries.  But my overall best is only 12 out of 16 left correct.  BUT!  I can get the remaining games correct to the championship correct on five of my entries.

It won't happen.  Something will yet screw me up.  But it could happen.  Ahhhhhh...  brackets!!

It's so funny how bad my brackets are this year.  I love the upsets.  The only one with a prayer of doing well is one I have on espn.  I did 3 different brackets this year.  I think this is the worst I've ever done.

Oh well.  Even Obama is doing poorly, so I guess I shouldn't feel badly about it.  Who could have predicted all of this madness?

I would have rather have had Obama lose at healthcare reform and have a winning bracket..........

As a Hoosier, yes I must root for Butler, too.  Hey, maybe Gene Hackman will come to the championship!

OK, who won our bracket challenge?  My friendly IT people won't let me visit the bracket site from the office.  Can someone tell us the final standings?

I think BlackRockBob won both the "Sledgeweb's March Madness" group and the "SWLS" group.
