Had a nice turn out last year trying to host the brackets ourselves, but this year we’ve decided to use the very user-friendly bracket manager system offered by CBS Sports. That means you have even less of an excuse for not joining the fun with Frump!
Moreover, like last year, it’s completely free — no entry fee, etc. — and yet you can still win some fantastic prices (as outlined after the jump).
