Not allowed. Not even unofficial pools between friends.

And being self-employed, I'm pretty much guaranteed to win. (Not much of a payout, though ...)

I've always found the best brackets at GA meetings.

Excellent choice. I hope Pompie had some input.

When I was 15 and washing dishes at Julie's Pizza I won the "Who Shot J.R.?" pool. Now I can't even remember. Was it Sue Ellen or Kristen?

I stay out of the pool. The chlorine is hell on my sinuses. I have been told to go jump in a lake on occasion.

I ordered some brackets for the pool, but they were out of stock. I used duct tape instead.

The unit I'm currently deployed with is from Columbus, OH. I've already heard all I want to hear about Ohio State... I'm counting on KU to shut their mouths on the subject.

I think my bracket is the only one in the squadron having KU beating OSU in the final.

they do not allow swimming without a certified lifeguard on duty. We bet like southeast Kansas people and shoot basketballs from heliocopters.

The lemurs were going to fill out brackets but wound up eating the pencils.

However, to be completely sure, I would suggest consulting with Pompie also. http://www2.ljworld.com/photos/2010/jun/25/194138/

I don't need a pool at the office. I go to the Aquatic Center. But I'll give you the best kept secret for winning the NCAA pool. www.garyspivey.com

I remember one well-known local and former beer distributer who once said of the Santa Fe Railway depot "This isn't a railroad station, it's a gambling hall!" We had pots on everything there from KU football & basketball games, Super Bowl, the triple crown horse races and so on. March Madness, however, was the crown jewel. Bracketology was the one that everybody wanted to win. It wasn't the money that mattered -it was the bragging rights to having the best bracket.
