Frumpzilla’s First Annual NCAA Tournament Bracket Pool *Prize Update*

March Madness 2010

Join Frumpzilla's March Madness 2010 Pool!

It’s that time, Frumpsters. March Frump Madness time, and what better way for you to celebrate than to enter our first annual bracket contest? Best of all, it’s entirely free to enter (seriously, there’s no catch), and you can actually win thousands of dollars* in prizes**!

All you have to do is email us to let us know you want in (that’s frumpmail@gmail.com in case the link doesn’t work for you), and we’ll send you a bracket. Send your completed entry back to us, and that’s it. If you’re savvy enough to already have access to an editable electronic bracket, you can obviously just complete it and attach it to your initial email. Tiebreaker is the total score in the championship game.

We’re using a fairly standard, balanced scoring system (2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 for Round 1 through the Championship game, respectively), and will be posting the updated bracket and standings after each round here at the site. Once all the brackets are in, we’ll also be sending out a file that contains all the entries and their corresponding picks (just to ensure there’s no funny business).

Good luck, Frumpsters! Let us know if you have any questions, and we hope to see you in the pool!

*Taiwanese Dollars

**1st Place: $100 (U.S.) Target gift card. 2nd place: $50 Target gift card. 3rd place: $25 Target gift card. All winners will also get some ‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ Dick Towel apparel! Truly frumptastic.

***BIG UPDATE!!*** We’ve gotten our hands on 6 sideline premier tickets(sec. 107 row N seats 1-6) for The Carolina Hurricanes April 8th matchup vs. The Montreal Canadiens!!  The top 3 finishers that can attend the game on the 8th in Raleigh, NC will get a pair!  If you’re out of the area, we’ll just go to the next person in line. (top 3 overall still get above winnings)

Hardees gets a bit cheeky with new ad campagin…

Hardees (don’t ever call it Carl’s Jr. around us) has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the scenic, cultural mecca that is Rocky Mount, North Carolina.  Apparently, however, solid, yet simple, hamburgers and all beef hot dogs, classic “Big” roast beef sandwiches, and tater tots don’t really cut the mustard anymore.  Well, they haven’t for awhile, I guess.

Remember Hardees’ relatively brief stint with fried chicken?  Some said it was better than KFC.  How about the Frisco Burger?  Still, quite possibly, the reigning champion in the “Most Likely to Trigger Spontaneous Cardiac Arrest” category at the Fast Food awards.

More recently, though, Hardees has gone in a slightly different direction: Bigger, thicker, juicier meat (or cheese paper) that beautiful, scantily clad, women (or blue collar manual labor) are more than eager to wrap their hands around, get a little messy, and gobble down.  Hey, it works, right?  Pushing the envelope a bit, maybe, but who couldn’t get behind that?  Well, someone in the marketing department, while certainly behind it, apparently felt they hadn’t pushed quite hard enough; decided it was time to come out with a full on thrust…

Apparently there’s an entire lineup of these spots.  Make the Jump for some more…
