2014 Bracket Challenge

Post by blacksheep on Thu Mar 06, 2014 11:10 am

I've set up the Bracket early this year to give Stoney lots of time to sign up.

Anyway, go here https://tournament.fantasysports.yahoo.com/quickenloansbracket/group/24895 and use the password purplepride.


Let the trash talking begin!

Thanks. Is there any way to sign up without getting a Yahoo id? I can sign in with Google but it still says I need Yahoo id.

Get a yahoo id.

Takes about a minute.
https://login.yahoo.com

Get an SMS app for free and have the SMS sent there.

If it gets annoying, delete both and start over.

Wait, there's a way to get SMS messages without giving out my phone number.  

I really hate that the geez is more tech savvy than me  I'm old!

I should have mentioned that you might be safer to do it in private mode, or better  yet, do it in a private browser, which makes the IP harder to track.

Best bet on a ipad is to use Cloudbrowse. The IP  shows up as a server somewhere in New Jersey ( different every time) and is completely anonymous as long as you use the free mode.  The NSA hates it.

Not that I would have occasion to use it...

Although those fan voting sites can't seem to figure it out...

Just make sure they can get ahold of you when you win the Billion dollar prize. It's only a 1 in 9 Quintillion chance.

Can I sign up even though I have been an absentee fan? This might be my best chance ever to net a cool billion in a two week period.

I was going to say no, but unfortunately, you already signed up.

Other than the Pilots, I don't think I've watched a combined 40 minutes of college basketball this year. I'm still looking to repeat though!

So is this correct? Because I really don't want to give yahoo my number so they can text bomb me advertisements.

I don't know, but I can tell you that in the week since I gave Yahoo my number, nothing bad has happened to me.  I haven't even received an unwanted text or call (well, at least not from Yahoo).  

Geez, you care to give an SMS tutorial?


PS - I love UP7587's bracket name

I think I'm gonna pass this year. Not too interested in giving up my # for Yahoo to spam me with, or sell, etc. Thanks anyways.

I tried google voice for an SMS number, and yahoo will not accept it. (Still debating on if I will give them mine).

Per the terms of giving them your number you agree to "no more than two" in a week. They are probably waiting until after signup to start sending them to keep the complaining down while people are still signing up.  Evil or Very Mad

I'm a big fan of Warren Buffet, but we apparently can blame him for this SMS nonsense.  We can also blame Dan Gilbert, who I'm not so much a fan of.  All of this headache will be erased from my memory when I win a cool Billion Dollars  Very Happy  (Don't worry, if I win you can be assured the Pilot program will receive a sizable donation. Think Blacksheep court at the Chiles Center)

And Blacksheep canopy at CCSC. We'll make sure the credit is on the Blacksheep video replay screen right across from the Blacksheep Pilot Pavilion.


Whoever wrote that article had the odds all screwy. The odds of me making it to the NBA  aren't $6+ million to one.

They are zero.

The brackets are out, so get signed up and fill them out.

Since last year's winner didn't make it to Vegas, PilotNut didn't have to pay out the bucket of beer. I don't know if he's renewing the prize, but if I win this year I'm going to show up in Vegas and drink it.
