2021 March Madness Sticker Pool

edited March 18 in Lost Dogs
Given the increase in popularity in collecting and trading PJ stickers, I thought this years pool, like last year's, would be a sticker pool.  Less expensive to part with.  Easier to mail - put a stamp on an envelope and stick it in the mail.  Hopefully, this will result in more participants.

Overview:
It would be on CBS Sports.com.  Standard / Default scoring system.  After the tourney starts, you can see everyone else's picks.  Each participant's entry fee is a PJ sticker.  Once a sticker is entered by a participant, no one else can use that sticker as their entry (meaning no duplicates).  Winner gets all stickers.  Participants mail their sticker to winner.

Maximum of 1 entry per participant.

Participants:
CopperTom - Wrigley 2016 (Black and Gold)
boobooliscious - Fenway 2016 (Pennant)
Armyfan - Philadelphia 2016
Tempo - Blue Riot Act Ghoul
SweetDaddyLou - Sao Paulo 2015

    Care for a little side bet? We did that a couple of years back and I've been bragging ever since! I think we did a 3 show specificsticker bet, interested Chris?

    As horrible as my bracket is I’m only 4 pats behind.  This year is unbelievably bad...

    I have no idea how these things work. Splain por favor. I'm not really into sports.

    You fill out a bracket and get points for every correct winner you pick.  A "Busted bracket" means that your winner has exited the tournament early.  I picked Ohio St to win the whole thing but apparently the whole team was doing keg stands the evening before because they didn't show up and a #2 seed lost to a #15 seed.  It is very, very rare that an upset like that happens but it sure makes this type of tourney interesting!

    I think Illinois might have something similar happen. :|

    Oral Roberts wasn't ranked in the top 50 before the tourney and they are in the Sweet 16.  They are the modern day St Joesephs or the old school Gonzaga.  Before these past fewyears Gonzaga was always a sleeper team that would get a win or two and surprise people.  Now?  #1 ranked.

    Yikes. I am in a just for fun bracket at work. I only have 6 of the Sweet 16 and only two teams I picked for the final 4 are still capable of getting there, Baylor and Gonzaga. My pick for the champions was Illinois. Maybe I will do better next year.

    You did fine.  This year was an absolute monster to pick.  Many an upset which is why no one has ever had a complete bracket.

    If Gonzaga beats Houston - Bob wins
    If Gonzaga beats Baylor - Bob wins

    Way to jinx him.

    I can't login to the group pool to verify the winner.  I assume Thomas is the winner.  Please PM the participants your address.
  • tempo_n_groovetempo_n_groove Posts: 26,278
    Who gets my damn sticker?!?
  • SweetDaddyLouSweetDaddyLou Posts: 902
    Congrats to the winner, shoot me a PM with the address so I can send the sticker to Thomas.

    I will officially take credit for being the only guy to take Baylor.  Some of you thought the odds were against me, counted me out. But that only fueled the fire! As a wise man once said.  GO ARMY, BEAT NAVY!!

    I hate to say that you did nadda to help w any fire.  Good pick though considering my winner got knocked out by a 40th ranked team... IN THE FIRST ROUND!!!

    And everyone can save postage and their stickers. I already have more than I will stick. Pay it forward folks! Be well, and stay safe!
