Regular readers have already grasped that I'm a big UCLA fan. BIIIIGGG UCLA fan. As evidenced by the jersey I make my dog wear and the cheerleading outfits I bought the girls 3 months before they were born. As irony would have it the tag said 12 months but they outgrew them around 4 months. ... a good 8 months before the 2010 football season kicked off. Speaking of football it's kind of a painful subject for us Bruins. Just as painful to watch as it is to talk about. Basketball, on the other hand, is another subject. And this year we're in striking position to take the PAC-10 and make a nice little tourney run here at the end of the month. That's why I was pretty excited when Supercuts got in touch with me yesterday to offer me my first reader giveaway as part of their Hunt For Houston promo. If your not a college basketball fan, Houston is where the Final Four is going to be. You can enter their contest to win a trip for 2 to Houston (April 1-5, 2011) including airfare, 4 nights of hotel accommodations and $500 spending money by going to their facebook page.
For our giveaway, though, we're giving out a package with a $20 Supercuts gift card, a $20 Sports Authority gift card, an office basketball set (hoop and ball) and, wait for it, a foam finger. I know, I know!!! Saaaahhwwweeeeetttt. All you have to do is tell me who you think makes it to the Final Four, the Championship and who cuts down the net at the end of the tourney. If there's a tie I've got a gem of a tie breaker trivia question. If not, the foam finger is all yours. Let me know your picks in the comments section for this post. You have until March 15th (opening day of play) to make your picks. 1 point for a correct final four team, 2 points for a correct finals team, 4 points for the overall winner. Highest point total wins.
