Babe of the week: Fill out your DECEMBER MADNESS 2012 bracket now!!!

It's playoff time again! Simply fill out a bracket in its entirety with your predictions and PM it to me (by uploading your bracket to an image host, there are plenty of free ones out there) before 3 a.m. Eastern/midnight Pacific on Thursday night of November 29 with the following:

1. Your screen name.

2. Tiebreaker No. 1: How many votes will the champion win by? All I need is a number. This tiebreaker is only valid if you've picked the correct finals matchup and champion.

3. Tiebreaker No. 2: Which first round matchup will have the closest margin of victory and what will that number be? Again, this is only valid if you've selected the right winner.

Each correct prediction in the first round is worth one point, in the quarterfinals is worth two points, in the semifinals is worth three points and in the championship is worth four points.

The winner will get to select three contestants (who haven't had their own thread yet) in 2013. If you've won December Madness before, you get one more pick than last time.

Good luck!

Re: Babe of the week: Fill out your DECEMBER MADNESS 2012 bracket now!

I'm in!

I'm fairly happy with my Q/F picks but if I'm right the Semis are really hard to predict and a lot will come down to which of the board's voting biases triumph. Still I like to be controversial so I've gone agains the board's usual pattern for picking the two who reach the final. If I'm right on those two, I think the final will then be a relative walkover.

On another note, thank you Aragorn for running the competition once again! Filling in my bracket is how I know Christmas is just around the corner.

It takes me about 15min or so to make it, turn it into a JPG, upload to a host and then PM to Aragorn.

Speaking of which...mine is in your PM box now Aragorn.

As usual, I have no clue what he board will do and went with gut instinct on each pick, which wasn't always what my personal preferences were, so maybe this year I'll randomly win it all! Or not. Whatevs. Bracket's in the mail, Aragorn.

Awesome for you, but since I don't own a scanner there's a considerable investment in time (and often money) for me to enter especially given my picks will likely amount to elephant snot when the smoke clears. Hence "waste of time."

Do you have Powerpoint (I'm guessing Keynote would work as well)?
Save the picture from the OP.
Insert into a blank slide.
Create Text boxes, then fill that box with your selection.
Save slide as a JPG from the "save as type" field during the save process.
Upload to file share account, get link.
Send PM to Aragorn with that link.

Just trying to help out, I don't have a scanner at home either.

I just opened it with Paint and typed my choices in, then sent the image to Aragorn. It took all of 5 minutes.

Yeah, any graphics program will do. There's no need to scan it.
