Hey Rush fans, Mark Binetti here, hope all is well in the Black Hills. It’s March, which means two things: 1) the Rush are gearing for their annual Rush for the Cup and the playoffs that come with it, and 2) it’s MARCH MADNESS!!!
For those of you that know my background, I worked at ESPNU, ESPN’s college sport station, for the last three years back home in Charlotte. In our studio, March Madness was always a fun time, as it reminds me of the time when I first started working at the U. We always had a bracket challenge between each other, and in the spirit of keeping with tradition, I pose a challenge to all of you: I challenge you to go head to head with me in a March Madness Bracket Challenge.
You get one entry in the challenge, and the winners are any combination of the fans that beat me or come closest to beating me. You will get a choice of one of three awesome prizes: a fan tunnel experience before a playoff game, the ability to sit in the penalty box for warm-ups before a playoff game, or a free night on the FanZoni for you and five other friends! Sign up for the bracket challenge here on our ESPN.com page: http://games.espn.go.com/tournament-challenge-bracket/2014/en/group?groupID=442781. You have until 10:15 tomorrow morning (tip-off of the first game) to submit your brackets. Best of luck to all of you, and let’s enjoy the madness!
