Play RTC Bracket Nonsense: Win a Detroit-Made JalopyPosted by rtmsf on March 15th, 2009
As you might have heard, it’s Selection Sunday around these parts. That means all kinds of Bracket ridiculousness is about to begin. We’re shameless lemmings like all the rest, so naturally we’re going to join in on the fun n’ games by offering up our version of Bracket Nonsense where you can watch your F4 sleeper go down in flames in round two while your little sister’s best friend who makes picks based on “hot-sounding” player names nails seven of the elite eight.
Of course, RTC’s readers are the best and the brightest of the hoops cognoscenti, so we don’t expect that to happen to anyone over here. Here’s the information:
Name: RTC Bracket Nonsense
Group ID#: 90571 (there is no password)
Nevertheless, we want everyone to play our Bracket Nonsense game because of the tremendous thought and effort that went into this year’s prizes. Given that the ultimate college basketball prize is Detroit this year, we searched… no… scoured Ebay and Craigslist to locate a $1 Motor City foreclosure property that we could offer to the winner as the ultimate grand prize Final Four vacation destination, to be enjoyed for years after the F4 (and all other forms of life) leaves town!!
Alas, demand outstrips supply at that bargain price and the economy is tough on everyone, so the best we could find were $1,000 homes, which is a little too rich for RTC’s bottom line at this point. Our next thought was to offer a burned-out car as the grand prize (after all, the logo itself is a flaming tire), but we were reminded by some of our Eastern friends that such a symbol of urban decay is really more endemic to Philly than D-town. After some hard thinking, we realized that was correct.
So what’s left? Well, fair readers, given that the Final Four will be played in the Motor City, we thought maybe our readers would be in a patriotic mood to assist the purveyors of American transport known as the Big Three by driving away in one of their fine models from yesteryear. Because nothing says American know-how like a 1970 Chevy Impala, right? That’s right, you’ll get this junker, totally free and clear, as the grand prize. For second prize, we’ll allow you to make a post telling us everything we do wrong on this site (actually might be the better prize, come to think of it).
Play now, play often, play RTC Bracket Nonsense. Best of luck.
