Can you tell that it's time for the Second Annual Idiom Savant Invitational Fill Out Those Brackets On Yahoo Sports Thingit Type Deal? Because it totally is that time.
To whom is this merry diversion open? The entire Idiom Savant community. Which means you, if you're reading this... which you are.
What actions must one perform to enter? Just go here. The password is "idiomsavant," if anybody asks. If that doesn't work, go here (group ID: 73439, password: idiomsavant). You may need to set up a Yahoo! account, if you don't already have one. Once there, the site will ask you to name and create a bracket. It's pretty straightforward; it should work just like it did last year. You've got until tipoff on Thursday afternoon to get your picks in.
Isn't this all pointless, really, since Minty is bound to win again this year? Although Ms. Von Minterson's victory in the inaugural ISIFOTBOYSTTD* was decisive, it is by no means a foregone conclusion that she will enjoy a two-peat. No, the true reason that this is pointless is that there's no material wealth at stake -- plus, in a few thousand years, entropy will inevitably lead to the heat death of the universe.
So, once again, America, I ask... we doin' this?
Oh, yeah. We doin' this.
*(I still haven't sold the naming rights to the ISIFOTBOYSTTD. The sponsorship deal with Neese's Liver Pudding fell through, but I've put some calls in to the folks at Junior Johnson's Salt and Vinegar Pork Cracklin's.)
