2013 NCAA Tournament Contests



It’s that time of year again, March Madness is upon us. With less than a week until Selection Sunday all the talk is about “body of work,” good wins, bad losses, and of course, RPIs, résumés and the dreaded bubble. Once the field of 68 has been announced, how the teams got in doesn’t matter, but the excitement of filling out your bracket does.


I thought I would take a break from writing about baseball and talk about the upcoming NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and all the free games you can play. There are many different sites online where you can submit your picks and have a chance to win some great prizes. The old saying goes, “You have to be in it to win it”, so this article will provide you with some links to the most popular sites, a description of their prizes and as always followed by great recipe: This time it’s Smoked Bacon and Eggs.


Playing in a tournament challenge is simple. All you have to do is select who you think will win each of the 63 tournament games that take place starting March 18th. For each game you get right, you earn points. The point value for a correct pick increases with each round of the tournament, culminating with the championship game on April 8. Once you’ve made your selections, all you do is sit back, relax and pull for your picks to survive and advance.

Considering the unpredictable nature of the tournament every year, you certainly don’t have to be a college basketball savant to be successful. It’s a fun and easy game to play against friends, family and coworkers. You’ll see the seeds on the bracket, which will give you a better idea of which teams are expected to advance in each round. But don’t be too influenced by those numbers next to each team, because upsets happen every year, and picking the right ones is what separates the haves from the have-nots in Tournament Challenge.


It’s your bracket. Pick whichever teams you want. Want to be bold and take a huge underdog to reach the Final Four? If you know someone who took Butler or VCU to get that far in 2011, it’s likely they’ll never let you forget it. Last year, not one, but two 15-seeds pulled off early shockers, so will that persuade you to go crazy with upsets, or do you expect the favorites to hold up their end this year?

It’s been a topsy-turvy season at or near the top of the rankings, with Indiana, Michigan, Duke, Louisville and Gonzaga among the teams to occupy the No. 1 slot. Meanwhile, the Miami Hurricanes have not reached the top spot in the polls, but have turned heads with their strong play all season long.

Smoked Bacon & Eggs




6 Thin Slices of Canadian Bacon

6 Medium to Large Eggs

6 English Muffins

Sriracha Hot Sauce

Smoked Salt

Black Pepper, ground



Prepare your smoker for barbecuing, bringing the temperature 200°F – 220°F

Place your wood of choice into smoker box.

Let the Canadian Bacon sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Place bacon in smoker and cook for 15 minutes until warmed through and fragrant from the smoke.

Transfer the bacon to a greased 6-cup muffin pan, tucking each slice into the bottom of the cup. Crack an egg over each slice keeping the yolks intact.

Add enough hot sauce to your liking and sprinkle with Salt and Pepper.

Place in smoker and cook until the eggs are lightly set. About 30-35 minutes

Remove the bacon-egg combo and arrange between muffin halves for a great smoked breakfast.


*Note:  You may want to purchase a cheap pan for this recipe unless you don’t mind the pan turning dark from the smoke.
