We’ve all been entering NCAA tournament pools for years if not decades. $10, $20, win, usually lose, big deal. They’re fun, sure, but I got a better idea. With a suggestion from friend of the Vice Blog expectingrain5 I came up with this:
An NCAA tournament pool where your entry “fee” is beer.
So here’s the deal, to get into this tournament pool you just need to offer up a nice local beer from wherever you live. Doesn’t have to be rare, doesn’t have to be expensive, doesn’t even have to be good (although, what kinda dickhead would offer up a shitty beer?) You live in Wisconsin, offer up a bottle or two of New Glarus. California, how about some Russian River? I will probably offer a fancypants New York beer (Black Ops, hmmm?) Now I’m not saying you have to be as generous of course. I don’t want this be a burden or expensive. A bottle or two of beer, plus shipping, will cost you max $10-15, around the same as any NCAA office pool.
Here’s our private group, “Boxes of Beer”
Password is of course: beer
No one’s forcing you to enter, so please, if you do enter, don’t be a jerk and not live up to your end of the bargain if and when you most likely lose. I’ll be really pissed if that happens. And I’ll be insanely jealous at the thought of the winner receiving box after box after box of beers all throughout April.
If you enter, please leave a comment below telling us your entry name. It might also be fun to speculate what beer(s) you might send to the winner should you lose. Also, use your real e-mail address when you comment. No one can see that but me, and that way I can collect e-mail addresses to create a master list for our group.
(And let’s go Syracuse!!!!)
Two notes because I’m getting some questions:
*This isn’t only for beer bloggers. Any one is free to enter and I gladly welcome you. You just need to offer a local beer.
*And, of course, you must be 21 or older. My lawyers are making me say that. If you’re 18 or older though you can still date me. My lawyers also made me say that.
