HF Flyers March Madness Pool

I just put together a pool on Yahoo. I don't see a ID# like normal so I assume you just need the name.

Pool Name: HF Flyers Pool
Pool ID Number: #102562
Password: flyers

Hopefully we get some interest.

EDIT: Apparently it is the ID#. I'm trying to find it.

I should make a disclaimer. If someone wins the billion I get a cut for hosting the pool.

I think everyone in the group should get a cut.

I'll join, but don't let Stizzle in because he wins every Flyers board fantasy game.

Also since Marquette isn't in it, go Wisco!

Screw that. A billion dollars does not go as far as it used to. I share with no one.

I hope someone wins the billion. I can't believe Buffett convinced himself to do this.

It's genius on his part.

It's only genius if nobody wins.

Obviously this is a very calculated risk on Buffett's part (the odd are ridiculously in his favour), but he's the type of guy that still picks up pennies from the ground.

Couldn't agree more. Another example of the Old Boys Club trying to stick it to a newcomer.

They gave them the best team in the country imo (and defending champion) in the sweet 16 potentially. Louisville/Michigan State/Florida are the 3 favorites and two of them are 4 seeds .

This bracket is pretty tough this year. I usually have no problem picking upsets (not necessarily correctly, but I usually have a couple in my bracket), but this year I can't find a team I think will be the Cinderella. Delaware I wanted to pick heading into the tournament, but MSU looks like they are just too good so picking them is risky. Warren Buffet chose a good year to do this promotion.

I joined; picked most of the favourites in round one... had Wichita State going out early.

Pay me my billion, Warren.

Rats. No billion for me; Dayton knocks off Ohio State.

I had OSU out in the next round, so I could still potentially win one of the $100K consolation prizes...

So this is what it feels like to have a billion dollars slip through your hands...
