    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    The official PM will go out on Tuesday. For now, let me know if you're in. So far it's

    For those who don't know what this is all about, here are there updated rules:

    CS.com Knockout Pool Rules:
    - $10 per entry

    - You have to send in your picks via PM (or email for the few non CS members who join) before the start of the first game on Thursday. No exceptions.

    - For Thursday of Round 64, you have to pick TWO WINNERS. Not against the spread, just outright winners — again, both teams just have to win. If either loses, you’re out.
    MAKE SURE YOU PICK TWO TEAMS THAT PLAY ON THURSDAY. SOMEBODY MESSES THIS UP EVERY YEAR. EVERY. YEAR. EVERY *REDACTED* YEAR!

    - If your Thursday teams both won, you advance and pick TWO WINNERS for Friday. If one or both of your Thursday teams lost, you're out, but you can re-buy in for Friday for another $10 but you have to pick FOUR winners to advance to Saturday).

    - If your Friday teams all won, you advance and pick ONE WINNER for Saturday. If any of your Friday picks loses, you’re out … but you can re-buy back in for Saturday for another $10 (only now, you have to pick FIVE Saturday winners and go 5-for-5 to stay alive).

    - You can only re-buy in a maximum of three times (and you can’t buy in after the start of Sunday's games).

    - You cannot pick the same team twice. Even if you get knocked out and buy back in, you can’t reuse a team. One and done.

    - If you nailed your Friday pick (or picks), you only have to pick one winner on Saturday

    - If you nailed your Saturday pick (or picks), you only have to pick one winner on Sunday to advance. Can’t be a team you already used.

    - If you lose your Saturday pick (or any one of your Saturday picks), you can buy back in for Sunday’s games for the final time … only now, you have to pick SIX Sunday winners that day and go 6-for-6 to stay alive. And again, you can’t pick a team you already used.

    - If you make it out of the first weekend alive, you only have to pick one winner per day after that. (Again, you can’t buy back in after that first Sunday.) Remember, you can’t use the same team twice. I hate to keep harping on this, but you’d be amazed how many times it’s been screwed up.

    -Once you run out of teams to pick, you advance to the next day but automatically lose. For instance, let’s say you already used Duke in Round 1 and Kentucky in Round 2, then they met on Sunday in the Elite 8 … only you had already picked every other team playing that Sunday. In that scenario, you automatically lose on the next day of games (in this hypothetical, Saturday of the Final 4). You are out of teams.

    -Important wrinkle for that last point: Even if you’re out of teams and headed for an automatic loss, you still have to be beaten by another contestant who made a successful pick that same day. An “automatic loss” and “a pick that became a loss” means the same.

    - Last man standing wins. Winner takes all. If more than one person is left standing, they can either split the pot or agree to keep going until someone wins … which is obviously the manly thing to do.

    Prepare to put mustard on those words, for you will soon be consuming them, along with this slice of humble pie that comes direct from the oven of shame set at gas mark “egg on your face”! -- Moss

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    Too swamped to pick two teams for Thursday? You won't have to do anything after that.

    Clark Addison also needs to text Parrothead to let him know so he's not scrambling to sign up at the last second again.
