The NCAA Tournament bracket came out yesterday — you might have heard this — and we were delighted to see some of the matchups, including LIU vs. Michigan State (the weakest No. 1 seed!) and Vanderbilt playing the Vanderbilt of the North. We’re also proud to announce the third annual New York Magazine Bracket Pool. Join. It’s free, and you can win a free post on this site, a free subscription to the magazine, and, uh, we dunno, we’ll make sure to regularly genuflect in your presence when you enter a room. So join! It will be fun and/or educational.
