Don’t Forget To Join MYFO’s First Ever Inaugural Annual Original NCAA Division I Men’s Hockey P(h)uck-Off Memorial Presented by Bellsouth*!

2008 Frozen Four

So, did your NCAA Men’s Basketball bracket take a worse beating over the weekend than Chris Pronger endures when he forgets date night? Have no fear, fellow losers – no need to weep angrily while discovering that the intern chick at your office with Down Syndrome that shreds paper and eats her boogers has more teams in the Sweet Sixteen than you.

Unlike your co-worker who had awkward drunken sex with said intern, you now have a chance to redeem yourself simply by joining MYFO’s First Ever Inaugural Annual Original NCAA Division I Men’s Hockey P(h)uck-Off Memorial Presented by Bellsouth*.

Since no major website is having a Men’s Hockey Tournament challenge of any kind, we will be forced to go completely old school with this year’s P(h)uck-Off and tally results by hand. All you have to do is make your picks and e-mail them either to myself, Weed Against Speed, or you can e-mail them to our general e-mail address – both are conveniently located in the upper left-hand corner of our home page. In what manner you elect to send your picks is up to you: you can fill out a bracket (here is one in pdf format), scan it and e-mail it as an attachment or, if you want, you can type out the whole goddamn thing; any way you choose is fine with us.
