GoPokes Billion Dollar Yahoo Bracket Pool!!! Enter now!

GoPokes Billion Dollar Yahoo Bracket Pool!!! Enter now! 


Quicken, Warren Buffett, and Yahoo have a Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge for the NCAA tournament.

I opened a pool today under Oklahoma State---Dr. 1slowpoke pool.  To enter you have to register with the Quicken Loans website.  Once you are entered you may then select to be in a private or public pool.  This is a private pool.  The password is gopokes. 

Better act quick as only 15 million can join this bracket challenge and the deadline of March 20 to fill out brackets is rapidly approaching.  If you don't have a Yahoo account you will need to open up a free Yahoo account with a Yahoo email address to enter this Bracket Challenge.

1)  Quicken Loans Billion Bracket Challenge (Register)
2)  Select Dr. 1slowpoke pool
3)  Pool ID and Password - 17869 and gopokes
4)  Brackets will be published on March 16.
5)  Pick your brackets by the deadline March 20 at 1:00 am EST

Only one bracket per person will be allowed in the Quicken Billion Bracket Challenge so you better act quickly before the 15 million registered uses are completed.  However, you can pick more than one bracket for the Dr. 1slowpoke pool.

I tried to join you pool and it said it needed a valid ID#, I tried Dr. 1slowpoke and Dr. 1slowpoke pool, neither worked. Let me know if there is anything else you might suggest.

It's working now as one person has signed up so far.  You need the ID of 17869 to enter the pool.

Thank you for doing this.  That is a nice gesture on your part.

Took a little bit to get logged in.   I haven't logged into Yahoo in years so had to retrieve my login and password....then it took a couple of attempts to connect to your bracket.   Then it needed to send me a verification text for me to enter....and lastly an email for me to click a link verifying that I also am joining the billion dollar bracket also.

Now I need to go look for a job because I was fired for screwing around on the internet so long.  biggrin

You can only enter one of your brackets into the Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge Pool and the other brackets are part of the Yahoo Challenge.  So ten of your brackets may be entered into the Yahoo Challenge. 

A perfect bracket winner gets a billion dollars over 40 annual payments or $500,000.  The top 20 brackets get $100,000 dollars.  Could OSU be this years WSU or Bucknell?

no way I'm consenting to having them send me advertisements on my phone.

I couldn't get logged in without consenting.

I can't send a link as every time I log in it goes to my page.  If I sent a link you would have access to my page.  I believe it is not advertisements they send to your cell phone but rather it is to verify your account by sending you a code.  CC they only send you updates about the tournament not advertisements.

I make a motion that if anyone wins the billion dollars they have to donate a large sum to OSU!

I will donate towards a new soccer field and baseball field for sure and maybe to put a dome over BPS!

I make a motion that if anyone wins the billion that they give 1/2 billion to Obama... as if you have a choice.

500 million doesn't sound quite as impressive, but 1/5 of your new net worth should complete whatever construction remains of the village.
