Personal mention on ESPN in the last day or two. Did anybody see it?

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)

I'm in my 12th year of running a bizarre online NCAA basketball pool. It's hard to do it justice unless you've entered it, but it's non-profit, no gambling involved, full of ridiculous data analysis tools, and the winner only gets a candy bar (mailed to them anywhere on the globe). Oh, and you compete against 1000 chimpanzees, who all make their picks at random.

SO ANYWAY, apparently my pool was mentioned on ESPN in the past 48 hours, but I don't know what show and in what context. Any chance anyone saw this, so I can try tracking down a clip?

If it helps, it's called the "Johnny Quest Memorial Candy Bar Pool" or JQMCBP for short. I kind of doubt they would have referred to it by name though.

Response by poster: oh well...doesn't appear anyone's seen it. Who would have thought I wouldn't get to witness my 15 minutes seconds of fame

What makes it bizarre? It's difficult to tell from the website given that it's now too late to enter.
