There's the NCAA basketball tournament, of course. And The Morning News' Tournament of Books, and Jezebel's 80s-vs-90s thing. But who else is doing some kind of bracket/tournament thingy this month?
I would like to watch March Madness online. I am even happy to pay NCAA.com the $3.99 they want. But I am not currently in the US. Two questions: 1. If someone in the US purchased a pass for me and then gave me the log-in info, would it work for me to log in overseas? from overseas I am blocked when I try to purchase a pass. 2. Alternatively, if that is not possible, do I have any other options for watching March Madness? Google is proving surprisingly useless.
I don't know anything about college basketball but love filling out brackets. I just filled out a simple one for Morton's in order to try and win a free steak. Does anyone know of any other businesses that doing promotions similar to this? I'd like to see if I can get some free stuff.
To SF MeFites: Where's a good place to catch March Madness today? I particularly want to see the Maryland/Houston game around 6:30 tonight. 'Good' here is defined by cheap beer and the chance to occasionally hear some commentary. Proximity to BART a plus, willing to travel to Oakland.

Anyone know of a flexible Excel spreadsheet for managing a pool for a NCAA March Madness tournament? [more inside]
I just heard that my extremely odd online NCAA basketball pool was mentioned on ESPN in the past day or two, except I don't know in what context or on what show. Anyone see it? (more inside) [more inside]
